I love pride colored roadways and cross-walks, but, unfortunately they only look good (up close, anyway) right after they paint them. Dirt, tire marks, etc. quickly make them feel dirty, which we don't notice on standard roadways and so up close they aren't so attractive. I walk over them at the intersection of Santa Monica Blvd. and San Vicente, in fact I will in a couple hours when I go grocery shopping, and I always seem to cringe when I see them up close.

A local gift shop sells pride coloured doormats. I look at them and think why would you want one when they are used to clean the soles and heels of your shoes before you go inside the house ? It would get dirty and muddy.

This is so sad, yet I guess we can be thankful that his lifestyle no longer needs to be covered up and we can feel for his husband.

Back in '07 Philadelphia painted some of the crosswalks in our gayborhood in rainbow stripes. They are badly in need of repainting--if that will ever take place.

I live in the MidWest USA, and 'society' here will NEVER be totally accepting, at least in my lifetime, but for the younger generations, they ARE more accepting. Which is good. However, with Trump and his supporters around? We're heading backwards.......... :o >:( :(...IMHO, you understand??  ;D
