Pride Flags Are Popping Up All Over Mike Pence's New Neighborhood

Christmas is looking a lot gayer for one Washington, DC neighborhood.

So Vice-President elect (and notorious LGBT-haterMike Pence (aka that guy who saw Hamilton) is renting a house in the suburbs of Washington, DC before he officially moves into his new bougie digs at the Naval Observatory.

Well, his new neighbors are welcoming him not with bundt cakes or chocolate chip cookies, but with pride flags!

WLJA reports:

Christmas decorations are popping up left and right, but one street in NW Washington has a different kind of decoration this season—rainbow flags.

“A respectful message showing, in my case, my disagreement with some of his thinking,” said Ilse Heintzen.

The ‘he’ Heintzen is referring to is Vice-President Elect Mike Pence. Pence moved into a house on Heintzen’s block where he will stay on-and-off until he moves into the Vice-President’s mansion on the grounds of the Naval Observatory next year.

Neighbors started hanging the pride flags after the VP-Elect moved in because the LGBTQ community has criticized Pence’s policies regarding LGBTQ rights.

Damn right we are! We are worried about our rights being taken away during these next four years, as almost every appointee thus far to the Trump administration has a record of being anti-LGBT. 

It's nice to see some older (and probably wealthier) allies stand up for our community and show their support for us exactly where it will hit Pence best: home.
