Chicago's Boystown neighborhood has added a little color, thanks to rainbow pride crosswalks.
Initiated by the Northalsted Business Alliance, the rainbows will adorn 14 crosswalks on east-west streets parallel to Halsted from Melrose north to Bradley, excluding Addison.
Thirteen of the crosswalks will feature the rainbow design that represents diversity and has become an inclusive symbol of the worldwide LGBTQ+ pride movement since the 1970's. The 14th crosswalk will be dedicated to the transgender community. The blue, pink and white stripes found on the transgender flag will be located on Melrose south of the Howard Brown Health Center.
The crosswalks pictured are at Halsted and Roscoe streets.
