Gilbert Baker RIP

Gilbert Baker, Creator of the Rainbow Flag, International Symbol of LGBTQ Pride, has Died at 65. Official obituary and opportunity to post condolences here.

Media reports:



My meditation space includes the rainbow colours of the flag designed by Gilbert Baker.I have used the rainbow flag colours as an expression of my queer spirituality in  private reflection and public art.

The rainbow flag colours have changed over the years of its rich history. The most moving and stirring story of the contemporary six colours of the flag feature in the words and music of Judy Small, Let the Rainbow Shine
