Whelp, Greenwich Village will be getting a new monument in 2021.
A Trans Monument to be exact.
Boy, they’ll erect a monument to anything, won’t they?
You know, on second thought, maybe “erect” is the wrong verb here.
It was going to have a great big obelisk sticking up in the center, but they decided to cut it off. https://t.co/yuMwA77gN3— Dianny 🇺🇸(@DiannyRants) May 31, 2019
From the Guardian:
This new monument, which will cost $750,000, will be in the heart of Greenwich Village, in the Ruth Wittenberg Triangle, a small triangular patch on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Greenwich Avenue. It will be close to the artist George Segal’s 1992 gay monument of two life-sized couples in Christopher Park, as well as the LGBT memorialdesigned by Anthony Goicolea in Hudson River Park, memorializing the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting in 2016, where nine boulders each have a prism of a rainbow.
Did anybody else trip up on the phrase “small triangular patch” or was it just me?
Well, I hope they know what they’re doing. Because I’m guessing a year after it goes up, this monument will decide to identify as a fire hydrant.
Any old how.
Though the design has yet to be unveiled, it will raise awareness to trans visibility.
Yes, because we’re completely unaware of transsexuals.
Heaven knows without this monument, we wouldn’t even know these guys exist.
Who am I kidding?
The truth is if aliens landed in the US today, they’d think the entire population was transsexual given how much we bang on about them.
Well, I don’t know if they’ve settled on a design yet, but I thought I’d toss out a suggestion.
