Mayor Nancy Backus and her daughter, Lucky, raised the LGBTQ+ pride flag at city hall for the first time in 2020.

“In 2020, raising the Pride Flag was breaking new ground in Auburn, but I wish we would have begun the tradition a few years earlier and not just a proclamation,” Backus told The Auburn Examiner.

The LGBTQ pride flag was first created in 1978 by Gilbert Baker at the request of San Fransisco Mayor Harvey Milk.

“A Rainbow Flag was a conscious choice, natural and necessary,” Baker said. “The rainbow came from earliest recorded history as a symbol of hope.”
