I found this moment quite symbolic as I stumbled across these two girls intertwined with each other, hiding underneath a Pride rainbow flag as they shared a private moment together. In a way it shows how they feel protected underneath the rainbow, free from prejudice and labelling. In another light it could show them hiding from the world underneath what they find safe, but either way I think this is my favourite photo from London Pride, 2015.
reddit has a white canvas that any user can place one color pixel per 5/10 minutes
there’s currently negotiation fucking treaties between corners and patterns (which by the way have their own subreddits) and official allies/enemies and propaganda and cults
theres a dude pixeling a marriage proposal, the fucking blue corner has taken over everything (but lost in a battle with purple for the top left corner) there’s intense strategy regarding the rainbow, people trying to make a black border around the whole thing, the center is a void of white
there is also whatever the fuck this is
im terrified of it but it seems allied with the trans flag so i can trust it for now
I have more LGBTQIA+ Pride Beanies up in my Etsy Shop!
Let me know what you guys think of the designs! I know the Straight Ally and Intersex ones are not the same as the actual flag, due to ease of making, but I still think they turned out amazing. The colors are so fantastic, right?
straight/hetero flags/symbols and why they’re terrible
here’s 9 unique designs i got from googling ‘heterosexual flag’ and 'straight pride flag’.
okay so blue = man, pink = woman…. men love women who love tiny streaks of men with white bits? idk. this one’s probably the least offensive to me, but it’s just confusing
blue = men, pink = women again i guess… and white symbolises their blinding hetero love?
“straight ally” symbol. GO FALL IN A WELL. don’t use the pink triangle as a symbol unless you’re queer. i’m not even down with using it myself, i’m going to leave it to the use of lgbtq jewish people because it’s the rosa winkel, the symbol the nazis forced lgbtq people to wear in concentration camps. not all those people were also jewish, and the symbol has seen use as a gay right symbol (especially relating to aids activism) but personally i don’t feel like it’s “mine” to use.
monochrome flag. like… wat? it’s like they saw the rainbow flag and view heteroness as polar opposite, so turned it greyscale bc that’s the farthest they could get from the rainbow. all it speaks to is heteros rly rly rly wanting to separate themselves from being associated with us at all, y'know?
“supporter” symbol. okay it was probs made before some of the other flags got into wider use, but super-imposing a man/woman gender symbol over it bc your straightness needs to be at the forefront is tacky. allies/supporters needing their own symbols is tacky.
yawn boring “ew rainbows” again
the most popular straight ally flag. black + white = straight, a bit of rainbow to show u love the gays, and in a triangle to reference the rosa winkel in a ham fisted way. 0/10 would not recommend
red (women) and blue (men) in an infinity symbol. HETERO FOR ALL ETERNITY. FOREVER. inadvertently made this kinda similar to the bi flag with the purple, really, though i suppose thats meant to be a symbol of their amazing straight love all mixed together in harmony. it’s not subtle tbh it’s like a giant NO HOMO STRAIGHT 5EVA logo (note this is a straight flag, not a polyamorous flag though those also often feature the infinity symbol)
we get it we get it ur not rainbowy. tbh this seems more like u wanna love robots. i love robots too.
