    German Car Park Unveils Diversity Spaces Reserved for LGBT Drivers or Migrants



    A car park located in Hanau, Germany, has unveiled dedicated parking spaces reserved for LGBTQ and migrant drivers.

    Hanauer Parkhaus GmbH (HPG) built three diversity parking spaces in an underground car park in Hanau city centre, which will cater only to LGBTQ individuals and migrants.

    Thomas Morlock, the chairman of the supervisory board of HPG and a city councillor, said at the inauguration of the parking spaces that the aim was to help people who feel a special need for protection.

    It is not immediately clear how the authorities intend to monitor whether people who park in the spaces are in fact part of the LGBTQ community or migrants, though HPG said a camera would monitor the car park.

    Morlock went on to say that the spaces were built to set a conspicuously colourful symbol for diversity and tolerance, and are not necessarily meant to be used by a separate group of people.

    Hanau, a small city roughly 15 miles east of Frankfurt, has long been considered a city of diversity in Germany and its population was already ethnically diverse before the migrant crisis in 2015.

    According to Germanys Federal Statistical Office, there were 1.8 million people with a refugee background in Germany by 2018.

    On February 19 2020, a extreme-right gunman took to the streets of Hanau and opened fire on two shisha lounges in the city centre, killing 11 people nine of whom had ethnic roots outside of Germany and wounding five others.

    Typical of the mindset today, the so-called artists or thinkers prefer to be concerned about LGBTQ safety, but turn a blind eye to seniors and mothers with children who try to navigate through busy parking garages or parking lots. Try to guide 3-4 children in a dingy narrow parking garage without being nervous, good luck. These people are really out of touch or ran out of ideas for creativity!
