The Trump administration was none too pleased, apparently, that the Rainbow flag, an international symbol of the LGBT community’s fight for equality, would be flying over a National Monument and federal lands. The National Park Service (NPS), which had originally approved and sponsored a ceremony to be held tomorrow at New York City’s Stonewall National Monument to dedicate the Rainbow flag, has suddenly withdrawn. The event, however, will go on as LGBT activists cite Trump administration homophobia for the last-minute change in plans. They say the withdrawal of support is part of the Trump Administration’s growing hostility toward LGBT rights at the federal level.
