A set of crosswalks in West Hollywood have been painted with rainbow colors to celebrate Gay Pride.

The rainbow-colored crosswalks are located at the intersection of San Vicente Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard and will remain in place for the entire month of June, SDGLN.com reported.

The street mural was completed in time for this weekend's 42nd annual Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade, which wends its way from Crescent Heights Boulevard to Robertson Boulevard down Santa Monica Boulevard.

Los Angeles artist Martin Duvander proposed the idea to lawmakers. Mayor Jeff Prang and Councilmember John Duran sponsored the item and City Council gave its unanimous approval on Monday, June 4.

“It passed with such ease,” Duvander said. “I thought we would have to fight for it but all council members including the mayor voted in favor. I was very proud at that moment to see American democracy in action. To be part of that process was very exciting and I was honored to be part of it.”

“A gentleman at the City Council meeting told me that this intersection is a symbol of gay-lesbian rights. It was there where many demonstrations had gathered. So to be smack in the middle of it is an honor.”

Duvander added that he hopes painting the crosswalks rainbow colors will become an annual Gay Pride tradition in the city.
