The discussion to fly the LGBTQI rainbow Pride flag over a Victorian regional shire headquarters turned ugly recently when a  councillor compared it to a Nazi symbol. The Gannawarra Shire Council up in northern Victoria was one of eight local councils that was yet to respond to a petition by Victorian Pride Lobby as to whether they would fly the pride flag next year on International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT). Yarran Ward Councillor Garner Smith called the petition “a political minefield” and moved an amendment to the motion, saying that the petition wasn’t “worth it.” “Twenty-nine people could come up and say we should use the Nazi flag,” he said as reported by ABC.
