It is a very fitting way to honor this great American poet, who was also gay.

While a rainbow-esque Lego-look paint scheme would make the point, an adaptive, evolving night lighting installation (e.g., red/white/blue on national holidays and green/white for Eagles home games, etc.) would be uber-inclusive. #JustSayin'

Whitman’s true self has for too long been unknown to Philadelphia/Camden and the world at large!

Walt Whitman was fabulous and Philly should be proud of its historic LGBTQ heritage!

I am all for the light projection option as the more elegant application. Painting, not so much.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm signing because Walt would love it and it would send a great message, like his poetry.

Thanks for adding your voice.

This is a great idea. Whitman would have loved it. Let's really honor our literary and philosophical heroes with authenticity.
