Rainbow Bridge. What is it? There are three versions of this landmark around the city. Two sit at the eastern and western ends of Chang’an Jie.

There is a neo-70s socialist aesthetic evoked in the faded rainbow sections, 1980s-style chunky lettering and the feel of expired hi-tech enterprises from the boom years of the 1990s.’ Billy Tang, curatorial director, Magician Space. Time Out says: An amalgamation of three generations of Gay Pride events, more like.
