Gay Walk Signals Prevail Over Homophobes In Austria

The city council of Linz, Austria has overruled the anti-gay Freedom Party to bring back its (get this) gay-themed traffic lights.

A spokesman for the Freedom Party said that “traffic lights are for traffic and should not be misused to impart advice on how to live your life.” What is with anti-gay folks thinking that the existence of gay people constitutes gay people trying to tell other people how to live? Weird.

The traffic lights (or, I guess, walk signals) feature either a man and a woman, a man and a man, or a woman and a woman holding hands with a little heart over the couple. Vienna also has inclusive walk signals.

Is this not unbelievably cute?! Why don’t we have these in America?! (Oh, right: Homophobes.)
