Pence neighbors in Aspen hang 'Make America Gay Again' banner

Vice President Mike Pence's neighbors hung a rainbow-colored "Make America Gay Again" banner next to the mansion where he is staying in Aspen.

Initially, the man was nervous about placing the banner because of Pence's security detail, which he assumed wouldn't allow him to do it.

He said the man and other neighbours have been "really nice" to authorities.

Vice President Mike Pence speaks at the Focus on the Family 40 year anniversary event, on Friday, June 23, 2017.

The "Make America Gay Again" banner was placed there by the daughters of the couple who live in the house as well as one of the daughters' girlfriend, the daughter's girlfriend told The Aspen Times. He added that Secret Service agents were not fazed by the sign. Pence also as a history of opposing the LGBT community.

Powerball and Mega Millions Both Have $300 Million Jackpots Right Now
California resident Jeff Lindsay claimed the winning Powerball ticket June 10 and received an annuity of $447.8 million. Powerball's jackpot is now at an estimated $384 million after no victor was crowned on Wednesday.

In November 2016, residents of a northwest Washington, D.C. street greeted the then-vice-president-elect with rainbow-coloured flags when he briefly moved into their block. During a House floor speech, he cited a report that said "societal collapse was always brought about following an advent of the deterioration of marriage and family", according to the report.

Pence has notoriously supported legislation that critics say discriminates against gay people.

The neighbor's action is not the first time LGBT supporters have protested Pence, who describes himself as "a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order". The national uproar over the divisive bill, called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, prompted IN legislators to modify it by adding anti-discrimination protections.

Pence has also fought to defund programs that help prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS and instead use government money to "change the sexual behavior" of LGBT people, a comment widely interpreted to mean paying for gay conversion therapy.
