Gay Pride Gadsden Flags Plastered in West Hollywood


Following the recent events in Orlando, a community responded by plastering Gay Pride Gadsden Flags all over West Hollywood.

On the morning of Wednesday, June 15th, wheat paste posters with a rainbow colored background synonymous with gay pride parade flags appeared all over West Hollywood with the hashtag #ShootBack as a response to the mass shooting that took place in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

The wheat paste graffiti posters that likely went up overnight have caught the attention of local and national news, triggering a trend on social media delivering a message from the gay community of "Don't tread on me."

The creative design has quickly spawned a market for eBay sellers looking to capitalize off the trend as well.

With the politicization of gun control and around the clock mainstream media coverage, this display of solidarity and a call to arms from West Hollywood's gay community is a somewhat surprising and bold statement contrary to the stereotype of pacifism associated with the culture.
