PHOTOS: Gays Trick Out WeHo Crosswalk For L.A. Pride

If you didn’t know, we’re heading into L.A. Pride weekend, and to celebrate the West Hollywood city council approved a plan  to paint the crosswalk at San Vicente and Santa Monica boulevards all the colors of the gay rainbow. (They go back to drab yellow in July.)

It’s really great they’ve done this but if the council really wanted to make that crosswalk gay, they’d have replaced the walk sign with a “Sashay/Shantay” indicator.

      That’s great. Is it permanently painted? From the picture, it looks so. I’ll have to drive over and check it out.

      In West Hollywood, they really should paint the cross walks in rainbow colors, permanently. The price of the paint is about the same, though it might take more labor. The borders between the colors don’t need to be particularly neat.

      Perhaps some other cities will follow suit.

      I have to say, it is pretty. But they had to do something, after S.D. renamed a street, and the giant rainbow flag at Castro and Market.
      But again, the WeHo drive, Santa Monica Blvd, is a frigging freeway. Typical bad Southern CA taste. Darlings, move the strip to someplace quiter, and with more of a village like oeuvre.

      They should just leave it that way, considering the thousands of dollars it takes to paint a crosswalk.
