Bigots In Richmond, CA Don't Want No Gay Pride Flag

Anti-gay bigots in Richmond, CA are outraged that a rainbow flag is soaring above the community's City Hall in honor of LGBT Pride month, and have attempted to have the flag lowered. 

But the city isn't budging. 

According to the Contra Costa Times, mass emails generated from low level city employees asked that the flag be taken down. Richmond is not "the Castro," wrote one anti-gay resident. Despite the outcries, City Manager Bill Lindsay has insisted that the Pride flag will remain and that no punishments against city workers who broke the rules by issuing mass emails will be given.
