Rep Your Colors: A Brief History Of The LGBTQ+ Flag

Pride Month is here and many are celebrating by hanging up the LGBTQ+ flag.

The LGBTQ+ flag has a rich history and has evolved with the ongoing fight for equity and equality.

In 2018, Daniel Quasar, a non-binary artist based in Portland, Oregon, combined the elements of all of the flags over the years to embody a full and equitable representation of the queer community. Featuring elements of the trans rights flag, the Philadelphia Pride flag and the “Baker flag,” Quasar’s design is the first fully intersectional flag.

“The colors in the chevron represent trans individuals, people of color, those living with HIV/AIDS, and deceased members of the LGBTQ+ community,” he said.

Let’s take a look at a brief history of the LGBTQ+ flag and how it has evolved over the years.
