Neighborhood Has Inspiring Reaction to Complaint Over Gay Pride Flag

by | Dec 4, 2016 | Features

Pearlman recently came home to her college town to find an anonymous letter telling her that her gay pride flag made a neighbor feel “deeply troubled.” Pearlman, whose daughter is a lesbian, chose not to take down her flag but instead reached out to her neighbors — who responded by putting up 20 pride flags outside their own homes, Pearlman told Mashable.

“I wanted to explain to you that the flag deeply troubled me in hopes you might understand why … I was troubled by the rainbow flag because it overlooks so many of the things our country represents. The flag is missing the white stripes that represent purity and innocence,” the letter reads.
