Philadelphia Pride

The Philadelphia Pride Flag is a variation of the traditional rainbow pride flag that was adopted by the city of Philadelphia in 2017. It is designed to be more inclusive of the Black and Latinx LGBTQ+ communities.

The Philadelphia Pride Flag has eight stripes:

  • Black and brown: These stripes are located at the top of the flag and represent the Black and Latinx communities, respectively. They were added to the flag to highlight the disproportionate discrimination and violence that these communities face within the LGBTQ+ community.
  • Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple: These are the original colors of the rainbow pride flag, and they represent the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.

The Philadelphia Pride Flag has been praised for its inclusivity and its message of solidarity with marginalized communities. However, it has also been criticized by some who argue that it is too complex and that it dilutes the meaning of the original rainbow flag.

Despite the criticism, the Philadelphia Pride Flag has become a popular symbol of LGBTQ+ pride around the world. It is a reminder that the LGBTQ+ community is not monolithic, and that we must work to create a world where everyone is safe and respected.

Here are some additional details about the Philadelphia Pride Flag:

  • It was designed by Amber Hikes, a transgender activist, and the Philadelphia Office of LGBT Affairs.
  • It was unveiled in June 2017 as part of the city's "More Color, More Pride" campaign.
  • It is not an official flag of the city of Philadelphia.
