Phoenix is latest metropolis to get LGBT pride rainbow crosswalks

Phoenix is about to get a lot more queer. City officials have approved plans for two rainbow colored crosswalks to celebrate LGBT pride.

The city council voted unanimously to allow LGBT organizations to give the existing crosswalks a makeover. The groups will also pay to maintain the vibrant colors.

“The time is right to move this proposal forward to bring rainbow crosswalks … so that our city can continue to embrace and thrive in our diversity and our inclusion and in welcoming all people who wish to visit, live in, work in, build a business in or simply enjoy the city of Phoenix,” Michael Fornelli, Phoenix Pride executive director, told the Arizona Republic.

Several other cities around the nation have installed rainbow colored crosswalks in the past couple of years as a way of showing support for the LGBT community.
