Australian ATMs Go Gay For Mardi Gras

gaytmOh, sure, you can get your cash out of a plain old ATM, like a straight person. Or you can deplete your checking account at a GAYTM.

Australian bank ANZ has converted a couple of ATMs into rainbow-festooned, pink-animal-print eyesores to celebrate Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. And although they are truly hideous, we certainly appreciate the gesture. And they’re donating a bunch of ATM fees to the organization Twenty10, which provides support services to LGBTs, so now we just feel like jerks for pointing out how garish the designs are.

Really, though, they are super-gaudy. But that’s sort of the look of Mardi Gras, so what are you going to do?

Check out the video below, and also the GAYTM site which is literally exploding with rainbows and unicorns. And if you’re a gay who appreciates simple, streamlined design, maybe just skip the whole thing and cuddle up with a Taschen book.
