Gay toilet signs next…..?
Vienna has debuted some special gay-friendly traffic lights ahead of hosting the Eurovision Song Contest later this month.
Dozens of lights in the Austrian capital are now showing male or female gay couples in both red for stop and green for go, instead of the standard single man.
The campaign aims to present Vienna as a welcoming, open-minded place while also improving road safety by attracting more attention to the lights, a spokesperson from the city lighting department told Reuters. Data will be collated once the campaign ends to assess how helpful it has been.
Eurovision is celebrating its 60th anniversary, with the grand final taking place on Saturday 23 May. The annual kitsch-fest has a huge gay fanbase and was won triumphantly last year by bearded transgender singer Conchita Wurst.
