DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - An Oak Lawn intersection now has a rainbow crosswalk at Oak Lawn Avenue and Cedar Springs Road in the heart of the Dallas gay community.

This is one of ten such crosswalks planned for Oak Lawn. The funding comes from the Cedar Springs Merchants Association and the North Texas LGBT Chamber of Commerce Foundation - along with private contributions and donations from community and business leaders.

On Facebook, Dallas City councilman Adam Medrano posted the following: "as chair of the LGBT task force, one of the things I heard over the last seven years was that our community needed representation, a symbol that would let you know you are in the City of Dallas LGBT community."
