LGBT flag raised at San Francisco City Hall in honor of Pride Month

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The LGBT flag was raised at San Francisco's City Hall on Friday in honor of Pride Month.

The flag will sit prominently on the front of the building, hanging over Polk Street.

Mayor Ed Lee said it's important to recognize how far the community has come in its fight for civil rights, especially following the deadly attack in Orlando.

"When we raise this flag for that moment of celebration, we're also honoring victims and that's why we also pulled it back for half mast," Lee said,

The two-day Pride celebration at Civic Center Plaza will start one week from Saturday. The Pride Parade will be one week from Sunday.
