From Key West Trash to Treasure: Landfill Becomes Big Gay Beacon

THE SHOT — With the help of a dozen volunteers, John Mumford and Rick Worth spent Friday painting “Mt. Trashmore” (the nickname of Key West’s giant landfill, which happens to be the islands’ highest point) with this 125×60-foot pride flag. It took 87 gallons of paint.

“I thought this would be a great way to get people into the spirit of PrideFest and promote the PrideFest events,” says Mumford, who sits on the local business guild organizing Key West’s pride, which kicks off Wednesday.

      The last time I went to Key West, I saw more pride flags than I ever have at a parade. Loved it, and I would go there for pride if I thought I could afford it.

      It is an awesome sight as you drive down the BLVD. But this is one of the reasons I live in Key West, even our trash dump is GAY!!

      That’s awesome! I love how they painted little rainbow people holding the edges of the flag up too. And the drop shadow – now that’s dedication!

      That must be the cleanest trash dump in the world. The view is not bad either.
