According to The Queerstory Files, Sean was working on a special Pride edition of the and created “rather than hunt around getting copyright clearance for photos and images Sean came up with the imaginative idea of designing flags for various sections of the lgbt community.” The flag has made a little traction on the internet, but has never been widely recognized as one for the lesbian community.

The riots are known today as the event that began the civil rights movement for LGBT people.
On June 28, 1969, gay customers at a popular gay called the Stonewall Inn were fed up with the harassment they received from police because many gay establishments had been shut down by police.People have been celebrating gay pride since the Stonewall riots but President Clinton officially declared June Gay and Lesbian Pride month in 2000.And in 2009, President Obama updated the name of the month to LGBT Pride Month.I’m not proposing I create the lesbian pride flag, or that this design of mine be utilized by lesbians of the world forever more, but I do think we could benefit from something like this of our own.Flags are used as powerful signaling devices; patriotic symbols of messages and purpose that can be used in times of celebration and demonstration.Male prisoners who were thought to be homosexual were forced to wear pink triangles, while women who were “arrested and imprisoned for anti-social behavior” (aka feminists, lesbians, prostitutes and “any woman who didn’t conform to the ideal Nazi image of a woman: cooking, cleaning, kitchen work, child raising, passive, etc.”) were made to wear black triangles.Although this wasn’t what inspired the Daughters of Bilitis to include a black triangle on their emblem, it is interesting that it happened to be one of the first examples of its reclamation and use of something positive.Of course, none of these qualities are gay male specific (nor are they even “gay” specific), so the rainbow could effectively seek to represent lesbians as well.But even sectors of the community have their own flags, from bears to BDSM and leather cultures.Without the bravery of those people at the riots, the progression of rights for gays may not have been where it is today.Pride celebrations in every city differ but you can expect parades, parties, picnics and much more!
