so im a bit confused about the new pride flag because imo race is separate from sexuality and gender? and of course poc are a huge part of the lgbt community, but personally I'm not quite sure what the point of the new flag is? Sorry if I seem stupid >-<

it’s to point out that lgbt people of color are welcomed in the community. just a special effort to say “hey, we appreciate and recognize you”
