BALTIMORE, Md. — After hanging some colorful jar lights in her front yard with her daughters, Julie Baker received a note from a neighbor.
According to the Facebook photo, the note read:
Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone it Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be forced to call the police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.”
The note, which Baker said she discovered inside her door, was signed, “A Concerned Home Owner.
In response to a note Baker has set up a GoFundMe page so she can make her “relentlessly gay” yard even more ‘relentless gay’.
Baker says on the page:
I opened my door, and found a note from my neighbor. Regarding a set of rainbow jar solar lights hanging in my yard that spell out “Love” and “Ohana”. They informed me that the neighborhood is “christian” and has “children” and asked me to stop being “relentlessly gay”….
Needless to say… I need more rainbows… Many, many more rainbows….
So, I am starting this fundraiser so I can work to make my Home even More “relentlessly gay” If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof!
Because my invisible relentlessly gay rainbow dragon should live up there in style!
Put simply, I am a widow and the mother of four children, my youngest in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!
As of Thursday afternoon Baker’s page has raised more than $20,000.
