Pride flag

A Pride flag that hung in the window of an Oregon library was the apparent target of BB gun fire amid Pride month and a growing wave of anti-LGBTQ+ measures from US legislatures.

In a Facebook statement on Wednesday, the Newberg public library in Newberg, Oregon, said that around 7.10pm, a BB gun was fired at a window on the south-east corner of the library. A picture showed a shattered window, behind which a Pride flag hung.

“The original 1912 glass is still intact. The new protective glass installed with grant funds in January 2024 has been shattered. It is likely the shot was fired from 99W,” the library said.

Following the incident, the Newberg-Dundee police department said that in addition to vandalism, there were “concerns that the suspect(s) possibly had a biased intent because a Pride flag was displayed directly behind the vandalized window”.
