Lewis Hamilton wears a rainbow helmet at Spanish Grand Prix

During the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton wore a rainbow helmet with the words “Love is Love” to celebrate Pride. 

This is not the first time Hamilton has shown support for the LGBTQ+ community, previously wearing various Pride-related designs, including at the Qatar Grand Prix, where his helmet featured a Progress Pride flag design and the words “We Stand Together”.

Hamilton kept the same helmet for races in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates, making a statement in places not known for their tolerance of the LGBTQ+ community.

Hamilton also vowed to stand with the LGBTQ+ community in Florida. “It’s not good at all,” he said of Florida lawmakers expanding the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law, which prohibits discussion of LGBTQ+ lives across all school grades. “I stand by those within the community here. I hope they continue to stand firm and push back,” he added.

Many thanks Lewis!!!
