GM plant in Fort Wayne flies gay pride rainbow flag

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- A General Motors assembly plant in Ft. Wayne is getting a lot of attention for flying a gay pride rainbow flag.

The plant put the flag up in honor of National Pride Month.

The decision stirred some controversy for some but others see it as a hopeful indication that equality is on the way.

"I think that they're just setting a very huge example," says Jerry Lawson, a Ft. Wayne resident. "It's a very good thing to see us on our way to equal rights."

GM says it supports all employees and hopes to spark constructive conversation.

The Indiana state flag, United Auto Workers flag, and a POW flag are also up at the plant.
