My sister sent me this snap today from London and told me that many pedestrian lights near Trafalgar Square have lgbt+ symbols on them. Turns out, it’s true and wonderful:
After doing a little research, I found that these pedestrian lights were installed for London Pride in 2016. Unlike many cities in the United States, London opted to keep the Pride symbols even after Pride had concluded and still has no plans to take them down. Kudos to London on visibility for visibility’s sake.
I’m proud to say I live in the very first state to have an openly gay governor, Jared Polis (right). He is also the first Jewish governor in Colorado history. This is a huge win for Colorado and a big step for the United States.
