A bisexual woman whose neighbours have complained about her having a “relentlessly gay” garden has responded by crowd funding to make it “even gayer”.
Julie Baker, 47, says she received a typed note from an anonymous resident which she believes was posted in response to the rainbow coloured fairy lights she put up in her garden.
The note read: “Dear Resident of 4900 Kenwood Ave., 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.”
It was signed: “A Concerned Home Owner.”
The mother of four was shocked to find the note and does not know which of her neighbours sent it.
She explained on the page: “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”.
“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!”
At the time of writing, the campaign has raised over $13,000 in funds. Ms Baker wrote to those who had donated so far saying: “Thanks for your relentlessly gay support!”
