No Pride Flag On Space Needle This Year

Last year was the first year that the Space Needle (which is privately owned) flew a Pride Flag in support of LGBTs during June.  Looks like it might actually be the last, as well.

Via the Slog:

"I just found out the Space Needle has not committed to raising the Pride flag again this year for Pride weekend. Josh Castle started this petition on to gently remind them how important that gesture was to the community last year.

"I just signed the petition "Space Needle: Please Raise the Pride Flag for Seattle Pride Weekend" and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name. Our goal is to reach 1,000 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here."

It's a disappointment.  I really enjoyed looking out my window and seeing shit all gayed up in Seattle last year.
