In a unanimous vote, the San Antonio City Council voted to accept $19,832 in donations from the LGBT community and its allies to help defray the cost of installing a rainbow crosswalk at the corner of Main and Evergreen in the heart of San Antonio’s LGBT business district.
The donations were presented to the City Council by officials from Pride San Antonio.
The vote clears the way for the city’s Transportation and Capital Improvements Department to begin the installation of the crosswalk on June 23, just ahead of the Pride Bigger Than Texas Parade on June 30.
There will be nine awards totaling $7,500! Six scholarships awarded at $1000 each and three stipends awarded at $500 each.

The 2018 Houston area event will occur on Sunday, April 15th, near Rice University. Details including location and times TBD. Check March event page.
