| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikViral: NewsLGBT

Seattle shows just how accepting it is with rainbow crosswalks!

Simply amazing!

Seattle mayor Ed Murray is taking his city to the next level in honor of LGBT Pride! On Tuesday, the openly gay mayor of the Emerald City transformed 11 crosswalks into rainbow masterpieces!

They are all located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood — which is known for being a gay-friendly area — and were installed just in time for the city's Pride Week celebrations.

But the bright colors won't be washed away with the celebration!

Ed says that they are expected to last anywhere from three to five years, but he hopes to maintain them even longer!

The best part is this isn't even the first time this has been done!

Key West, Florida installed similar crosswalks last month, San Francisco did so last year, and West Hollywood had the same idea back in 2012.

It turns out Seattle had been planning to liven up their crosswalks for a while now, but couldn't swing the cost until recently. Each crosswalk cost about $6,000, and they're being funded by private developers.

We absolutely LOVE that this city isn't limiting its public display of acceptance just to Pride Week or Pride Month, because tolerance and love are things you should feel year-round!

Great going, Seattle!
