Come Out of the Shadows

Lighting up against hate crime


Liverpool’s most iconic buildings light up in rainbow colours

Liverbirds COTS


Come Out of the Shadows is a hate crime awareness campaign.

The campaign’s goal is to show Liverpool as an LGBT+ friendly city for residents and visitors, whilst raising awareness and 'normalising' all forms of LGBT+ within society.

We believe that discrimination in any form is unacceptable and created this lighting strategy to celebrate equality and diversity.
