Earlier this week, the Adelaide City Council waved its rainbow flag proudly and gave project Rainbow Walk the go-ahead.
The project will be a permanent pathway in the CBD that pays homage to the state’s LGBTQI+ history and community. Included in the stretch will be a timeline, showcasing major milestones, people and events in SA’s past within the community.
In 1975 SA was the first state in Australia to decriminalise homosexuality, and what a way to celebrate the recent 40-year anniversary by recognising the people and moments that help shape the state today.
Set to be off Currie Street in Light Square (right near the Adelaide College of the Arts), the changes are to start in September, in time to walk on sunshine for Feast Festival and Pride March in October.
In a statement after the decision was made, Lord Mayor Martin Haese explained how proud he is of the ‘major contribution to the vibrancy of our city’ the LGBTQI+ community in South Australia has made.
Haese continued by saying by 'Using the rainbow colours in a public space… along with flying the rainbow flag from the Town Hall during the Feast Festival, are just two of the ways we can demonstrate our support for and commitment to diversity.’
The official name for the project will be decided after conversation with the community.
Feast Festival is starting on October 21st and running for two weeks until November 6th.
