    PITTSBURGH - A Rainbow flag is being flown outside the Pittsburgh City-County Building Wednesday in recognition of the two court cases being heard by the Supreme Court this week

    The flag was hung on the flagpole outside the Grant Street building Wednesday.

    “The Rainbow flag has flown in front of the City-County Building on several occasions before, including the past two years during pride week in June,” special assistant to the mayor Jim Sheppard said.

    Sheppard referred to the flag as “a non-political, non-offensive, symbolic gesture in solidarity with the LGBT citizens of the City of Pittsburgh.”

    According to Sheppard, the same gesture has been done in other cities across the country.
