“This is a direct attack on the LGBTQ+ community and specifically the Transgender community.”
Someone has defaced the pride crosswalks in Lethbridge, Alberta’s Pride, for the second time in three days — this time with tar and manure.
For this year's festival, Lethbridge Pride Fest paid to paint two crosswalks, one with a rainbow and the other with the colours of the trans pride flag. According to organizers, it's the first time the trans flag has been painted on a crosswalk anywhere in the world.
Then, sometime on Wednesday night, someone covered the rainbow crosswalk with tar and manure, according to Lethbridge police.
Police are now investigating, but say they have no additional details at this time.
