Miami Beach Mayor Stands on Rainbow Flag at Pride

Controversy Erupts Online as Miami Beach Mayor Stands on Pride Flag

South Florida celebrated Miami Beach Pride this past weekend, and when Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber stood on the long Rainbow flag used in the parade for a photo op, it caused a lot of anger on social media. As homophobia runs rampant in Eastern Europe and even parts of the US, stomping or standing on Rainbow flags for photos has become a way to express anger towards the LGBTQ+ community on social media. The president of Pride Fort Lauderdale, Kevin Clevenger commented on the photo, “Why would you stand on this flag for a photo op? This flag is a symbol of our community, cost thousands of dollars and should be treated with respect. If someone was to stand on the American flag, would you be okay with that?”
