Funny, but they’ve never changed the lights to red, white and blue [Darleen Click]

… for July 4th

The iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign the greets visitors to our city at the far south end of Las Vegas Boulevard will feature rainbow colored lights for the next 11 days in honor of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender community.

The sign was relit with red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple in honor of the LGBT rainbow flag ahead of the Las Vegas Pride celebration.

  1. sigh
    the sign: it’s text, graphics, and background are red white and blue

  2. The iconic sign is in a shitty part of town frequented by hookers and drug dealers. I say it’s perfect.

  3. So when were the outlining incandescent bulbs, which are in discussion here, changed for any other event?

    And the Vegas sign, either in daylight or night is dominantly red & yellow.

    My, how you trolls have to reach.

  4. My, how you trolls have to reach.

    Birds gotta fly.
    Fish gotta swim.
    Trolls gotta troll.

  5. Here is a story from my neck of the woods.

    This year has brought waves of good news for gays and lesbians living in the United States, especially in California, where same-sex weddings resumed in June, following a landmark Supreme Court ruling.

    But a small city in the Central Valley area of California is bucking that trend.

    This week, the city council of Porterville voted to rescind a proclamation made last month by the mayor declaring June 2013, LGBT Pride Month. Three council members argued that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community should not get “special consideration,” and voted to replace the gay pride proclamation with a resolution declaring June 2013 “a month of community charity and goodwill to all in Porterville.” […]

    In 2008, Porterville’s was the only city council in the state to pass a resolution in favor of Proposition 8. […]

    The mayor, who at one point in a video of the council meeting appears to be in tears, said she didn’t think that the proclamation was controversial when a community member first submitted it for her approval.

    [bolded parts to show an obvious lie]

    This woman mayor is a real piece of work. She knew there was no support from the city council, didn’t follow protocol when she did the proclamation, then actually cried during the meeting (both meetings actually, and her husband actually physically challenged one of the councilmen during the second meeting, which was very ironic since it was all supposed to be tied to anti-bullying), evoked God, and basically created a very gay pride moment.

  6. Another reason to avoid that shithole.

  7. The Other McCain assures us worse is coming…

  8. Maybe the Vegas mobsters were told “if ya likes yer town, you’ll do what yer told…”
