You can find this brand spanking new mosaic of a gay couple at the new NYC subway line and it’s incredibly sweet

The New York subway system is making headlines this week, with the opening of its long-awaited Second Avenue line. One of the new stations along that line is newsworthy on its own for reasons far beyond New Yorkers’ morning commute. A mural at the 72nd Street station depicts two men holding hands, a depiction of gay partners that’s rare in public art.
