Lesbian Couple Finds ‘Kill the Gay’ Scrawled on Garage, Noose on Doorstep: VIDEO


A Parker, Colorado lesbian couple fears for their safety after finding "Kill the gay" scrawled on their garage and a noose on their doorstep, KWGN reports:

ParkerThe couple admits they’ve had an ongoing feud with their homeowners association at their Parker condo complex. They say their H.O.A regularly complains that the couple does not pick-up after their dogs. One neighbor said the two regularly have noise complaints.

The couple has notified Parker police who are investigating. Investigators take the reports of harassment seriously and they have increased patrols in the neighborhood.

Said Aimee Whitchurch: “You get words like ‘homos’ or ‘you’re going to burn in hell’ and things of that nature, but ‘kill the gay?’ That’s a threat against our lives so it was overwhelming...You don’t know who is targeting you. At first I thought it was kids until the noose."

The couple says they will not be scared into moving.

Aimee and Christel put up signs on the garage door that read “We will not submit to hate” and “Don’t cover it, solve it.”
