Steve tipped this story, but, just for the record, I saw it earlier today but I was at work so I couldn’t do nuthin’ about it. Vienna Austria is celebrating gayness with its pedestrian lights.
Lights at 120 pedestrian crossings are receiving a quirky makeover: instead of the traditional single figure, they now show either a heterosexual or gay couple with hearts.
Officials said the revamped signals were signs of Vienna’s tolerance, celebrating not only the song contest, but also the HIV/AIDS charity Life Ball event on May 16 and the Rainbow Parade in June.
What could be gayer than gay pedestrian crosswalks? How about drag queen sewers?
Cleverly hidden stereo systems inside the gutters play Austria’s two winning Eurovision songs — one by bearded drag queen Conchita Wurst
Closet masochist that I am, I looked up Conchita Wurst’s song on YouTube. As expected, it’s godawful. To his credit though, Conchita pulls off femininity better than Hillary.
The title for this post is in, what the POTUS would call, “the Austrian language.”
