'Make America Gay Again' sign greets Pence in Colorado

The banner reads "Make America Gay Again" - a play on President Donald Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again".

The flag was hung on a stone post by the daughters of the family who lives next door to the house where Pence is staying, a friend of the young women, Shannon Slade, told the Aspen Times.

This isn't the first time that Pence's neighbours have taken it upon themselves to deliver a message of LGBTQ tolerance to the staunchly conservative Republican.

Things escalated further in January when activists held an outdoor "Queer Dance Party" in the neighbourhood, complete with rainbow flags, glow sticks and hula hoops.

Pence, of course, has not commented on the sign. The bill, called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, led to a national protest. But those only applied in cities, some of which are the most liberal in the state, where such protections already exist locally.

He has also been accused of being a proponent of "conversion therapy", a practice which purports to change individuals' sexual orientation via spiritual intervention.

In Congress, where he was a member from 2001 to 2013 before becoming IN governor, Pence described traditional marriage as the institution "that forms the backbone of our society". During a House floor speech, he cited a report that said "societal collapse was always brought about following an advent of the deterioration of marriage and family", according to the report. He has opposed legislation prohibiting discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in the workplace.

In Aspen, the banner didn't seem to cause tension. Clinton also won Colorado with a almost 3 percent lead.
