I wanted to create a short, simple guide to the history & origins of the pride flags and get people to learn more about the symbols of our community.
I know this isn’t the complete list, but I wanted to start this off with these 7. Hopefully, in the future I will update and add some more. This has been a long research & creation process. I’m open to suggestions.

So the Indian Supreme Court passed a judgement today which basically states that freedom of sexual orientation is now a fundamental right in the country. And any discrimination on basis of sexual orientation will now be taken as unconstitutional and against the law.
This from a country where homosexuality was illegal till date. Like, today I am literally shook™ but so, so proud of India.
So Toppdogg’s Hansol has come out as Asexual and i just want to say how proud of him i am! It’s so terrifying and incredibly scary to come out and im so glad that he is comfortable enough with himself to tell his fans & the public he is asexual, I wish nothing but love and support for him from international fans and korean fans. I hope him coming out shuts up homophobes who act like all idols are straight and also encourages other idols to come out as whatever they identify as and shows them that being who they are is ok!
It wasn’t necessarily easy for me to come out. But I couldn’t betray myself or lie about myself. I was on The View not long before I came out. Barbara said something like, “You’ve never been married. Have you just never found the right guy?” I said, “Now Barbara, you and I both know that’s not the reason.” And she just shut right up. Those kind of things happened a lot. From the 1970’s forward, I wouldn’t lie. I just couldn’t. - Lily Tomlin
