For a second time, a trans pride flag at Brookline church is destroyed
A transgender pride flag on the front lawn of the United Parish church in Brookline was burned and destroyed on Saturday, according to church leaders.
The church reported Saturday’s alleged crime to the Brookline Police Department, it said in a statement.
BPD is investigating the incident as a hate crime, according to the department’s LGBTQ+ liaison Kristin Healy.
The progressive Protestant church on Harvard Street in Coolidge Corner has been targeted before: A transgender pride flag that previously flew on its lawn was destroyed in August of last year. Police are still investigating that crime as well, and have not made an arrest, Healy said.
