Two rainbow flags were set ablaze outside a New York City LGBTQ bar just as Pride Month festivities were set to get underway, police told NBC New York. It happened just after midnight Friday on the eve of June’s Pride Month, which started Saturday, police said. The venue, Alibi Lounge in Harlem, bills itself as the only black-owned LGBTQ lounge in the city. Owner Alexi Minko said he stomped the flags with his feet as pouring rain helped douse the fires. No one was injured.n Community members held a rally Saturday afternoon to support the bar, he said. “Our neighbors have expressed their indignation, their support, Minko said. “The gay community is behind us.”
