New pride flag
My new pride flag arrived today.

Purple= spirit, blue = art, green = harmony with nature, yellow = sun, orange = healing, and red = light. The newly added black and brown stripes were added to include gay people of color.

The flag was redesigned in Philly in 2017. The colors, according to the Philadelphia Office of LGBT Affairs’ More Color More Pride campaign, represent inclusion of people of color in the LGBTQ community.

Philadelphia and i
ts Pride campaign’s addition of two stripes to the rainbow flag came amidst the city’s underlying problem with racial discrimination in its gay bars. As Eater reported in February, 11 gay bars and nightlife venues were recently required to take anti-racism training after complaints were made that the bars and clubs were discriminating against nonwhite patrons.

Other complaints involved bars and clubs denying entry to nonwhite people based on vague dress codes, and white male patrons getting preferential treatment.

I remember how controversial this flag was when first introduced. But I’m very happy to see it more broadly used and accepted now.

Yeah I vaguely remember that being an issue...People are irritating Dodgy

Fortunately, while adding brown and black are symbolic, same was renaming Washington's football team, removing confederate statues, they are a move in the right direction and things will get better.
