MK REWIND: History of the Pride Flag (EP 239)

Episode 239

23rd June 2020

In honor of Pride we revisit the history of the Pride flag, and why it’s okay that it changes for the community.

Episode notes

It’s PRIDE! And you might be seeing rainbow flags waiving all around your town but do you know the history of the Pride Flag? For this week’s MK Rewind we go back to our exploration of the history of the Pride Flag,  what it means, what it stands for, on the heels of in 2018 in  Philadelphia when they introduced new colors to the flag to address intersectionality for Black and Brown folks, and the controversy it created. But the history of the PRIDE Flag lends itself to adapting towards the needs of its community. Also why San Francisco became a Queer haven!
