The City of Dublin will consider an outdoor display policy for flags at city facilities.

This comes after a council member requested that the rainbow flag be flown during the month of June which is Pride Month.

The city voted down the idea last month, prompting a lot of backlash.

Now, a special meeting is being held to address the Pride flag at City Hall.

The mayor says he wants more people in on the discussion before they make a decision.

The meeting started later than scheduled and opened with public input.

Council member John J. Bauters from Emeryville posted to Twitter saying:

Tonight, the Emeryville City Council voted unanimously to hang a second Pride Flag in support of LGBT community members who need support outside our city.
