Pride flag raised at Travis County government building for first time

Travis County

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Travis County Commissioners voted Tuesday to pass a resolution allowing county staff to fly the LGBTQIA+ Pride Flag at any Travis County government building annually during Pride month.

Travis County Judge Andy Brown, LGBTQIA+ leaders and commissioners held a Pride flag-raising ceremony at the Travis County Government Administration building in downtown Austin to commemorate the moment Tuesday. This is the first time the Pride flag has flown at the county.

“This is another step along our path at the County. Travis County has long been a welcoming work place,” Commissioner Brigid Shea said.

According to the resolution, the Pride flag will be flown throughout the month of June annually and during Austin-Travis County’s Pride Parade in August.
