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!
One such flag is the Graysexual Pride Flag – a flag you might already have seen flown at any number of pride festivals around the world, from Philadelphia to Geneva…and everywhere in between!
Graysexuality, also known as grey asexuality, gray-a, gray-ace, or grey-ace, is a word used to describe persons who identify as asexual but do not fall into one of the primary kinds of asexuality. Typically it is a person who experiences limited sexual attraction.
Milith Rusignuolo devised the first greysexual flag, which was uploaded to Wikipedia on June 21st, 2013. It was intended to represent someone starting with no sexual attraction (purple signifying asexuality), then going through a single episode of attraction (grey to white) with white indicating allosexuality from the asexual flag, and then returning to asexuality.
