A banner created by famous graffiti artist Stik for Hackney Council in this year’s Pride parade is on display at the borough’s museum.
Stik, who is from Hackney, had created a rainbow coloured banner, featuring his recognisable stick-figures, for the council’s LGBT equality float.
Now the banner has gone on display at Hackney museum and will be later auctioned with the money raised going towards funding LGBT projects in the east London borough.
Stik said: “This banner is a symbol of universal connection but the fact that two people holding hands can be seen as an act of defiance says that we have work to do as a society.
Hackney Museum is helping give life to the banner beyond the pride parade and make real change in our borough and hopefully, eventually the world.”
The street artist has been known for his artwork supporting social causes. One of his previous projects were created to highlight the lack of social housing in London.
The Pride banner, which was manufactured by Flagmakers, will be on display at Hackney museum till the end of October.
