Hey there, fabulous friends and allies!
Today, we’re stepping into a space of reverence and respect, because it’s November 20th – Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR). This day, we light up the less sparkly side of our glittering rainbow, as we remember and honor the transgender people who have lost their lives to violence and prejudice.
TDOR isn't just a day; it's a powerful reminder that while we've made some amazing strides, our march toward true equality is far from over. It's a call to action, to uplift and protect trans lives, wrapped in a promise that we won't rest until the world sees the beauty and strength in our vibrant trans community.
So, what can we do? First, let's educate and celebrate! Dive into the stories of trailblazing trans folks – from Marsha P. Johnson's revolutionary spirit to Laverne Cox's dazzling advocacy. Share their tales, wear your trans pride gear with gusto, and if you can, support trans-led organizations that are doing the heavy lifting every day.
And let's get creative! How about we craft a sea of handmade trans pride flags to wave in solidarity? Or maybe you're a whiz with a pen and can write letters of support to trans individuals and groups? Better yet, let's create art that reflects the triumphs and challenges of the trans journey – because we all know that art speaks volumes.
Tonight, many will hold vigils, lighting candles against the darkness. If you attend, bring your light – and let it be a beacon of hope, a signal that you stand with the trans community today and every day. If you're at home, light a candle by your window. It's a simple act, but imagine the warmth it carries across miles and hearts.
Hey there, beautiful souls of the internet! Welcome back to the "Live Life Out Loud" blog, where we celebrate diversity, love, and everything that makes us unique. Today, we're diving into the vibrant world of the Transgender Pride flag—a symbol that speaks volumes about identity, resilience, and the strength of the transgender community.
The Transgender Pride flag, created by transgender activist Monica Helms in 1999, is a symbol of transgender identity and visibility. With its five stripes—two light blue, two pink, and one white—the flag represents the transgender experience, including those who are non-binary or genderqueer. Each color holds significance, creating a beautiful tapestry of identity.
This flag plays a crucial role in raising awareness about transgender rights and issues. Displayed proudly during Transgender Awareness Week and Transgender Day of Visibility, it reminds us of the importance of celebrating transgender identities and advocating for equal rights.
Let's celebrate the strength of our transgender friends and family. Their stories are filled with courage and determination. The Transgender Pride flag is a symbol of their journey, their identity, and their place in our colorful, diverse world.
The Transgender Pride flag embodies identity, resilience, and the beauty of diversity. As we celebrate Pride in all its forms, let's remember the significance of this flag in the lives of our transgender siblings.
Let's continue to support transgender rights, raise awareness, and amplify transgender voices. Together, we'll create a world where everyone can live life out loud, unapologetically, and with pride.
Stay vibrant, stay proud, and always remember that love is love.
With love and rainbows,

Welcome to the colorful world of the Pride Rainbow flag! Here, every hue tells a tale of courage, love, and the unyielding pursuit of equality. Let's delve into the vibrant history and the heartfelt meanings behind this iconic banner.
Replica of the original eight-color rainbow flag design. In 1998, Baker recreated his eight-color design using identical construction methods for the 20th anniversary of the flag’s creation. Dyed cotton muslin on white muslin backing, Gilbert Baker Flag Collection (2002-41), GLBT Historical Society
It all started with a vision and some fabric in the hands of Gilbert Baker, a visionary artist, and activist, back in '78. In the midst of a burgeoning fight for LGBTQ rights, Baker gave a community its symbol of hope. Picture it: the first unfurling of the rainbow flag in the San Francisco breeze, a moment that's since been etched into the annals of history.
Baker's rainbow wasn't just pretty colors; each of the original eight stripes was a celebration of different facets of queer life—from hot pink representing sexuality to violet for spirit. It's a palette that painted a picture of the diversity within the LGBTQ community.
Like any good story, the flag's tale is filled with twists and turns. Economic and practical reasons saw the flag change to its current six stripes, but the spirit remained untouched. The ever-evolving flag now waves proudly in many forms, from the most recognized six colors to newer variants embracing inclusivity and intersectionality.
The Erie Pride Parade and Festival, hosted by the NWPA Pride Alliance, moves north in the 1400 block of State Street in Erie on June 25, 2022. Roughly 2,000 people marched to Perry Square for the festival. - GREG WOHLFORD/ERIE TIMES-NEWS
The Pride flag is our badge of honor, our armor in the fight for rights, and our flag of celebration in times of joy. It's as much at home in the hands of a parade marcher as it is on the profile picture of an online ally. This flag doesn't just symbolize history; it's a part of our daily lives.
Yes, our flag has faced its share of debates and discussions. It's stirred conversations about what it means to be inclusive and how best to represent an ever-growing and diverse community. These discussions are vital—they show that the flag, just like us, is alive and always ready to embrace more colors.
Every stripe, every color on the flag has countless stories behind it. For some, the red is a thread that connects us to the ones we've lost; for others, the green is the color of new beginnings and acceptance. These personal connections make the flag not just a symbol, but a storyteller.
As we wrap up our rainbow journey, remember that this flag is yours to wave, cherish, and share. It's a call to join hands, to celebrate who we are, and to keep the colors flying not just during Pride but every day. Because every time the flag soars, it carries with it our collective hopes and dreams.
If this splash of rainbow has sparked your interest, there's a whole spectrum of resources waiting for you. From the deep roots of our history to the vibrant branches of our current movements, there's always more to learn and ways to show your colors.

I made this design to resemble chalk writing on a blackboard. The kind of thing you see outside a restaurant or cafe that might offer curb side pick up.
There is some intentional innuendo that perhaps YOU might be available for curbside pickup. Get his design on a variety of clothing, masks, and other items. They make great gifts for that thirsty friend who is always on the prowl.See more

NWPA Pride Alliance is unable to hold their annual Pride events this year because of COVID-19. As the winner of their t-shirt design contest for the last 3 years, they asked me if I was willing to partner with them this year to create a design that we could sell exclusively online. I was of course thrilled to help!
The design selected includes two bands of assorted LGBTQIA+ Pride Flags circling a digital representation of the world. Now more than ever we need to come together while staying apart. A portion of all sales of this design on any of the MANY products being offered goes to NWPA Pride Alliance, Inc. in north western Pennsylvania.Check out all of the products here
