Rep. Susan Davis Responds to Lawsuit Filed Against Her for Rainbow Pride Flag Display
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis released the following statement in response to a lawsuit filed against her, and three of her colleagues, for flying an LGBTQ Pride Flag outside her Washington D.C. office.
“As the proud representative of the heart of LGBTQ San Diego, the rainbow flag in front of my DC office is a source of pride for me and my constituents. It is a symbol of our commitment to full equality.
“It is especially offensive to see this type of hateful behavior right after our city celebrated Pride with a record high turnout. It’s disheartening that in this day and age this is still an issue. Be assured that hateful lawsuits are not going to stop me from celebrating our nation’s diversity. If anything, this lawsuit is a reminder of the need for us to work even harder for full equality for all Americans.”
