I walked to the end of the rainbow and found something even better than a pot of gold. I found not merely tolerance, but acceptance. I found Gay Pride. For the month of June, Boston replaced some crosswalks with bright colorful rainbows. Besides a beautiful street, they represent social progress. Because let’s face it: the LGTB community deserves the same rights as heterosexuals. No one should be discriminated. Period. No discussion there.
I’m glad to see these crosswalks still shinning, as they should be. I’m glad that they bring a constant reminder and importance to a topic so commonly discussed (mainly in politics). And I’m certainly glad I have the opportunity to live in an open-minded city like this.
