People Keep Vandalizing This City's Pride Crosswalks
"This is a direct attack on the LGBTQ+ community and specifically the Transgender community."
Someone has defaced the pride crosswalks in Lethbridge, Alberta's Pride, for the second time in three days — this time with tar and manure.
On June 12, the crosswalks were vandalized with skid marks, just a week after they were painted.
"These marks are blatantly deliberate, and nearly identical to a similar incident in Saskatoon earlier this month. This is a direct attack on the LGBTQ+ community and specifically the Transgender community," organizers wrote on Facebook.
"However, we at Lethbridge Pride Fest know this is the action of a few small minded, intolerant people," they added. "This will not bring us down. This will only propel us to work harder, be louder, and be prouder in our community."
