Forget Fifty Shades of Grey, 50 Cakes of Gay is what's important in the U.S. at the moment.

Located in the alley parallel to Santa Monica Boulevard behind gay bars like Eleven and Trunks in West Hollywood, the celebratory artwork is by French female street artist Kashink and Erik Burke aka OverUnder.
With 17 states in america now recognizing same-sex marriages and more imminent, hopefully it won't be long before there are '50 states of gay', but there's still a war against bigotry and inequality yet to be won, both in the U.S. and all around the world.
With atrocities being committed on a daily basis in countries such as Uganda and Russia, and discrimination, bullying and gay rights being ignored closer to home, there's still reason to wave those rainbow pride flags and celebrate equality victories along the way to true freedom.

Let's hope gay partners in U.S. states like Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Texas, Michigan and the rest will soon enjoy the same marriage rights and be able to celebrate with cakes of their own in the future...
