LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An out-of-state advocacy organization is seeking approval to temporarily place a symbol of gay pride on state Capitol grounds in Little Rock.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1XwYsOe ) that The Humanity Fund, based in Boca Raton, Florida, submitted an application to the secretary of state’s office Monday requesting to put a “Gay Pride Festivus Pole” on Capitol grounds.

In the document, the organization’s executive director Chaz Stevens outlines plans for a disco ball 8 inches in diameter to be placed atop a 6-foot pole wrapped in the colors of the rainbow.

Information regarding the application’s status wasn’t immediately available Tuesday afternoon.

Temporary display policy states an application can be denied if deemed unsafe, of a permanent nature, disruptive to Capitol grounds business, destructive to the grounds or if it goes beyond the U.S. Constitution’s limits on free speech.
