Same-sex traffic lights

MADRID has installed almost 300 same-sex traffic lights ahead of pride festival.
Installed on pedestrians crossings, the lights show same or different-sex couples holding hands, and will remain in the city after the festival.

The capital hosts World Pride on June 23, and is expected to draw almost 3 million people to the streets of Chueca, a popular gay neighbourhood.

Spain was the third country in the world to recognise the right of same-sex couples to marry in 2005, and held its first gay pride event in 1977.
