Comeback Girl

A woman was told her garden was 'relentlessly gay' and has planned the perfect revenge

Now she wants people to help paint her entire house in rainbows.


JULIE BAKER LIVES in Baltimore in the US, and her garden, above, is now the talk of the internet.

Why? Well, an anonymous neighbour thought it would be a good idea to leave this note on Juile’s front door: 


The letter went viral when it was posted to the Facebook page of George Takei on Wednesday, and has lead to Julie and her friends to plan a perfect comeback.

So she has started a GoFundMe campaign with a very special mission:

Needless to say…  I need more rainbows… Many, many more rainbows….
I am starting this fundraiser so I can work to make my Home even More “relentlessly gay”  If we go high enough, I will see if I can get a Rainbow Roof!

So, she’s planning to paint the house from top to bottom in rainbow colours, and is winning support all over the place for her goal.

Julie wrapped up her appeal with a stirring message to the anonymous hate:

Put simply, I am a widow and the mother of four children, my youngest in high school and I WILL NOT Relent to Hatred. Instead, I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love, wrapped around my home, yard and family!!!

You can read her full story over on the wonderfully titled

Go Julie.
