About Us

Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group. In recent years the Q+ has been added to include other parts of the ''queer'' community, people who don?t necessarily fall specifically into one of the other categories listed above.

Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters our LGBT rights movements. Pride has lent its name to LGBT-themed organizations, institutes, foundations, book titles, periodicals, a cable TV station, and the Pride Library.

Common symbols of pride are the rainbow flag and the pink triangle. The colors of the rainbow flag reflect the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community and the spectrum of human sexuality and gender. The pink triangle was reclaimed from use as badges of shame in Nazi concentration camps.

We can think of no better way to celebrate and embrace every facet of the LGBTQ+ community than by letting our flags fly.
