A rainbow pride flag was removed from a religious centre at the campus of Virginia Tech university and replaced with confederate flags, an incident that has left LGBT+ students in fear and shock. The incident took place at Wesley Centre, a Methodist campus ministry inside the university in the state of Virginia. The pride flag was town down in what was said to be an “ongoing issue”, the ministry said in a social media post. Flags from the centre have been stolen earlier as well, at least thrice in two weeks, reported NBC News. This time, however, the pride flags that have been put up outside the centre for the past four years were taken down and replaced with “hateful Confederate flags”, the centre said in a Facebook post on Saturday.
