Very soon, San Diego's LGBT community will see a colorful symbol of their pride flying high above the Hillcrest neighborhood.
Today, the City Council voted 7-0 to approve a proposal by the Hillcrest Business Association (HBA) to install a 65-foot flagpole in the median on Normal Street where it intersects with University Avenue.
Nicholas Moade, owner of Rich's and a donor to the flag project, urged the City Council to pass Item 333. "This flag symbolized tolerance and diversity," Moade said. "As long as LGBT youth are being bullied ... it is important to fly this flag as a beacon of hope."
After the council voted, applause erupted in the room. Many community members left excited about the installation of the project, which is expected to be in place in time for the annual San Diego LGBT Pride celebration, taking place July 20-22.

Really? The way you ass clowns tried to bully Manny Pacquiao? Pot meet homo kettle.
Hillcrest was ALWAYS the FAG District of San Diego. Now Obama’s Navy will have a Beacon to go to.
So nice of them to put up a marker to show where that community was when the Big One hits....
Flag burning to ensue.
What a sick world we're living in!
Next to that banner,a cartoon of two dudes fornicating might be a nice touch.
AIDS Avenue WOULD be more appropriate.....
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
Flee from sin. Seek ye the Lord, while He may be found...
What on earth are young mothers supposed to say when they drive by that Gay Pride Flag and their babies ask them what they rainbow flag is all about?
both the mothers will be traumatized by that question and the babies will be shocked when they hear the answer.
Too much therapy will be needed.
"We're here. We're queer; and we're in your face."
If God doesn’t punish America, he should apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.
corner of Sodhom and Gommhoreah
I'd like to ask Moade what flag would he suggest be flown for someone like me, who was bullied in Jr. High and High School, and not a homosexual??? What flag should be flown for kids who are "NORMAL"????
“We’re here. We’re queer; and we’re in your face.”
And, most distressingly:
“The government has our back”.
The "Don't Tread On Me" flag works. :)
Answer: "The rainbow is a creation of God. The rainbow flag symbolizes God's promise not to destroy the Earth by flood"!
Does this work???
