Transgender flag flies over Boston City Hall for the first time

A flag supporting the transgender community flew over Boston City Hall for the first time Monday afternoon.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh tweeted a photo of the flag, which has blue, pink, and white stripes.

“Proud to fly the #TransFlag over Boston City Hall for the 1st time in MA history – a sign that everyone is welcome,” he wrote.

Walsh said the flag will continue to fly until all citizens see equality under Massachusetts law.

A bill that aims to extend protections for transgender people beyond the workplace and into public places is making its way through the state legislature.
