Burned Pride Float Replaced in Alaska

Burned Pride Float Replaced in Alaska


Just in time for the Independence Day parade in Anchorage on Sunday, The Imperial Court of All Alaska created a float to replace one that burned Friday in a suspected case of arson as a hate crime.

According to KTUU-TV, the new, 25-foot long float with rainbow colors was called "Phoenix Rising." The float won the grand champion trophy at the parade.

The original float burned Friday morning in a suspicious fire that continues to be investigated. Authorities think the fire may have been arson, and the LGBT community fears the possibility of a hate crime.
