After receiving bigoted threats, a New York woman painted her home in “defiant rainbows.”
According to a story published by PinkNews, a New York woman’s cat was cut in half and left on her property by a transphobic neighbor after she put up an LGBTQ pride flag on her property.
Angelina Bouros, of Rosendale, New York, told the Daily Freeman that she had been receiving hate mail for being transgender leading up to the death of her pet. After the cat was killed, the neighbor sent her an anonymous letter taking credit for it.
Following the death of her cat, Bouros’ neighbors and other volunteers helped her paint her home in rainbows in a show of support. Bouros told the Daily Freeman that she opted to paint her home as a message to the person threatening her.
“I’m not going to allow somebody to instill fear in me like that,” Bouros told the news organization. “I’m not going to put my life on hold. By doing what they’re doing, they’re bringing a lot of people together.”
Bouros’ circumstances drew international attention after she shared her supportive community online. Her story was picked up by NowThis and attracted almost 1,000 comments expressing support and empathy.
“THIS is HOW change occurs, by standing up for what we believe in and NEVER backing down,” Bouros wrote on her Facebook page. “We CAN change the world by standing TOGETHER!”
