Is Denver about to get a fabulous set of rainbow crosswalks?

A rendition of what the crosswalks will look like Broadway Crosswalk

Denver is about to get more colorful.

City Councilman Jolon Clark and local neighborhoods have been raising money for rainbow crosswalks at the intersection of Broadway and Irvington, a neighborhood that is used during Pridefest.

The local businesses made a website to raise money for the rainbow crosswalk, which they predict will cost $25,000. They have raised over $18,000 so far.

“It’s a very divisive time, and there’s a lot of anger and groups of people who feel like they’re not being represented and being left out,” Clark told Westword.

“This is… a way we as a city and community can wrap our arms around the LGBTQ community and tell them how much we value them, care about them and love them in a very tangible and visible way.”

They are hoping to complete the project by June 1, just before Pride month starts, so that the crosswalks can be used during Pridefest as a fashion runway.
