"Relentlessly gay" yard to get even gayer

Fri 19 Jun 2015 In: International News View at Wayback

An American woman is fundraising to add even more rainbows to her front yard after a neighbour complained about her “relentlessly gay” lighting display. Baltimore’s Julie Baker received a note from a neighbour which read “Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighbourhood ask that you Tone it Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be forced to call the police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD." It was over a set of rainbow solar lights she’d hung in her yard. “Needless to say... I need more rainbows... Many, many more rainbows….” she says on a Go Fund Me page. “If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof! Because my invisible relentlessly gay rainbow dragon should live up there in style!” Baker says she will not relent to hatred. “Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!” She has already raised more than US$25,000.
