These graduates protested their university’s anti-LGBTQ+ policy by handing rainbow flags to its president

In the spirit of Pride Month, students at the private Christian Seattle Pacific University have been making their feelings known over the school’s ban on hiring LGBTQ+ staff.

A clip of one of their forms of protest has gone wildly viral. Watch what they did.
