The World's Gayest Monuments

Wizard of Oz Rainbow
Culver City, Calif.
A rainbow in honor of The Wizard of Oz. Someone over at the Sony Pictures Lot is a friend of Dorothy.

 

Phallic Rock
Molokai, Hawaii
Mother Nature, you dirty girl. Like doodles from our high school notebook, she went and created a rock shaped like, well, a penis. A really big penis. (Photograph by Flickr user mikenan1)

 

Little Mermaid Statue
Copenhagen, Denmark
It’s not Ariel, but this topless beauty in the Copenhagen harbor honors homo Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale and had us cruising the crowd for our own Prince Eric. (Photograph by Flickr user celesteh)

 

Homomonument
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
“A tribute to gay men and women who have been subjected to persecution of their homosexuality.” We love the Dutch. (Photograph by Flickr user joethelion)


Hercules and Cacus Statue
Florence, Italy
Cacus can’t keep his eyes off that club.

 

The Andy Monument
New York City
A shiny Andy Warhol carrying a Barney’s shopping bag. Just our style. (Photograph by Flickr user nycstreets)

 

Kafka Museum Pissing Fountains
Prague, Czech Republic
What could possibly top this somewhat raunchy fountain of two guys peeing in the same pool? The penises actually move up and down. Watch for splashback! (Photograph by Flickr user asirap)

 

Obelisks
Worldwide
Apparently history gets excited when it comes to commemorating just about anything, anywhere.


Military Instruction
Washington, D.C.
Be careful with that sword!

 

Evita Portrait
Buenos Aires, Argentina
An Eva Perón pilgrimage is a right of passage, especially when it involves a 93-foot-high LED-illuminated portait on the south face of the former Ministry of Public Works. (Photography by Flickr user srikanth_jandy)

 


Gay and Lesbian Holocaust Memorial

Sydney, Australia
A standout tribute to gay and lesbian victims of the Holocaust, smack in the heart of Sydney’s Oxford Street gayborhood. (Photography by Flickr user hopeless128)

 


Forever Marilyn

Palm Springs, Calif.
That pose. Those legs. That billowing skirt. We had to peak. And yep, definitely still gay. (Photograph by Flickr user victoriabernal)

 


Homage to Leonardo

Belgrave Square, London (Photograph by Flickr user wallby)
So DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man, how did you get those abs?
