LGBT advocates in AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s third-gayest city have renewed their push to install rainbow-colored crosswalks on a downtown street.
Austin Pride wants two rainbow-colored crosswalks on Bettie Naylor Street Ã¢â‚¬â€ named for a pioneering Texas LGBT activist Ã¢â‚¬â€ in the cityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s warehouse district, which is home to its largest gay nightclubs.
The rainbow crosswalks received initial approval from the City Council in 2014, but the proposal was later rejected due to a lack of public support after some nearby business owners objected.
Now, Austin Pride has launched a Change.org petition to resurrect the project.
