Intersectional Chicago Queer Pride Flag
Regular price $27.00
When Jeffrey Allmen designed their first intersectional, inclusive, Queer pride flag in 2018, they aimed to highlight the Trans (pink/blue, also represented by white) and BIPOC (brown/black) humanity within the queer community. Statistically these glorious souls are more likely to die of violent crime, suicide, suffer in
poverty, be assaulted physically, and sexually. The 2020 flag includes a
star to represent our Non Binary, Intersex and GenderQueer folx
(black, purple, yellow, also represented by white and green). The
best way to fight ignorance and fear, is with empathy and love.
Sharing our humanity and educating our neighbors to the
possibility and wonder within each of us. Flying this flag reminds
your friends and neighbors you see them, you stand with
them, you are listening, learning, and ready to do the work.
Dimensions: 24 x 36," 36 x 60," & 48 x 72"
Materials: Printed in the USA, triple stitched
