Time Out says

West Hollywood might not be the very first city to add a touch of rainbow to the street, but this photogenic crosswalk is certainly the most notable permanent fixture like it in a major city. The city painted two rainbow crosswalks on San Vicente Boulevard in late 2012, and ever since it seems nearly impossible to imagine the area without them. The intersection with Santa Monica Boulevard marks the longtime (and now likely former) home of LA Pride, as well as a spot along the Pride Parade route and at the gateway to one of the most vibrant gay villages in the world. It’s not just a colorful photo op, though, rather a statement of identity for easily SoCal’s most progressive city, which recently decided to add brown and black stripes to the crosswalks for inclusivity, as well as to create another crosswalk that corresponds to the blue, pink and white transgender flag.
