Two Colors Added To Late Gilbert Baker’s Pride Flag In Inclusive Campaign
By Yoon Sann Wong, 21 Jun 2017
Since its inception in 1978, the rainbow pride flag by the late artist Gilbert Baker has become a symbol of unity for the LGBTQ+ community internationally.
To provide greater inclusiveness for queer people of color, black and brown were added to the flag last week under ‘#MoreColorMorePride’—a campaign launched by City of Philadelphia’s Office of LGBT Affairs.
This reimagined rainbow pride flag was developed by Philadelphia-based PR-cum-ad agency Tierney, and rolled out in time for Pride Week.
“It may seem like a small step. But together we can make big strides toward a truly inclusive community,” reads the campaign.
