The emerald cities push to have a permanent street crossing may have gone up in smoke thanks to the conservative state government, but the state opposition, federal member for Sydney and city council are not standing still.
Like the crossing had a sister in Los Angeles, a new concept taken from our brothers and sisters in San Fransisco, and brought forward by community advocate, Damon Hartley, has ignited a great passion across the community - for the installation of a giant rainbow flag at the Taylor Square intersection.
This morning, Federal member for Sydney and Health Minister, Tanya Plibersek, Sydney council member Linda Scott, and NSW State Labor (and opposition) leader, John Robertson launched the campaign for a rainbow flag of Sydney's own.
The motion will be put forward to Council on Monday night, where the #DIYRainbow movement will stage a "chalk in" in george street to publicly support the motion for a rainbow flag whilst reminding the public about the loss of the iconic Rainbow street crossing that was installed as a trial over Mardi Gras 2013.
If you want to join in - turn up to the Sydney Town Hall, George Street, 6pm.
You can join the Rainbow Flag movement on Facebook too.
