In a first, rainbow flag raised over St. Petersburg City Hall

St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman presided over the raising of the gay pride flag Thursday morning at City Hall.

The rainbow flag will be flown in front of City Hall for most of the weekend, and the mayor himself will attend the June 28 parade.

Unlike previous mayors, Kriseman has made connecting with the gay community a top priority. His administration also has had a more active role in the annual St. Pete Pride event.
