LGBT-Theme 'All Black Lives Matter' Wall To Be Hollywood Boulevard Permanent

The LA Office of Public Services blocks part of Hollywood Boulevard, installing a new LGBT mural on the theme of Black Lives Matter.

Originally made in June with temporary materials, the giant mural was not meant to last, but some people protested when crews tried to erase it …

Now the slogan is eternal with the colors of the LGBT rainbow, “All Black Lives Matter.”

Breitbart reports: “Today we create the first memorialized Los Angeles place for vibrant transgender people after years of brutality against our Black and queer communities,” said O’Farrell when he announced it. “As the site of the nation’s first national Gay Pride Parade, Hollywood will and must be the safe space named for this historic distinction.”

When the work is to be done, it is appropriate to close a portion of the street Monday through Friday. This was the product of collaborations with Democratic Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, Los Angeles Transit Department, Black LGBTQ+ Change Activists and local community activists.

The wall is a more or less permanent replica of an art created in June when hundreds of volunteers painted the words “ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER” between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive, a joint Black Lives Matter and LGBT march.

“I was incredibly emotional as a Black transman when I placed the ‘All Black Lives Matter’ memorial sign on Hollywood Boulevard,” says Luckie Alexander, the mural artist. “It is something that makes our Black LGBTQ+ group, in particular our Black trans siblings, aware that they are noticed, respected and supported.”

This is only one of the thousands of measures that the Black Lives Matter demonstrations sparked by George Floyd ‘s death have put on towns, neighbourhoods and organisations. In the meantime, leaders of the movement continue to be violent throughout the country, particularly in the city of Portland, where civil unrest and violence have been occurring for the last three months.

“Enterprises are leaving,’ Portland Business Alliance CEO told KATU that Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters caused “irreparable harm.”
