The Supreme Court ruled in favor Friday of an evangelical Christian web designer from Colorado who refuses to work on same-sex wedding websites.
The high court struck down Colorado's public accommodations law explicitly protecting LGBTQ+ rights.
The web designer said forcing her to create wedding websites for gay couples violated her right to free speech.
The LGBTQ+ community in Connecticut says the ruling is a major setback and shows how divided the country is.
Members of Westport Pride met with the Public Works Department Friday to measure what materials will be needed to make the Pride flag crosswalk a permanent fixture.
"It makes me worried as a member of LGBTQ. That we are lucky we don't have to deal with that sort of bias here on a daily basis. This does concern me could lead to other challenges for things like marriage equality," said Brian McGunagle, founder of Westport Pride.
