This kiosk featuring a GLBT Pride Month display, located in downtown Robbinsdale Minnesota was vandalized in 2004. As an openly gay member of the Robbinsdale Human Rights Commission, I created it at the direction of the Commission.
The City's first response to the vandalism was not to condemn the hate crime but to pass new regulations on the size color of the font to be used for displays in the kiosk.
After some months, the city council finally passed a resolution condemning the vandalism after I wrote the resolution myself and pushed it through the Human Rights Commission to be passed on to the City Council. Better late than never, eh?
Incidentally, the vandalism was reported to local media but nothing was ever published on the incident.
