A rainbow artwork has appeared in Soho Square to welcome Londoners out of the latest stage of lockdown restrictions.
Looking suspiciously like it should have a children’s swing in it, the 2-metre high tubular rainbow has been created by London-based artist Graham McLoughlin, and is said to reflect both the local gay community and the NHS rainbow
The artwork is called OHelloSunshine.

Graham McLoughlin’s work became more widely recognised following his HeartsOfLondon art installation in 2015, comprising 14 heart-shaped cycle stands across London to celebrate British design and promote cycling in the city.
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
