Torched Flag

From The Center:

On the morning of April 14, 2010 the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center staff arrived to find a torched rainbow flag draped on the front of our building. This act of hate must not be tolerated! Actions like this are menacing to our community and, if not addressed, can lead to an environment that allows more heinous acts, such as verbal attacks, property damage and physical violence. Showing our solidarity now will empower our community and send a message to the public that we will not be intimidated or threatened.

In response, the Center, Speaker Quinn, and the creator of our Rainbow Flag, among others, partnered to drape The Center in a 20-foot flag. More at their website.
