A Pride Flag Incorporating LGBTQ+ People of Color
on 14 June 2017
First unfurled at a Pride Month launch celebration in Philadelphia, a new rainbow flag aims to recognize the POC members of the LGBTQ+ community. Part of the "More Color More Pride" campaign, the flag calls to attention—and embraces—the diversity within the already marginalized queer world. A testament to intersectionality, the pride flag's value lies in its powerful, inclusive statement. The addition of black and brown stripes above the rest of the rainbow affirms that the often overlooked people of color in the movement are represented.
