The huge, LGBT-inclusive ‘All Black Lives Matter’ installation on Hollywood Boulevard is being made permanent to commemorate the history-making march in Los Angeles. Tens of thousands of people joined the march on June 14 to protest the brutal murders of two Black trans women, Dominique “Rem’Mie” Fells, 27, and Riah Milton, 25. The block-long message between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive was completed the day before with the help of hundreds of volunteers, who painted the powerful words in the colours of the transgender, non-binary and LGBT+ Pride flags. The iconic street will now be closed for a week to restore the paint and make it a permanent street art fixture dedicated to the Black LGBT+ community.
