'Relentlessly Gay' yard complaint gets best response possible

Rebecca Bracken is a news and views writer.






'Relentlessly Gay' yard is about to get a super-gay makeover thanks to GoFundMe donations

When a widowed mother of four kids who lives in the Baltimore area got a note from her neighbor calling her yard decor "Relentlessly Gay," she did what any reasonable person would do in the same situation.

She started a Relentlessly Gay GoFundMe campaign to raise money to make her yard the gayest yard anyone’s ever seen!

Here’s the note:

I'll give this to her neighbor, she might be a petty bigot, but she has a real knack for words. "Relentlessly Gay" should be the name of a band or memoir or brand of cologne or something.

Here was Relentlessly Gay's response on her GoFundMe page.

"Needless to say... I need more rainbows... Many, many more rainbows..." Relentlessly writes. "I am a widow and mother of four children, my youngest is in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead I will battle with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family.

"Thanks for your relentlessly gay support!"

The project has captured the attention of people across the world. In fact, Relentlessly has already raised a staggering $33,058 so far, and she'd only asked for $5,000. One paint contractor in Baltimore offered to paint her entire house like a rainbow. Others suggest naked water features and unicorns might be nice additions. Others just offer to come dressed colorfully and dance in her yard. Bet that would have her neighbor clutching the old pearls, huh?

Relentlessly also says she's going to post a tutorial on her rainbow light project that started this whole thing. It's always nice to see humor and love winning out over hate wrapped in religion. If that's relentlessly gay, then count me in.
