Belfast is turning pink for the Giro

In my absence the city's gone a bit pink. The Giro-mania is a welcome diversion from the election poster mania.

Not sure the founding fathers of our great metropolis would be altogether happy with such a girly colour gracing our earnest edifices. I love it.

Proof, yet again, that red, white and blue and green, white and orange are not the only mindsets that exist here. Vive la différence, as we now say in multicultural, accepting of people's sexuality as defined by themselves, open to diversity, free, happy, interesting, creative Belfast. We could be on our way to being world leaders one more time.
