Permanent Rainbow Crosswalks in Cities? Why?

Time-

The city of Atlanta is making its celebration of the LGBTQ community this month permanent.

Last week, the city announced a rainbow crosswalk temporarily installed in the city during Atlanta Pride Week in 2015 will become a permanent fixture. The decision came one year after 49 people were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., in a devastating tragedy for the country and especially the LGBTQ community.

To honor those lives lost and make Pride Month a year-long celebration, the permanent rainbow crosswalks will be installed at the intersection of Piedmont Avenue and 10th Street in midtown Atlanta — a community historically known for being the hub of the city’s LGBTQ community.

“For the past year, Atlanta has grieved alongside Orlando,”Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said in a statement. “Our city has rallied around our LGBT community, and we have not shied from demonstrating our unity and solidarity. And with this spirit, I cannot think of a more important time to reaffirm our unwavering and unqualified support for our LGBTQ residents.”

The Blaze reports-

Activists are urging local lawmakers to create the crosswalks through the use of petitions. Currently, one of the cities targeted is Chicago. A petition is now circulating there that has garnered more than 4,000 signatures. According to the petition’s text, “Some cities, like San Francisco, have made LGBTQ people feel more at home by creating permanent rainbow crosswalks to honor the LGBTQ community. … This is one small thing that could be done to signal to one of the most marginalized communities in the country that we are here for them, we see them, and we support them.”

  1. Yep, I’ll bet there’s lots and lots of gay people in Atlanta. What will end up happening is the paint (or whatever coloring they’ll use) will wear off, they’ll begin to look patchy and ugly, the cost of maintaining them will far exceed the cost of a regular crosswalk but LGBT Mafia will demand the city use scarce resources to keep them patched up while other crosswalks gets worse and worse until you can’t see the lines. Wish there was a funny punchline to this but I don’t think there is. Maybe when the gay community demands some needed health initiative they’ll be told all the money in the budget was spent on their crosswalks.

  2. Primitive visible territory assertion.

    Emulating the success of black activist turf assertion. But LGBT lacks any Official Martyr Names List for re-naming major streets.
    Not much acceptance (Yet) for Ru-Paul Boulevard and Caitlyn Highway.
    There’s Harvey Milk, but his brand did not sell well with focus group testing: the pedo-underage-homeless predator image didn’t sell well among blacks or Pussyhat Moms.

    Streets will be the hot new Official Public Mural Graffiti battlespaces.
    Look for Muzzies and others to begin demanding local government pay for Tribal Turf Billboards the public must walk and drive on.
    Orwellian.

  3. Atlanta was a ciswhite city. Then it tried being a cisbrown city. Whether its just boredom, or that minority isn’t minor enough, now they’ve decided to speed things up by turning into a queerwhite city. Sorry, brown people, even queerbrown people, you know, in your blessed hearts, that Queer Power™ is a very white thing.

  4. We need an Orlando Pulse Club every weekend. Remember that the homos are as evil an enemy as the muzfilth. Sounds so terrible of me to say, some might think, but it is 100 % true.

    Homos are violent and have routinely attacked innocent people, just not yet on the scale of the inbred blood thirsty cave dwelling muzlime savages. But they would already be doing similar type terror attacks if they thought they could get away with them wholesale like the muzrats can.

    Do NOT make the mistake of thinking its noble and righteous to ever lift one finger to defend a homo or prevent the well deserved treatment they get from the muzlime scum they so blindly and mindlessly defend. Before the muzlime filth are eradicated, first let them have their way with the homos as much as possible.

  5. I’m no lawyer, but I’m pretty sure you can’t decide to paint an intersection an array of colors. It’s not safe. That’s why white and yellow paints are used as standard.

    The first faggot that gets tagged in the crosswalk would have a hard time suing the driver. Distraction is a real thing. The faggot would need to sue the city for celebrating his desire to take it up the ass.

  6. MissInMi- I almost fell off the couch laughing at that.
    scr_north- I thought about the bald patches on the sidewalks issue, too. Could you imagine the cost? Atlanta could be ripped off from all directions trying to maintain exact colors and how are they going to maintain the ‘straight’ lines? lolz

  7. @ Mike Brown is an American Hero

    “The Pink Swastika” provides some surprising support for your claims and is worth a glance. And it’s free.

  8. Waiting for the SJW’s to complain about the white stripes that encompass the rainbow. It’s whiteness being oppressive…and there’s 2 white stripes while all other colors only got 1 stripe.

  9. Next up, BLM will demand crosswalks painted Black and Brown and Kamala Harris-“Octaroon Beige”.

    Competitive Victimization.

  10. you just know someone’s gonna paint a blue St. Andrews Cross w/13 white stars on it, & 4 cute red triangles in the middle of that 🙂
