After Arson, Las Vegas LGBTQ Center Vandalized With Antigay Graffiti

LV Center

The LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas was spray-painted with an antigay slur overnight, the second incident of vandalism at the center in just three months.

The word “fag” was spray-painted in black on the center’s front door, staffers discovered when they arrived for work today, according to the center’s Facebook page.

There was an arson fire in late June at the center, then known as the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada, as someone torched a palm tree near the entrance. The fire was extinguished and the building escaped damage.

The city’s fire department is continuing to investigate the arson, and police are investigating the graffiti incident. Center officials plan to cover the graffiti until it can be removed, local TV station KLAS reports.
