Rainbow Crosswalks Installed in Downtown Austin

The crosswalks were installed in recognition of National Coming Out Day on Monday, Oct. 11 

Austin Pride spearheaded the campaign for rainbow crosswalks at 4th and Colorado for several years. This past October we saw that dream become a reality. 4th Street has always been OUR safe space and now everyone knows it. The proclamation from the city read in part: “It will stand as a beacon and a symbol of diversity to everyone who lives in and visits Austin, as a city that is welcome to and accepting of everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.” After instillation, Austin Pride held a free photo shoot for all to enjoy and celebrate.

“Austin Pride is excited to finally have a visible representation for everyone to see on OUR street! We absolutely loved doing this photo shoot with you all. You have never looked better.”  – TAPF Team
