    Liverpool becomes the first UK city to have gay street signs

    I knew the Mickey Mousers were a bit suspect, but I didn't think they'd beat London to the (donkey) punch.



    Liverpool has become the first city in Britain to have street signs emblazoned with the rainbow arch, the first of which was unveiled on Stanley Street at the heart of the city’s new gay quarter on Friday.


    Liverpool has become the first city in Britain to have street signs emblazoned with the rainbow arch, the first of which was unveiled on Stanley Street at the heart of the city’s new gay quarter on Friday.


    The signs, which appear along Stanley Street, Cumberland Street, Temple Lane, Eberle Street and Temple Street, have been introduced following the decision by the city’s council to officially recognise the Stanley Street Quarter as a gay area in August. The signage is one of the first visible initiatives to be implemented following this recognition.


    Adam Simpson from Liverpool LGB&T said the move is the first step towards making the neighbourhood a prime destination.


    “The Liverpool LGB&T Network are proud to see such a visible indication of the joint work between the community, business and Liverpool City Council,” Simpson told Seen Magazine. “We will continue to work together with the City Council to develop the Stanley Street Quarter into a first rate destination for residents and visitors,” he added.


    The first sign was unveiled by the Deputy Lord Mayor of Liverpool and Councillor Sharon Sullivan on Friday afternoon in a ceremony attended by a number of residents and owners of local businesses.


    Candice Fonseca, owner of Delifonseca delicatessen, said the signs and the recognition of the quarter would benefit local businesses.


    “As a local business, we are delighted with the new signage which is the first tangible mark of real change to come. By showing visitors to our city where and what the Stanley Street Quarter is, businesses like ours will be able to benefit,” she said.

    Actually not a bad idea. Now they just need to issue the poofs with id cards and restrict them to 'their' areas. Maybe Liverpool council could discuss with the Thais how they manage Burmese workers to get some good ideas.

    They'll presumably steal them, before melting them down to something they can inject/smoke.

    Yeah, you'd think that streets for feminists, diffabled people, ginners, and whatever else would come higher up the pecking order for desperate minorities seeking legitimacy through publicly-funded gimmicks during a major recession.

    What the hell! Used to go to Liverpool to throw rocks at the Orange parade! God in my day an area full of gays would have been like Christmas come early. Maybe the world is growing up? Sounds just like a commercial hype.I have heard rumors that Wigan is being a deemed Europe's martian only zone.

    The fucked up UK headline for the week.

    It doesn't quite match the brother and sister elevator sex though.

    looks good on the whole country

    ^ I believe it may have been the mention of 'being up queer street'
