RACINE — Memo Fachino and Lance Meir have displayed a rainbow Pride Flag outside of their Racine house for the last five years. The couple has quite the reputation around the neighborhood when it comes to holiday decorations. So when they were asked to remove their rainbow flag ahead of Pride Month, they simply said "we'll make it work."

They already had so many lights and decorations in-house from previous holidays, so they simply added colorful bulbs to their floodlights, creating a stunning rainbow reflecting across their home.

The couple's home Tuesday evening.

Fachino, also an active member of the neighborhood Racine Homeowners Association, received an email from the association just a day after the rule was made that someone had reported their Pride Flag.

They believe the rule came in as a result of the recent political climate.
