ANZ Bank (Australia) has commissioned artists to turn its drab bank machines into 'GAYTMs'.

The bejeweled, colorful and LGBTQ-inspired machines are to be featured at the Sydney's world famous Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. ANZ -- an official partner of the festival -- decorated each GAYTM to tell a unique story of pride.

The ‘Sailor’ GAYTM, decorated in nautical signage, salutes the Defence Force for allowing its members to march in uniform in the Mardi Gras for the second year in a row. Another GAYTM, 'Pride', reflects the true symbol of gay pride and diversity: the rainbow flag.

In addition to looking fabulous on the exterior, ANZ machines carry screen messages upon withdrawal reading things such as "Hello Gorgeous" and print receipts stating "Cash out and proud."

ANZ will donate their GAYTM operating fees from during the festival to a non-profit organization that supports individuals and families dealing with sexuality and gender issues called, Twenty10.
