The White Horse Bar is America's oldest gay bar in America.
It's located in the City of Oakland at 66th and Telegraph in the Upper Telegraph area, near the Oakland / Berkeley border.
Friends of Upper Telegraph, with help and general support from the Oakland Mayor's Office, District 1 Office, Temescal - Telegraph BID, White Horse Inn, and various community members, respectfully request your general support for the idea of designing, fundraising, and installing Rainbow Crosswalks at the intersections of 66th and Telegraph to honor the signifigance of the White Horse Bar, the oldest gay bar in America.
It will also be recognized as a friendly and colorful gateway to Oakland and a destination spot for Upper Telegraph, Oakland.
As a lot of people know, Rainbow crosswalks have been installed in cities from coast to coast to acknowledge and support their LGBT citizens and Cultural Diversity. It is only fitting that the intersection of 66th and Telegraph bear a similar commemoration as the White Horse Inn is a signifigant historical mark for the LGBT community and is a gateway to the City of Oakland, the most diverse city in America.
Rainbow crosswalks have generated buzz in communities across the country — and plenty of Instagram pictures. And now is the time to bring that awareness to Oakland, The White Horse inn, and 66th and Telegraph.
Please sign this petition in order to build at large community support for this location and support the elected officials and community members who are on board with this.
Thank You for your time and consideration.
