SoMa 501 is raising money to add a Pride-themed crosswalk to the South Main neighborhood. The nonprofit organization has started a GoFundMe page for the rainbow path, which will be installed at the intersection of 12th and Main Streets between Community Bakery and Rock Town Distillery.
Donations of $50 or more will score you a ticket to the SoMardi Gras Bash on Feb. 9, a night of food, drinks and entertainment leading up to the 14th annual SoMardi Gras Parade and block party the next day. If you donate $100 or more, you’ll also receive a T-shirt, made by Electric Ghost/AR-T’s.
“Your contribution is not just an investment in a crosswalk; it’s a statement of support for a community that values inclusivity and embraces diversity,” reads the GoFundMe description. “Let’s make SoMa’s streets as colorful as its spirit!”
