Something exciting happened overnight in Sydney. Last month was the gay and a lesbian Mardi Gras, a major event. A rainbow pedestrian crossing was created at Taylor Square, the main road junction the parade passes through.This week in an act of stupidity, the state government went in at dead of night and at a cost of $30,000.00 removed it.
No, I’m not gay, but I’m for more happiness in the world, so I am for gay marriage and rainbow crossings.
Last night a guerrilla movement has sprung up all over the inner west of Sydney, and other places too, and people are chalking rainbow crossings everywhere. Their motto is ‘Dont get angry, get chalking’. They even have their own Facebook page. DIY Rainbow Crossings.
Port Macquarie (a few hours north of Sydney) is sold out of coloured chalks. There is a rainbow crossing in Ballarat in Victoria and even an international one in Phoenix Arizona.
Well, at risk of sounding like the lightbulb joke, I think it’s faaaaaabulous!
