🏳️🌈 Pride Flag, a work in Progress
An inspired move to include Intersex became the latest evolution of the LGBTQIA+ community flag. Contrary to most, the Pride Flag is a permanent work in progress.
It’s June, and that means Pride month is on. Plenty of brands jumped on the bandwagon, but the biggest move came from within. The Rainbow flag got an update and is now looking more inclusive than ever.
The LGBTQIA+ community flag got an update by Valentino Vacchietti at Intersex Equality Rights by including Intersex in the already existing Progress flag - an evolution on the Pride Flag to include communities beyond LGBT. Changing a dot on the flag could be a national debate subject in most countries, but the Rainbow flag 🏳️🌈 is different: it tries to blend in all community members by combining their flags into one.
It evolves with time, and it won’t stop until it covers all the 64 gender terms identified today.
So what is the composition of this version of the Pride flag?
And the combination results:
While progress flags are already flying in many public places outside of the Pentagon, and some brands were quick to show their support, the 2022 version may need to be updated, and 2023 may be different. The Pride flag is just as much as the issues it represents, a work in progress to the community.
