This Small Town Is Fighting Over the Usage of Pride Flags 

 

For the past two years, rainbow banners had flown from lampposts on Main Street in the city of Heber, Utah, in celebration of Pride month. But when some residents complained that Pride and LGBTQ+ rights were political and did not represent the values or beliefs of the community, Yahoo News reports the city passed a new ordinance in August raising the costs and generally making it more difficult to continue the practice.

“It has pretty much eliminated the option of private citizens funding banners and requesting them to be hung on Main Street, unless they are able to get sponsorship from the city, the county or the chamber, and that sponsorship means some financial sponsorship,” Kelleen Potter, the mayor of Heber City and mother of two LGBTQ+ teens, explained.

The new ordinance requires any event or message promoted on the banners must be nonpolitical and not for profit. Additionally, banner applicants must first obtain sponsorship from the city of Heber, Wasatch County, or the Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce before their application will be considered by the city. In the past, residents could apply to hang banners from the city’s lampposts for a few hundred dollars as long as they were noncommercial in nature.

“As a Christian, our family believes that marriage is between a man and a woman,” one woman is quoted as saying, while others claimed the flag and, by extension, LGBTQ+ rights, were political. Potter claimed she began receiving inquiries wondering if the previous banner policy allowed banners with other allegedly similarly political messages protesting abortion or pornography or featuring symbols associated with the Ku Klux Klan or Nazis.

City Bans All Flags Over Pride Flag Debate 

 

A city in North Dakota has temporarily banned all flags displayed in front of city hall following strong objections to a recent request to fly the Pride flag. KFYR TV is reporting the city council of Minot voted to suspend flying all non-official flags in front of city hall until they develop a new policy regarding the issue.

The issue began when Magic City Equality, an LGBTQ+ group in Minot, requested to fly a rainbow flag in front of city hall in honor of Pride Week. The city has flown other non-official flags in the past without objections. The NRA had been scheduled to fly their flag in front of city hall prior to the council’s decision.

Some residents strongly objected to Magic City Equality’s request at a city council meeting earlier this month, claiming the Pride flag didn’t represent their community and shouldn’t be flown alongside the American flag. City Councilmember Carrie Evans famously went off in an epic take down of one homophobic constituent who had rudely objected at the meeting.

“If you’re not aware, and I think a lot of people in this room are not aware and have come here just because this was a ‘gay issue,’” Evans explainef. “I am proudly the first openly elected lesbian in North Dakota, so that is why I'm not paying any heed to your crap.”

Pride Banners Incite Furor in Utah Town and Are Effectively Banned 

 

The City Council in Heber City, Utah, has approved limitations on what banners can be hung on city-owned light and street posts after receiving complaints about LGBTQ+ Pride flags.

People in and around the town of 16,000 have called the flags “odd,” “political,” and “disturbing,” The Salt Lake Tribune reports, and wondered if allowing Pride flags would mean the city would have to allow Nazi or Confederate flags — which no one has tried to display. The outcry led the council to consider the ordinance, which it adopted unanimously Tuesday.

City Council member Mike Johnston said he did not object to Pride flags but worried they would draw an “ugly response.” “That’s what really bothers me,” he said. “We don’t actually have a way to prevent the ugliness.”

Passenger who squeezed flight attendant’s butt & called him “gay boy” gets sent to prison 

 

An unruly passenger was just sentenced to six months in prison for the sexual assault of a male flight attendant.

The passenger, Gavin Capps, was flying with EasyJet from Manchester, U.K., to Iceland for work this past January, when he attacked the flight attendant.

Capps had three beers on the flight and went to the front of the plane to get more, but he was sent back and told to wait for the in-flight service. When the duty-free trolley came down the aisle, Capps took 400 cigarettes from it and hid them under his seat.

Flight attendants warned him to stop causing trouble, but then he attacked.

Boston — which has raised LGBT flag at City Hall — doesn't have to raise Christian flag, judge rules 

 

A judge ruled that the city of Boston — which has raised an LGBT flag at City Hall Plaza — isn't required to raise a Christian flag as requested by a religious group, the Boston Herald reported.

What are the details?

U.S. District Court Judge Denise Casper on Tuesday denied a summary judgment for Harold Shurtleff and his Camp Constitution organization that claimed discrimination in a lawsuit after the city rejected their request to fly a Christian flag on a City Hall flagpole, the paper said.

While the city has maintained that flying a Christian flag would be akin to favoring a particular religion, Camp Constitution's 2019 federal complaint stated that Boston several times has flown the Turkish flag — which has Islamic symbolism — as well as the Vatican flag.
