Mike Pence's neighbors put up a clever banner to protest his homophobia

  • Neighbor of Mike Pence's holiday home hangs rainbow flag with the words Make America Gay Again

Specifically, it's a rainbow banner reading "Make America Gay Again".

Initially, the man was nervous about placing the banner because of Pence's security detail, which he assumed wouldn't allow him to do it.

Buglione, the sheriff's deputy, told the Aspen Times that the Secret Service agents were not bothered by the banner and were cordial with the residents who posted it.

He continued: "They've been really nice to us".

Vice President Mike Pence speaks at the Focus on the Family 40 year anniversary event, on Friday, June 23, 2017.

'You couldn't miss it, ' Buglione told The Aspen Times of the sign off Owl Creek Road, adding that the man and woman who live in the home brought chili and corn muffins to deputies and Secret Service agents stationed at the foot of the driveway.

The banner was draped on a stone pillar located at the end of the driveways to Pence's home and that of a cheeky neighbour, the Aspen Times reported.

Shannon Slade, a girlfriend of one of the daughters in the home next to Pence's rental, admitted to hanging the banner, along with her partner and her partner's sisters.

LGBT advocates have previously showed their opposition to Pence.

When Pence announced he was temporarily moving to the affluent Chevy Chase neighborhood in Washington, D.C., residents there posted rainbow flags outside their homes.

While governor of Indiana, Pence signed legislation that critics said encouraged discrimination against gay people, has previously opposed repealing the US military's former "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and once likened marriage equality to "societal collapse" - positions that have placed him at odds with the LGBTQ community.

Pence has notoriously supported legislation that critics say discriminates against gay people. As governor of IN in 2015, Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a bill that would have given people the right to discriminate against LGBT people for religious reasons.

President Donald Trump has also joked that Pence "wants to hang" all gay people, according to The New Yorker.
