Rainbow Crosswalk – Part 3


Last week, a request for rainbow sidewalks received a mixed reaction at Coquitlam city hall.

This week, the nearby Evergreen Cultural Centre (ECC) gave a response of its own, installing the colours of the rainbow on large doors facing Guildford Way.

On Wednesday, just before hundreds of people filed into city hall for its annual Welcome to Coquitlam gathering, ECC installed a rainbow covering on the glass door entrance to Studio D, a rental space used for teaching.

The public statement is timely. Not only is the venue hosting this week the show End of the Rainbow — a salute to Judy Garland, an icon in the LGBTQ community — but it’s also responding to the discussion by city council and the public about a proposal for a rainbow crosswalk.

That topic came up last week when Nicola Spurling, an LGBTQ advocate asked Coquitlam council to consider painting a rainbow crosswalk.
