Gay Pride month started by burning of rainbow flag and finished the same way
New-York - Twice in one month, a rainbow flag was burned in front of the gay bar doors. According to Alexi Minko, owner of the Alibi Lounge gay bar, the flag was set on fire early on Monday, so that no one sees what they did, and the first “anti-gay” protest was seen on May 31 around midnight, just in one day before the start of gay pride. The police are already conducting an investigation on the basis of bias towards the gay community and to prevent possible more aggressive protests.
"I have to say that what I find odd was the timing of both events," Minko said. "One was at the beginning of Pride and one was right at the end. One has to wonder if there's a kind of message they're trying to send."
After the second manifestation of hatred towards gays in the form of burning flags, Alexi Minko decided to remove the flags and other gay-attributes from the entrance of his bar, in order not to provoke criminals.
It is known that there are no casualties and the police are looking for a possible link between the two incidents.
