Every one of our embassies across the world is authorized to fly the Pride flag. Are you going to continue to tell Rye taxpayers you need to spend our money on an outside law firm just to make sure?
Again, according to Kristen Browde (Co-Chair of the National Trans Bar Association) “Wow. That is an absurd argument.”

As a 27 year Rye resident, and as Group Leader of the Indivisible Westchester Legislative Districts 6&7, I ask the Rye City Council to fly the Gay Pride flag on the Village Green during the Pride Month (June). Our group stands with the Rye HS GSA, asking for the 2nd year in a row, that Rye visibly demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion, by allowing the Gay Pride flag to fly on our flagpole.
