I am in favor of raising the Pride flag.
Please let’s not look like old fashioned fuddy-duddies to our young people. (See what I did there 😉
“Be the Change”, as they say.
The constitutional issue seems favorable, a policy is fine, but how about codifying one after June? And I actually agree with Suki, you can un-couple that issue from the questions we have for outside counsel.
And you don’t need to address this now, but is there really a big chance of a request for hateful speech depicted on a flag being requested to fly with the American flag? Nazi sympathizers? Confederate flag lovers?
I do understand we don’t want to repeat the Drag Queen scenario, but the protest against that story hour led to a great deal of more acceptable programming.
Sometimes you have to go overboard in order to back up a little and get it right- what is that definition of compromise? I know you know it!!
Thank you all for your service and for having the very best intentions,
