Rainbow Lifeguard Tower Burned Down to Nothing

The one and only rainbow painted lifeguard tower was burnt to the ground in Long Beach, California last night. Painted by lifeguards during Pride month last year, the tower represented a beach city that is known for being LGBTQ inclusive including having a gay mayor.

Robert Garcia spoke about the incident, claiming “To whoever committed this act, we will rebuild it better and brighter.” Lifeguard towers line the entire beach, yet the one painted as a rainbow was specifically selected to burn. Some might call it an accident, but us homos have endured enough to know this was targeted.

The community has been quite responsive to the news, with residents suggesting, “Paint them ALL Rainbow!!” Now wouldn’t that be a sight and strong message!

The fire is being investigated.
