City Council member pushes back against homophobic response to Old Town rainbow crosswalks

City Council member pushes back against homophobic response to Old Town rainbow crosswalks

At a recent City Council meeting, Council member John Chapman pushed back against critics of the city’s new rainbow crosswalks in Old Town celebrating the LGBTQ community.

The crosswalks, a project City Council member Kirk McPike helped spearhead, debuted this year in time for Pride Month. The crosswalks at the intersection of King and Royal streets are a permanent new addition to the city’s streetscape.

Since then, however, the crosswalks have been the target of ire from some of the usual crowd. Moms for Liberty cofounder Tiffany Justice, for instance, suggested the sidewalks were part of the “trans cult” agenda.

They have a half mile long section of street painted with a rainbow almost as wide as the street. Tiffany would stroke out.
