NBC Hit With Protests for Ignoring *** in Russia in Lead-Up to Sochi Winter Olympics: VIDEO Nation protested outside NBC's Sports Department holiday party outside a restaurant on East 30th street in NYC yesterday. The banner was sewn by Gilbert Baker, the creator of the Rainbow Flag. Earlier in the day, the group hit the Today show holiday party. The group explained its actions in a press release: Charging that NBC is misinforming its viewers about the dire circumstances of LGBT Russians ahead of its broadcast of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia, LGBT activists will demand that NBC tell the truth about Russia and its anti-LGBT laws. “NBC has dispatched Olympic commentator Johnny Weir and MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts, two openly *** men, to soft-pedal the Russian government’s anti-LGBT bigotry,” said Ken Kidd, a member of *** Nation NY, an LGBT rights group. “LGBT Russians have been vilified, assaulted, tortured, murdered, and fired from their jobs by the Russian government and by Russian thu .. ...

The original Rainbow Flag had 8 stripes with the color pink signifying sexuality, red signifying life, orange signifying healing, yellow signifying sunlight, green signifying nature, indigo signifying magic, blue signifying serenity, & violet signifying spirit. The *** pride flag currently consists of six stripes of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Violet. The "first openly *** man elected to any substantial political office in the history of the planet" was Harvey Milk, who became a San Francisco City Supervisor in 1978. An artist friend of Milk's, Gilbert Baker, designed the Rainbow Flag for San Francisco's *** Freedom Day Parade that year. After Milk was assassinated later that year, the Rainbow Flag began to be used in San Francisco as a general symbol of the *** community and it's use eventually spread across the world.
On This *** Day: 1978 - Gilbert Baker's creation, the Rainbow Flag makes its public debut at San Francisco's *** Freedom Day Parade. The original flags has eight equal strips of color. The following year the hot pink and turquoise stripes are dropped and indigo is replaced by a lighter blue. 1981 - Essayist Richard Hall notes the changes in tone that have occurred over a decade of Pride celebrations: "I was in San Francisco last year for *** Pride XI, and the parade struck me as very different from those I had seen before. It didn't seem to be a mass outpouring of anger and determination. There weren't hordes of unaffiliated but impassioned marchers. The real crowds weren't in the street but at the curb, laughing and cheering. They were, I thought, the same mobs who might have turned out for St. Patrick's Day or the Chinese New Year." (I wonder what this guy would think of today's 'no *** corporate oriented parades.) 1986 - In the case of Bragdon Vs. Abbot, the US Supreme Court rules that the Amer ...

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In early October 2010, Canadian teenager Brittany McMillan promulgated the observance of a new commemoration called Spirit Day, the first observance of which took place on October 20, 2010, in which people wear the color purple to show support for LGBT young people who are victims of bullying. Promoted by GLAAD, many Hollywood celebrities wore purple on this day to show their support of this cause, and many websites added a prominent purple shade to their design.

Thanks to Gilbert Baker, LGBT people have the Rainbow Flag as their symbol of pride. "The rainbow is a part of nature and you have to be in the right place to see it,” Baker said in a June interview with CBS Chicago.

In 1978, Gilbert Baker of San Francisco designed, dyed, and sewed six stripes into a flag featuring the colors of the rainbow to symbolize *** and *** community pride, according to The Alyson Almanac: A Treasury of Information for the *** and *** Community . Baker explained that the six colors represented, respectively: sexuality, life, healing, sun, nature, art, harmony, and spirit. Baker's flag was created the same year that San Francisco's first openly homosexual city supervisor, Harvey Milk, was assassinated by a gunman at City Hall. The Pride Parade Committee commissioned the Rainbow Flag during its 1979 demonstration of solidarity in the aftermath of Milk's death.
I'm not just a Debbie Downer or an endless whiner, believe it or not. Nobody seems to care about community aesthetics anymore, and yes I have raised my voice many times, and it has paid off this time. I just had Dwayne Crenshaw of San Diego Pride inform me that indeed a glaring mistake was made with the newly raised Hillcrest Pride flag and it is in the process of being replaced already. I brought to his and the HBA's attention, that there were odd colors chosen, and already a noticeable fading of the inexpensive material chosen. This was all confirmed by Gilbert Baker creator of the original Pride flag. Unfortunately the HBA and members of Hale Media have ignored my posts and continue to solicit Orchid nominations for this White Elephant that was foisted on the community by their own doing. With the time, money, and effort taken on this project, it is a shame to see it all wasted with this necessary replacement, that could have been avoided with an open and intelligent decision making process to begin wi ...

"June 25th... The Rainbow Flag Flies For The First Time: In Victorian England the color green was associated with homosexuality, as was purple in the USA. The pink triangle was first used by Hitler’s Nazi Party to identify *** males & black triangle was similarly used to identify *** & others deemed “asocial”. The pink & black triangle symbols were reclaimed by the *** communities in the early 1980s to signify their strength of spirit & willingness to survive oppression. As they slowly started gaining their rights, the symbols of oppression are gradually being replaced by the symbols of celebration. The most colorful of *** symbols is the Rainbow Flag, and its rainbow of colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple, which represent the diversity of their communities. The first Rainbow Flag was designed in 1978 by Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco artist, in response to calls by activists for a symbol for the community. Baker designed a flag with 8 stripes: pink, red, orange, yellow, green, ...
