The U.S. Embassy in Israel, Latvia, Brazil, and Germany wanted to raise the rainbow flag in honor of pride month. The white house turned them down

The administration of the trump denied the request of a number of American embassies to be installed on the flagpoles near the buildings with their rainbow flags in honor of pride month is traditionally celebrated LGBTIQ community in June. According to sources in the government, among those who refused the request of the Embassy in Germany, Israel, Brazil, and Latvia.

The representatives of States abroad, said Brian Bulatao from the Department of justice, cooperating closely with the Secretary of state Pompeo and obey him even in the times of joint work in the CIA.

While during the Obama administration, all American embassies were allowed to set LGBTIQ flags on its territory without restrictions, this year — said the diplomats were told about the new rules. The flags were allowed to place inside and on the walls belonging to the authorities of States buildings — but not on flagpoles.
