City leaders made history outside Boise City Hall Friday. Supporters gathered downtown as the Pride Flag was raised over Boise for the first time ever. The flag symbolizes gay rights and now hangs just below the City of Boise flag. Supporters call it a sign of hope. "We're making those small steps and today was a huge process in that and I look forward to the future and seeing everybody recognize that we all need equal protection under the law," said Wendi Trottier, a gay rights supporter. Raising the flag is part of Pride Weekend in Boise. The flag will be flying at city hall until Sunday or Monday.
