BEAR-ILLIANT: The monument and inauguration attendees.
FUENGIROLA has continued to stomp the rainbow road, with the installation of a permanent monument on Torreblanca roundabout to demonstrate its continued solidarity with the LGBT movement.
Town mayor, Ana Mula, was present at the inauguration ceremony, accompanied by big cheeses from LGBT associations ‘Arco Iris’ and ‘COLEGA,’ and all appeared delighted with the multi-coloured henge-like structure.
A plaque attached to the front reads: “The rainbow roundabout represents equality and diversity for humanity, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.”
The mayor said the installation serves to help break down barriers, and that public authorities must work to try and end social stigmas with full governmental support.
Arco Iris president Sandra Guijas added that the roundabout is an important “sign, a gesture,” and thanked the council for their support. , while COLEGA representative, Antonio Ferre, seemed a little confused as he added that the site is ideal because it is “a place with a lot of traffic, where many people spend the day.”
