Have you guys seen this new pride flag??!

Keep it civil or this thread will get deleted, too.

Or maybe it’ll get deleted even if it’s kept civil, like the last one. God only knows why they deleted it.

R1 that thread was deleted. Bunch of queens were fighting over colonialism and the extent of it's overarching impact.

What’s the point of your post, OP? Yep, we saw it. Cool story.

To keep the discussion going since the last thread was deleted, R3. Feel free to sit this one out.

Translation of R4: OP is a messy bitch who wants these fat whores to fight again.

The flag will just become a color chart eventually.

All of this identity stuff is so tiresome.

by Anonymousreply 1606/06/2021

*Shrug* To me, that flag is for people who declare themselves "I'm LGBTQ" or, if that's too much of a tongue-twister, "I'm queer" - those who purposefully avoid that horrible G-word.

The 'old' flag seems to work just fine for gays like me. If anyone wants to cancel me or anyone else for using the 'wrong flag', well, that's their problem.

by Anonymousreply 1706/06/2021

Why does the scat contingent get a stripe?

by Anonymousreply 1806/06/2021

Again cultural appropriation only works one way. This isn't the pride flag. It's the opposite of it. Making it worthless.

by Anonymousreply 1906/07/2021

It’s hideous. The rainbow was meant to include everyone - is that not good enough?

by Anonymousreply 2006/07/2021

I'm actually colorblind, so it's pretty much all the same to me.

by Anonymousreply 2106/07/2021

R20 - no, apparently some graphic designer in Portland or Seattle (?) created this a couple of years ago and so now we must all adopt it.

We have to resist this bullshit. The rainbow flag was inclusive enough and they know it.

Now we have to push aside the rainbow to insert BLM and Trans representation? Does anyone not see how offensive this is?

We can't be everything to everyone. I don't see any black or trans groups changing THEIR flags to include gays and lesbians. And they shouldn't - separate fights, that we can all support. But it can't take over your initial purpose and intent.

by Anonymousreply 2206/07/2021

I need to be represented as well. I am a fat old gay bear with Aspberger's and Diabetes. I will let you all know when I find a color I like.

by Anonymousreply 2306/07/2021

So, the scat people get a stripe, but there’s no “Golden” stripe for the golden showers community, that doesn’t see right picking and choosing at random which communities get represented?

by Anonymousreply 2406/07/2021

Maybe they just should have done a patch work quilt of all the bandanas from the hanky code, that would have covered it all right?

[quote]Centering Trans PoC, Founders of the LGBTQIA+ Pride Movement

First it was gay rights, now it's pride. What's next ?

by Anonymousreply 2706/07/2021

Are they saying “Trans PoC” are “Founders of the LGBTQIA+ Pride Movement” (whatever that is)?

Strange that the provenance is so obscure, yet the "donate" button is so prominent. My first impression is that BLM has coopted the symbol (which is ugly in any case - who needs it except to identity the rapidly diminishing number of gay bars). Also strange that 6 years after the passage of gay marriage there's a need to add upraised fists to the imagery - as if getting what you wanted isn't satisfying but has instead open up new litanies of obscure grievances backed up by threats of violence. Nice.

It's hilarious how "indigenous" people are being used - as if any of these urban dwellers have met an indigenous person. Pretty shameless.

The old rainbow flag worked as a visual statement because of its simplicity and its proximity to how real rainbows actually look.

This is just clutter, Clutter, CLUTTER!

by Anonymousreply 3906/09/2021

I really, truly cannot wrap my head around the need to “add” people of color to this flag. It’s just complete post-modern nonsense.

by Anonymousreply 4006/09/2021

I loathe this flag in all its formats.

Mainstream hets regard the original format as inoffensive Hippy Flags or Color Spectrum Flags.

I see them as Public Relations exercise to cajole the general public to think gays are inoffensive eunuchs who are safe to have around children.

The same Public Relations push has erased the word 'sex' and replaced it with 'gender'. And they erased the word 'gay' and replaced it with the unpronounceable acronym.

by Anonymousreply 4106/09/2021

The majority of people aren’t changing their pride flag to this ridiculous overreach. It’s simple and it’s iconic. Relax people, it’s not going ANYWHERE.

by Anonymousreply 4206/09/2021

Like, why does a culture and its iconography change as time progresses? 😮😲

Let’s hope. It certainly seems to be getting a lot of attention, R42.

I never use any kind of flag myself, so ultimately this “update” doesn’t affect me, though it’s revolting to me in terms of politics and aesthetics. (The original flag is also revolting to me, and I think a person would have to be a bit basic to embrace it.)

What do you mean " progresses", R43?

These lunatics are taking over.

by Anonymousreply 4506/09/2021

As TIME PROGRESSES, as in the perpetual motion of time. How a culture changes over time.

I get the white, pink, brown and black stripes but what the fuck is the blue stripe for?

by Anonymousreply 4706/13/2021

A simple rainbow will suffice. It’s a RAINBOW. it’s all inclusive.

No need for other symbols and colors.

In fact, you lose my support at that point.

Any other “centrists” in favor of all inclusiveness?!?

Can't some trans designer just turn the Nazi flag pink and blue? That would be fitting.

I Googled and found this flag history. I didn't know there were specific flags for specific groups.

There are too many flags.

I still don't understand what race and gender have to do with sexuality. Also, I'm quite glad my race isn't included in that hideous flag.

No yellow for Asians.

by Anonymousreply 5406/13/2021

I say we let the TQIA2SBIPOC+ have it. They would implode in a matter of days and wind up with a Jackson Pollock painting as their catch-all symbol of inclusivity. Meanwhile, the LGB could design an entirely new flag, or even better, no flag at all. I've always found them tacky and excessive.

by Anonymousreply 5506/13/2021

Maybe it's just because we are in a interesting period of time, but it now feels like black trans pride month. All the marketing I am getting is celebrating black or black trans as the poster people for the month. I guess it's time to share the spotlight, but I don't see much of myself in this new version of pride. I rather not conflate pride with BLM as I think BLM is leans more towards anti-gay.
