Pride flags could not be flown at any facilities operated by the Interior Department or EPA, including the 424 sites owned by the National Park Service, under a spending bill by House Republicans that is set for a committee vote on Wednesday. The bill, which also calls for deep spending cuts for the agencies, would only allow official flags, including U.S. flags, POW/MIA flags, and those that represent a state, tribe, or agency. The measure cleared a subcommittee on a voice vote last week and now heads to the full House Appropriations Committee. While the rider does not specifically mention Pride flags, Maine Rep. Chellie Pingree, the top Democrat on the House Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, said “it’s clear that the intent of this language is to halt the celebration of LGBTQ+ Americans.” If approved by the full Congress, the bill could force Stonewall National Monument, a NPS site in New York dedicated to telling the story of the gay rights movement, to take down its Pride flags. The bill is just the latest in a string of attacks on the Pride flag and a Republican focus on LGBTQ+ issues in Congress and statehouses across the country this year.
