Rainbow Crossing for Adelaide?


Adelaide City Council will investigate the potential for a permanent rainbow pedestrian crossing to celebrate LGBTI culture, following the passage of my motion last night.

My motion that administration bring back a report that investigates locations, costs and approvals required for a permanent rainbow crossing in the city was supported, 7 votes to 4.

The potential for a rainbow crossing has generated significant media interest and community debate. Here are some of the highlights:
