Rainbow flag flies at U.S. monument, but not on federal land

Gay rights activists who worked to get a rainbow flag installed permanently at the newly created Stonewall National Monument are upset the National Park Service says the flag isn't actually on federal land but on property owned by the city.

Activists pushed to add a rainbow flag to a flagpole on a triangle of sidewalk just outside the park fence, where a United States flag, a POW-MIA flag and a National Park Service flag were already flying.
