First vandals tried to burn the LGBTQ center down. Now they've left antigay slurs on the front door.

The LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada has fallen victim to a second attempt by vandals in three months, as their front door was tagged with the slur “fag” in black spray paint across their front door in the early hours of September 6.

The center, located in Las Vegas, had previous been the victim of an arson attack when a palm tree to the side of the entrance was intentionally lit on fire at the end of Pride month. No major damage was reported in that attempt.

The graffiti was discovered by employees when they reported to work this morning.

“We woke up today like any other day, but on this day we’re met with a reminder as to why we are still needed. The second act of vandalism to our Center in three months. Hatred will not stop us, it shows us more and more that we need to stand taller, shout louder and love harder. We are The Center,” read a statement on the center’s Facebook page.

1. More haters! The US is full of haters of everything. It's a country of hatred for many things.

It's quite pathetic.
