What is the Pride Flag?
The Pride flag is a rainbow flag that symbolizes the LGBTQ+ community. It was designed in 1978 by Gilbert Baker, and first flown at the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day Parade. It has since become an internationally recognized symbol of the LGBTQ+ community.
The flag consists of a triangle made up of six horizontal stripes, each of which represents an LGBTQ+ identity. The colors of the flag represent the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community. The stripes are also inspired by the gay liberation movement, which used the flag to represent a unifying force.
The flag has been flown at various protests and rallies throughout the world, most notably at the Stonewall riots in 1969. It has also been used as the symbol of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) since its inception in 1984.
The Pride flag is an important symbol of the LGBTQ+ community and its supporters. It is a symbol of hope and acceptance, and it represents the strength and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
