North Dakota city council member comes out as a lesbian during heated pride flag debate

A lesbian elected official in North Dakota delivered an impassioned speech in defense of her municipality's decision to fly a rainbow flag outside City Hall. Her heated remarks followed several bigoted comments from townspeople angered over the LGBTQ pride symbol's public display.

"I am proudly the first openly elected lesbian in North Dakota, so that is why I'm not paying any heed to your crap," Evans said Sept. 8 at a City Council meeting in Minot, which went viral after it was posted online. "I live in Minot. I am a taxpayer. I am a person. I get to see myself represented on that flagpole.

"This city is big enough for all of us. Me having a flag flying doesn't take away anything from your rights and freedoms," Evans continued. "I'm sorry it doesn't make you feel comfortable, but we're here, we're queer, and we're not going away."

Awesome, but she didn't really 'come out' now did she? She's a great human and gave that bigot the thrashing he deserved.

Totally inappropriate for an elected official.

This has become a de facto religious symbol, like the cross or the Islamic crescent. That’s why flying it at government buildings is inappropriate.

Defacto the self loathing fag that compares being gay to being in a religion still loves watching TWINKS in RAINBOW SOCKS get FISTED on pornhub you had better believe it!

R7 no I didn’t compare being gay to being a religion, though the new woke religion has made being gay less fun.

R8 liked being the Forbidden Fruit.

R9 I think that is part of it, yes.

The American flag has become the defacto symbol of Christianity in America by Christian fundies.

Her message was good but the delivery was terrible.

“I am proudly the first openly elected lesbian in North Dakota” - as opposed to being secretly elected?

by Anonymousreply 1309/15/2020

If she was elected as a lesbian, how is this her coming out?

by Anonymousreply 1409/15/2020

I'm proud of her. It's nice to see someone come out as either gay or lesbian nowadays, it feels like it's been forever. Everyone's either "unlabeled", bisexual, or something in relation to gender. Seeing someone come out as one of the sane identities is a refreshing break from all the crazy.

If they were bold enough to use gay slurs, they ought to be able to handle the word "crap". We shouldn't be concerned for their "sensibilities". #Team Councilwoman Evans.

That harsh lighting is not doing her any favors!

The NBC vid wouldn't play for me, so below is another link. Some better commentary than what's in this thread as well.

Then it can join the American Flag and the pledge of allegiance which are considered religious to a large majority of America
