35W bridge lit up for Pride

Minneapolis Pride from Matty Lang on Vimeo.

Thanks to Matt Lang for sharing this video with MinnClips.


In celebration of Twin Cities Pride weekend the Minnesota Department of Transportation programed the LED lights on the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi river to bathe the bridge in a beautiful rainbow color. This is a time-lapse film showing the transformation of the Mill Ruins Park, the Stone Arch bridge and the I-35W bridge as dusk fell into night in downtown Minneapolis on June 24, 2011.

    Exactly how much of our tax money was spent “celebrating” aberrant social pathologies?

    @Neal – Probably less than is spent defending your right to be publicly intolerant.

    Although I am curious as to the cost.

    Tax money financing the lighting of a bridge for a socio-political agenda costs more than defending my right of conscience.

    The projection of intolerance is noted as well.
