The neighbors posted the words, which were written on a rainbow flag, on a stone pillar that sits at the end of the driveways to both homes, Pitkin County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Buglione told The Aspen Times.

One of the neighbors tells the Times that the banner was the idea of their daughters and one of their daughters' girlfriends.

"You couldn't miss it", Buglione said of the banner that stands off Owl Creek Road. However, after the Secret Service told him they weren't there to control his "free speech rights", the residents came out with chili and fed the police officers and agents on duty.

A photo of a gay pride sign in Aspen is going viral. He also told The Aspen Times that the couple who live in the home brought chili and corn muffins to deputies and Secret Service agents posted at the foot of the driveway.

President Donald Trump has also joked that Pence "wants to hang" all gay people, The New Yorker reported in October.

He added that the vice president's security have been "really nice".

This isn't the first time that Pence has been greeted with LGBT pride messages.

Pence's hardline conservative views are well-known, and in 2006 he supported a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would have defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. As a member of Congress, he supported "conversion therapy" and said gay marriage would signal "societal collapse". According to Mike Pence gay is a choice, and he has said keeping gays from marrying is not discrimination but an enforcement of "God's idea".

Pence is a a long-time opponent of LGBTQ rights. As a Representative for IN, he voted against a bill banning discrimination against homosexuals.

Pence's spokesman, Mark Lotter, told The New York Times past year that the vice president does not support conversion therapy, and that his campaign statement was misinterpreted.
