YPSILANTI – The LGBT Resource Center at Eastern Michigan University found its Pride flag installation vandalized just days after the center held its annual flag day outside of the Pray-Harrold School of Arts and Sciences.
According to EMU spokesman Geoff Larcom, the flags were damaged the morning of Oct. 13.
“This is being investigated as a larceny of about 80 of the flags,” Larcom told MLive. “No indication of a hate crime.”
The flags were planted as part of the school’s annual OUTober celebration — a month dedicated to LGBT-related events as well as diversity and inclusion on campus.
LGBTRC faculty and staff planted hundreds of small red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet flags to resemble a larger rainbow flag and came together to immediately make the display complete again.
