Update: Commissioner Tom Green responded to SFGN’s interview request after the article was published online.
“I have no opposition to [the Transgender Flag] but I was under the impression that the Rainbow Flag was inclusive [of transgender individuals]. It bothers me that transgenders are not included in this [Pride] Flag, according to some people,” said Green. He added that he supports flying other flags for special occasions but not permanently, and that he hopes the city doesn’t reach a point where every group has a flag flying. “Are we going to have a bisexual flag?”
In response to the Trump administration’s recent actions regarding the transgender community, activist and transgender ally Michael Rajner asked commissioners to fly the Transgender Flag as a show of support.
