When Sal Stow went out to pick up packages off the front porch, she was surprised to find a note tucked under a rock on the front mat.
The couple lives around conservative Williamson County and Round Rock County. Recently, Round Rock County Commissioners voted 4-0 to keep the pride flag from being flown on its court buildings.
While the local county commissioners refused to fly the pride flag from court buildings, Stow, and her wife, Meghan Stabler, proudly fly two rainbow flags at their house. And the gesture didn’t go unnoticed by one of the kids who get on the school bus by their home.
“Hello,” the note begins. “You don’t know me, but my name is XXX.”
“We’re moving away today, but I wanted to thank you. Seeing a pride flag waving so proudly outside your house everyday has given me the courage to come out to my family and to be more comfortable with who I am.”
The note is accompanied by a drawing of a young person waving a trans flag and a pansexual flag.
