June is apparently LGBTQ “Pride Month and we are going to be seeing a lot of that multicolored “Pride Flag” in parades, on banners, in print, on TV, in the movies …so what is the Gay Pride flag, where did it come from and what is it all about?
Here is the simplistic version of what I have been told: “Also known as the gay pride flag or LGBT pride flag, the colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community.” This flag first was adopted by the concerned community in 1978.
Here is what I am told the designer of the flag saw in it —- “‘” Baker saw the rainbow as a natural flag from the sky, so he adopted eight colors for the stripes, each color with its own meaning (hot pink for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, turquoise for art, indigo for harmony, and violet for spirit).”
And who designed the Gay Pride flag?
The designer of the Gay Pride Flag was Gilbert Baker. See more about him here —- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilbert_Baker_(artist)#:~:text=Gilbert%20Baker%20(June%202%2C%201951,worldwide%20symbol%20of%20LGBTQ%20pride.
What do I think about it?
I try not to think about it. It’s not MY thing! But more power to those who embrace it is my attitude.
