At its meeting last Tuesday, the Dublin City Council voted unanimously to fly the rainbow flag for 30 days in recognition of LGBTQ pride month, which began June 1st. In a show of support, the council hoisted the flag immediately after the vote was taken. On Tuesday, the council reversed its previous May 21st decision, when it voted 3-2 against flying the flag. The majority stated that they needed to adopt a flag policy first.

In social media posts and news reports, citizens criticized the hatred expressed at the May 21st council meeting by those who disparaged members of the LGBTQ community. In protest, the citizens called for a boycott of Dublin businesses, a petition to raise the flag at City Hall, and a campaign to fly flags at their homes.
