  • Lawmaker: Pence to play key role in 2018 elections

As Vice President Mike Pence and his wife were undoubtedly enjoying their vacation at a house in Aspen, Colorado this week, their neighbors shared a very important message with them written on a rainbow-colored banner: Make America Gay Again.

According to CNN, the neighbors hung a rainbow flag with the words "Make America Gay Again" on a stone pillar that borders the end of the driveway to the two homes.

In an email to the Aspen Times, Shannon Slade said she is a girlfriend of one of the daughters of the couple living in the house and that they posted the banner.

Pitkin County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Buglione told The Aspen Times that the sign was set up on Wednesday and continued to hang on Thursday. Pence also as a history of opposing the LGBT community.

In January, LGBTQ protesters held a "queer dance party" outside a home where Pence was staying in Washington, D.C. shortly after Trump's inauguration.

While serving as the governor of Indiana, Pence signed into law a contentious bill that would permit businesses to openly discriminate against members of the LGBTQ community. But the provisions only applied to some of the most liberal cities in the state, which already had protections in place, according to the Post.

According to a New Yorker report in October, President Donald Trump joked that Pence wanted to "hang" all gay people in a meeting with a legal expert. However, after the Secret Service told him they weren't there to control his "free speech rights", the residents came out with chili and fed the police officers and agents on duty.

While serving as a congressman, Pence described traditional marriage as the institution "that forms the backbone of our society" and once feared that marriage equality legislation would lead to "societal collapse".

Aspen is the county seat of Pitkin, where Hillary Clinton defeated Trump by a significant margin: 69.7 percent to 24.3 percent.
