London: postbox № W1D 114/314, Dean Street
This double-aperture postbox, on the corner of Old Compton Street, has been painted in rainbow colours by Royal Mail to mark Pride the LGBTI (lesbian/gay/bi/transsexual/intersex) celebration for the latter part of July and very early August.

The paragraph between the collection plates, which is repeated in larger type across the yellow strip around the back, states:
"This special edition 'Rainbow' postbox has been decorated to mark Pride in London 2018. This postbox celebrates the LGBTI community, who also chose its location, and Royal Mail's commitment to Deliver with Pride and without discrimination."

The box will remain in rainbow colours until 3 August.

Royal Mail has used the additional letter I (for intersex) which is perhaps not as familiar as the abbreviation LGBT.
