Drumheller has finally seen the installation of its first pride crosswalk.
The crosswalk, which features the rainbow pride flag colours, is a momentous step for the LGBTQ+ community in Drumheller.
President of the Drumheller Pride Association, Brandon Frasso, spearheaded the project and is excited to finally see it come to life.
"You know, It's great that the community of Drumheller can come together. This is definitely for the history books of Drumheller," enthused Frasso.
The association raised over $1,200 for paint and other supplies and had the space donated by the town.
"We came together and today we are celebrating equality, diversity and love. Hopefully all the kids out there, they see this and they see this as a step toward the future and that Drumheller is a safe place for the LGBTQ community," continued Frasso.
The crosswalk depicts the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple, which represent life, healing, sunlight, nature, harmony and spirit.
"All towns are made up of different types of people and let's celebrate that. The diversity that we have in our town, lets celebrate all the different communities in different ways, and this is a great way of representing this community," praised Communications Officer for the Town of Drumheller Julia Fielding.
The crosswalk can be seen between the Napier Theatre and the Emporium at the intersection of Center Street and 3 Avenue West.
