Vienna: Are you straight? Yes!! This traffic signal is not for you then. Well this not mockery. Its news! Traffic pedestrian light in Vienna will be depicting straight, gay and lesbian couples as the city prepares to host a series of events linked to themes of tolerance – including the Eurovision Song Contest, won in 2014 by the cross-dressing Austrian singer Conchita Wurst.
The unusual lights show different images of human beings in different positions. The lights are being erected at 47 crossings and will stay up until June. Vienna hosts several events linked to tolerance during that time, including the Life Ball, Europe’s biggest charity event for Aids and HIV research, and the Eurovision Song Contest.
