A little smile to start your morning: in June, the City of West Hollywood painted two crosswalks with rainbow colors to celebrate Pride Month. The City Council liked them so much it voted on August 20 to make them permanent, and construction on the permanent rainbow-colored crosswalks at Santa Monica and San Vicente Boulevards began Monday. KTLA reports that the crosswalks will have new asphalt and skid-resistant thermoplastic pavement markings.

The West Hollywood City Council hopes the new crosswalks will help brand the city as an LGBT tourist destination. What do you think, will the crosswalks help make West Hollywood more visibly LGBT-friendly? I know one thing: the next time in town, I’m totally checking them out!
