Man paints apartment building rainbow colors to get back at anti-gay neighbor

Man paints apartment building rainbow colors to get back at anti-gay neighbor "It puts a smile on my face knowing that neighbor has to see it every day." By Molly Sprayregen Sunday, November 26, 2023

The owner of an Omaha, Nebraska apartment complex has painted the building rainbow at the request of his three daughters, ages five, seven, and nine. While his daughters were motivated by a love for the colors, Ryan Basye was intrigued by the idea due to a 2022 conversation he’d had with a fellow property owner on the block, during which the person made anti-gay remarks.

Basye – who owns about 25 properties and has been a realtor for 20 years – has also told tenants that he is willing to help them move out if the attention is too much. But according to the World-Herald, that isn’t a problem. Tenants reportedly love it, with one calling the paint job “freaking amazing and beautiful.” It’s a good thing, too, because Bayse said the rainbow color scheme cost twice as a normal paint job would have.

Basye also said his wife, Alison, has found humor in the situation, saying,


“It’s funny, because it’s coming from a boring, moderate, old, straight white guy.”
