Family leaves Appleton after rash of anti-gay harassment
A straight single mother of three children is moving away from Appleton after a rash of homophobic attacks on her car and rental property that started in March. The attacks included anti-lesbian graffiti. The car's bumper features a rainbow flag sticker and the symbol of the Human Rights Campaign. The woman shares the car with her lesbian sister and her sister's domestic partner. The sister lives in another-and apparently less hostile-area of Waupaca County.
