Rainbow Colored Home In Killeen, Texas Grabs Attention During Pride Month
There are so many unique houses in Killeen Texas, but I felt like this house in particular had to be talked about due to the fact that it is Pride Month.
SPOTTED ON ZILLOW GONE WILD
First, credit where credit is due. I initially saw this house on Zillow Gone Wild, and at first I didn't believe it was real. I drove by to confirm it, and yes, this place exists. You can see it for yourself at 1012 N 10th St. in Killeen (or scroll down for some pics).
Now I’m not exactly sure who the owners of this specific home are, but the idea of this rainbow-colored home really had me very in intrigued. I’m not exactly sure if this home is representing the LGBTQ community or if the owners are just fans of rainbows (did some Stranger Things-type experiments go on here?) but either way you can't help but smile when you drive by.

WHY IS PRIDE MONTH SO IMPORTANT? (AND WHY JUNE?)
Pride Month is about shining a light on the dignity, struggles, and accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community.
June was chosen because it was the month in which the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York, which was a landmark event in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights and representation.
LOVE IS LOVE
I also think it’s pretty amazing that three presidents of the United States have officially recognized pride month. It shows how far we've come in terms of learning to accept those who are different, though we obviously still have miles to go.
I’ve always been someone all about equal rights and equality for any man, woman, or child no matter how they identify or express themselves. At the end of the day, it's about simply being kind to one another, not judging someone for being different from you, and sewing peace and love wherever you go.
Again, I’m not exactly sure if this home was specifically painted this way to support the LGBTQ+ community, but I definitely put a smile on my face. Happy pride month, Central Texas!
