This Is America: Couple FINED For Flying Small Pride Flag Under Mailbox

A gay couple have had a fine issued to them after flying a Pride flag on their letterbox, reports LADbible.

Bob Plominski and Mike Ferarri hung the flag outside their home in the city of Oakland Park in Florida on 1 June, wanting to honour Pride Month.

But the couple’s rainbow flag drew the wrong kind of attention when locals told them to remove it by 15 June, or they could have a $50 daily fine.

The Eastland Cove Homeowners Association (HOA) sent a citation to the couple, who are now refusing to remove the flag.

The couple say they have flown other flags in the past, including political ones, saying they’ve never received a complaint before, but now they feel it’s unfair to single them out for the Pride flag.
