South Broadway to get rainbow-striped crosswalks in time for Denver Pride

DENVER – An intersection south of downtown Denver will soon get a rainbow makeover.

Organizers say they’ve raised most of the money they need to convert two crosswalks at South Broadway and West Irvington Place into a rainbow-striped symbol of support for Denver’s LGBTQ community.

The initiative is a joint venture between Buffalo Exchange, the Baker-Broadway Merchant Association and city councilors Jolon Clark and Robin Kniech.

Buffalo Exchange holds its annual “crosswalk walk-off” fashion show at that intersection during Denver Pride. This year’s event is set for June 15 and organizers plan to have the crosswalk finished by then.

Organizers plan to use a permanent thermoplastic material for the design rather than paint.
