SAN FRANCISCO — A Northern California city is flying the pride flag over City Hall after council members initially rejected the idea.

Shawn Kumagai, a city council member in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Dublin, introduced a resolution last month calling on the city to recognize June as pride month and fly the pride flag.

The council agreed to recognize pride month but rejected the flag proposal, saying the city would need to first create a policy about flying non-official flags.

The decision led to protests outside City Hall and a petition calling on the city to fly the flag that gathered more than 800 signatures.

KQED News reports Wednesday that Dublin officials immediately raised the rainbow flag after a meeting Tuesday night. It will fly until July 3.
