Letter: Kamloops church proud to fly the Pride flag

We are grateful for such wide support of Pride in the community

The Hills of Peace Lutheran Church flew the Pride flag before someone tore it down just before Pride Week began on Aug. 22.

Editor:

It was great to see activities return for Pride Week last week, including the Aug. 28 Pride Parade.

We have been sharing our church community’s support of 2SLGBTQIA+ folx by proudly hanging a flag from our church since the start of Pride Month in June, just like several other Christian churches in Kamloops.

We were looking forward to continuing our community support of Kamloops Pride with the flag waving all last week.

However, our flag was torn down in the night just ahead of Pride Week.

While we are saddened by this act of vandalism, we are grateful for such wide support of Pride in the community.

Happy Pride, everyone. You are so well loved.
