Philadelphia’s Gayborhood to Get Rainbow Crosswalks

Philadelphia's gayborhoodExpect to see a burst of color if you’re walking through the Gayborhood this summer.

Philly Pride Presents in collaboration with the City of Philadelphia will paint permanent rainbow-colored crosswalks at 12th and Locust and 13th and Locust streets following Philadelphia’s Pride Parade. The eight crosswalks will be dedicated at the Annual Reminders Block Party on July 5th honoring the 50th anniversary of the first U.S. LGBT-rights group demonstrations.

The crosswalks have been a long time coming, said Philly Pride Presents executive director Franny Price. “We know that other cities have installed rainbow crosswalks,” Price told the Philadelphia Gay News, “and we have been trying to do the same in Philadelphia for a long time.”
