Handle with care

A grandmother got her hands on her grandkid’s Pride flag & now she’s gone viral

When a young Virginia woman caught her grandmother ironing her bisexual Pride flag, she never could have predicted what would happen next.

She snapped a photo of the caring gesture and shared it to her Twitter page, where the post quickly went viral.

“I got up this morning to get ready for #DCPride,” she wrote in the caption. “My grandma walked into my room, looked at my bi flag, and said, ‘Oh, this needs to be pressed out!’ Such a simple gesture, but it holds so much love and meaning for me.”

The post has received over 32K retweets and nearly 240K likes:

After she started to see how touched people were to see her grandmother lovingly handling the flag, Lexi posted another tweet, this time adding context by explaining how terrified she was to come out to her grandma.

Then she sent out a third tweet — an absolutely adorable selfie with her grandmother.

“Here’s another picture of my grandma because I want the world to see how beautiful she is! Show her some love! Happy pride y’all,” she wrote.
