The Utah Pride Center, an LGBT community center in Salt Lake City, had its onsite coffee shop, Lady Marmalade, vandalized with anti-gay graffiti, the Salt Lake Tribune‘s LGBT FYI blog reports. As you can see from the provided photo, the word “FAGS” was sprayed in paint across the shop’s sign.
Said Valerie Larabee, executive director of the Utah Pride Center: “We realize that often times the purpose of these actions are to cause widespread fear among the members of our community. That is why today we are speaking out. This will not be swept under the rug. We will not be scared into silence by acts of intolerance.”
The Salt Lake City police department is investigating.
