Jensen v. St. Augustine

NCLR, on behalf of Equality Florida and St. Augustine Pride Committee, won the right to fly rainbow flags over the historical Bridge of Lions in St. Augustine, Florida, for the 2005 Pride celebration. The City denied the Pride Committee's application to fly the flags for three years in a row, even though the Pride Committee met all of the City's requirements. To end this ongoing discrimination, NCLR filed a lawsuit alleging that the City was violating the First Amendment by excluding the Pride Committee because the City disapproved of their pro-LGBT viewpoint. On June 7, 2005, the court ruled in NCLR's favor and issued an order permitting the Pride Committee to fly rainbow flags on the bridge during the city's Pride Celebration.
