The Baltimore Sun has reported that Julie Baker a local resident has started a GoFundMe campaign so she can make her “relentlessly gay” yard even more relentless and more gay.
The campaign is in response to a note left by one of her neighbours that read:
“Dear resident of ___ Kenwood Avenue
Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighbourhood 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.”
Signed A Concerned Home Owner
Ms. Baker immediately posted this on her Facebook page and then when she launched the Fund wrote,
“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!!!”
By 10:15 Wednesday night Baker had more than doubled her $5,000 fundraising goal to make her home relentlessly gayer.
