MORE THAN JUST A RAINBOW OF COLOUR

Most people know what the LGBTQ+ flag looks like. The 6 colour rainbow flag shows up everywhere during festivals all over the world! However the rainbow is only one of many flags that champion our LGBTQ+ community.

Please note there are many pronouns that people use and the ones listed here are not the only pronouns that exist so do your research. Please ask someone before you use them!

LGBT

LGBT (or GLBT) is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.

This more modern six colour flag stands for the same values as it did since 1974 but lost the hot pink strip due to fabric availability in 1978. Red represents life, orange represents healing, yellow represents sunshine, green represents nature, blue represents harmony and violet represents spirit.

GENDERQUEER

Non-binary, also known as genderqueer, is a spectrum of gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine—identities that are outside the gender binary.

Yellow represents people whose gender exists outside the binary, purple represents those who feel their gender is a mixture of – or between – male and female, black represents people who feel as if they have no gender, and white represents those who embrace many or all genders.

PANSEXUAL

PRONOUN: THEY, THEM, THEIRS, SHE, HER. HERS, HE, HIM, HIS

Pansexuality, or omnisexuality, is the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity.

BISEXUAL

PRONOUN: HER, HERS, SHE, HIS, HIM, HE

The pink colour represents sexual attraction to the same sex only (gay and lesbian). The blue represents sexual attraction to the opposite sex only (heterosexual) and the resultant overlap colour purple represents sexual attraction to both sexes (bi)

Transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex.

ASEXUAL

Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity.

The black stripe represents asexuality; the gray stripe represents gray-aces and demisexuals; the white stripe represents allies; and the purple stripe represents community.
