Burrard Bridge petition would turn city landmark into a pride rainbow
More than 800 people have already voted 'yes' to the 'Pride Rainbow' idea
A bid to colour Vancouver's Burrard Bridge into the biggest pride rainbow in the world has gathered hundreds of supporters.
"This needs to happen," wrote Suzanne Lindsay of Vancouver, in support of a huge rainbow installation on one of the city's oldest' landmarks.
A petition started by "Rainbow Warrior" on Change.org already has more than 800 people signed up to urge the City of Vancouver to "show your love and support for your city, and the LGBTQ community" in a colourful way.
"We're going to build the biggest pride rainbow ever," claims the website.
The goal is 1,000 signatures. Those who signed the petition say the change would signal how the world sees Vancouver.
"Because homophobia is one of the greatest plagues in this world. Showing acceptance and embracing differences is a step forward in our society," Israel Delage wrote.
The hope is to unveil the rainbow July 30th in the middle of Pride Week, officially making Vancouver "somewhere over the rainbow."
