PRIDE ; SEE HOW RAINBOW COLORS INSPIRE AWESOME FASHION

THE RAINBOW FLAG

LGBT PRIDE

 Well me darlings June is Pride month in the US .However this was not declared by the current US administration. Since I follow politics I'm not at all surprised. While we may take it for granted that flying rainbow colors represent the progress LGBT communities  have made, it was not always that way. Arguably the battle for gay rights has just begun, as many states seem to be backtracking,  and in many coutries they don't exist .Since I refuse to listen to any debate that  does not support complete human rights, there is still a great need for Pride events to promote LGBT rights. At this point it is notable that Pride events are held at different times throughout the world and the US not just in June,the LGBT Flag  is the most powerful image  for  LGBT rights around the globe. Celebrate all your LGBT family ,friends ,neighbours and citizens  by donning the rainbow colors.

ABOUT THE RAINBOW FLAG

The rainbow flag, commonly the gay pride flag and sometimes the LGBT pride flag, is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements.

Therefore the colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community. Aboe all the flag is often used as a symbol of gay pride in LGBT rights marches. It originated in Northern California, but is now used worldwide.

Designed by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker in 1978, the design has undergone several revisions. first and foremost to  remove then re-add colors due to widely available fabrics. Therefore as of 2008, the most common variant consists of six stripes, with the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The flag is commonly flown horizontally, with the red stripe on top, as it would be in a natural rainbow.
