Several groups in Honolulu are pushing to get a rainbow crosswalk in Waikiki to honor the LGBTQ+ community. Cities such as Phoenix, Seattle, Atlanta, Philadelphia and others already have them, and an effort has been launched in San Antonio, Texas. Members of the LGBTQ+ and Waikiki community on Wednesday crossed the street at the intersection of Kalakaua and Kapahulu avenues in Waikiki. Holding the flag are Rick Ramirez, left, and Richard Knocton.
