About the bill

Should American embassies be allowed to fly gay pride flags in addition to the Stars and Stripes?

What the bill does

The Old Glory Only Act [H.R. 6450] would prevent any flag besides the American one from being flown at U.S. embassies.

This comes after U.S. embassies in Belize, Israel, and Jamaica have briefly flown rainbow flags in honor of LGBT pride week or after the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

It was introduced on July 19 by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC3).
