I am profoundly saddened that friend, hero and creator of the rainbow 🌈 flag, Gilbert Baker died today.
‘We are a people, a tribe if you will. And flags are about proclaiming power, so it’s very appropriate. We needed something beautiful, something from us. The rainbow is so perfect because it really fits our diversity in terms of race, gender, ages, all of those things.’ – Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017)
