While many of us are now familiar with the famous rainbow flag, there are also other LGBQT+ flags that each represent the different sex, sexuality, attraction, and gender diversities within our fabulous community.
Even if most queer people identify with the rainbow flag itself, many also desire to fly their own particular flag alongside it. Because, y’all, representation is crucial!
The second and now more commonly used Drag Pride flag resulted from the Austin International Drag Festival (AIDF) 2016. It has a crown and stars along with three vertical stripes. Thankfully we also know what the drag pride flag colours mean:
- Purple signifies a passion for drag.
- White signifies how one’s body and face become a blank slate to change and create characters on.
- Blue signifies self-expression and loyalty.
- The crown signifies leadership within the community.
- The stars signify the many forms of drag.
