Originally introduced during th song festival last year, Vienna now has gay-themed traffic lights around the city. These new traffic lights, picturing same-sex couples holding hands and love-hearts were such a hit that officials decided to make them permanent.
They even make t-shirts with the same theme, but they sell out very quickly. Other cities in Austria and the rest of Europe, including Munich, Hamburg and Frankfurt and Linz have since adopted the idea of gay-themed traffic lights as a symbol of tolerance and equality. But the scheme has not been without controversy. Spotted in Lonely planet
