The billboard was installed by Beirut Pride and according to their website, the installation “starts as a green vertical garden – a clean sleight that symbolizes the potential of our community. As Pride month unfolds, flowers blossom until the billboard reaches full bloom to reveal the rainbow flag alongside the message, ‘Love always blooms’.”

The colored flowers on the billboard were ripped out and the words underneath were torn.

Beirut Pride is a nonprofit that works to raise awareness and progress the rights of the LGBTIQ+ community.

Pride Month is celebrated every June across the world by the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. There are several queer-friendly spots in Lebanon that are open to everyone.
