Woman Responds To Anti-Gay Complaints w/ Gay Pride Christmas Lights Display

Dr. Mary Pham, a single straight mom in Irvine, California and an LGBT ally, has already received complaints from neighbors for her proud display of the rainbow flag. 

Well, the doctor upped the ante this Christmas when she decked her whole house out in rainbow colored lights!

According to SheWired:

Pham raised her pride flag last spring as her neighbors were raising seasonal and sports flags. A friend had warned her against the rainbow flag saying, “Not in Irvine, Mary,” but Pham hung her flag despite the protestation, according to our friends at the Pleasure Chest.

“Look, either you know what it is or you don’t,” Pham said in response. “Either it’s a pride flag, or it’s just a rainbow flag. And if it’s a pride flag, and you notice, either you like it or you hate it. And if you hate it then you’re just a jerk.”

That's the spirit, Mary!

I think it is very pretty. It doesn't matter what you think it means I think it is very pretty. I would love to see it in person  :-)

Anyone know where in Irvine this is? I grew up here and am home for Christmas, would love to go see the house! I'm sure it looks amazing!!!

Awesome...just awesome !!  :-)

Thank you for your love and support Mary !

Well done. I love it. More people like this. We're all thaseim. My respect.:-)♥

Pace is Italian for Peace. 

Very awesome!!!! Great job

Way to go 

Way to go! 

Good for Mary. Who do these neighbours think they are telling Mary what she can and cannot do with her house? She hung a pride flag on her own property. What are the neighbours gonna do about it?

Actually in Europe this flag with PACE (or peace) isn't really considered a gay flag, but a Peace flag.  The neighbors gots it all wrong.  Egg them on Mary!

Pace on Earth.
