Rainbow, it’s the new black!

As a kick off of Pride Week here in Sarasota, activists draped a mile-long rainbow flag across the John Ringling Causeway on a windy Sunday afternoon to draw attention to the LGBT community and to spread a  message of equality and unity.  It took about an hour to unfurl and pull it up across the peak of the span and then another 30 minute wait for the helicopter that was hired for aerial shots to show up.

Photos were taken, honks, waves and shouts of support from passing motorists were appreciated and good time were had by pretty much everyone in attendance.  Well, except for the people that had to roll it back up!
