They Keep Vandalizing Their Rainbow Flag But They Keep Putting One Back Up




This is the type of attitude of some in the gay community that said enough! We went in strike walks starting writing and saying no more. In NYS We got Same-Sex Marriage before The nation did and no one tells me that was not in the mind of the justices when they approved it. With NY there were others and other nations. People will abuse you until you stay firm and make sure it's not worthwhile to keep doing the impossible. If this was UTAH in NYS these punks would be behind bars already for a hate crime.  Adam

Orem couple vows to continue pro-LGBT message after vandalism: ‘I want a billboard’ (KUTV)



OREM, Utah (KUTV) — A vandal struck Brenda and Thomas’ Orem home for the sixth time in less than a year last week, and yet the couple is undeterred.

The latest incident involved a man cutting up a “No Sides, Only Love” banner that was hung from the family’s fence.


“I was angry and I kind of just went really? Really? Why? And then I got sad,” said Brenda, who asked that her last name not be used.

Brenda called 2News in June when five times a pride flag was stolen from their yard.

“It’s very persistent, a very persistent problem,” she said.

Brenda’s zeal as an LGBTQ advocate stems from having family in that community. She uses the fence in her front yard as a billboard because of the large number of Timpanogos High School students who walk past it every day.

“It’s a tough time anyway being 15 years old,” she said. “I can only imagine what it’s like not to be able to be who you really are in front of your peers and your teachers, your loved ones.”

The surveillance footage is not terribly helpful when it comes to identifying the suspect, but Brenda said she mostly just feels sorry for them.

“I wonder how often he has not felt accepted himself to be able to hate other people he doesn’t know,” she said.

After the latest incident, Brenda and Thomas began a fundraiser with the LGBT advocacy organization Encircle to book a billboard campaign with the ‘No Sides, Only Love’ campaign.
