ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says the city is sending a message of inclusiveness with the raising of the transgender flag at City Hall.

The pink, light blue and white flag was raised Monday, making St. Louis one of only a handful of cities to fly the transgender flag. It is being raised as part of Pride month and will remain in place through June. Another transgender flag was raised at a second city office building a couple of blocks away.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/28K4xDI) reports that the idea was proposed by PROMO, which advocates in Missouri for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.
