BARRINGTON — Barrington held a panel discussion on how to support the LGBTQ community in response to anti-LGBTQ vandalism last month. There had been another anti-LGBTQ incident in the village in December 2018. The Daily Herald of Arlington Heights reported that about 75 people showed up at the discussion at the Barrington Area Library. The mother of the teen targeted in the June vandalism incident talked about the harrassment her daughter had received before the vandalism followed by the outpouring of support afterwards. The panel included Barrington Trustee Emily Young, former library board Trustee Barbara Pintozzi, Equality of Illinois Director of Civic Engagement Anthony Galloway, and County Commissioner Kevin Morrison.
