While most of us are aware of the iconic rainbow flag, there are many more LGBTQ pride flags that symbolize the diverse sex, sexuality, attraction, and gender identities within our beautiful queer community.
Even while most LGBT people continue to identify with the LGBT rainbow flag, many also want to fly their own flag alongside it.
You can imagine like the rainbow flag is like the national flag: everybody’s underneath that. But each group, like each state, has their own individual flag. Because, you know, representation is fundamental!
An omnisexual is a person who has romantic, sexual, or affectional desires for people of all genders and sexes. This is similar to pansexuality; however, there are differences between these two terms. Omnisexual people are not gender blind, and they see and acknowledge gender. Omnisexual people are sexually attracted to different genders and sexual orientations, but unlike pansexuality, the gender of the people they are attracted to matters to some degree.
Like most queer identities, omnisexuals have an exclusive LGBTQ+ flag that they fly which includes shades of pink, purple, and blue. The omnisexual pride flag was created by @pastelmemer in 2015; however, they never explained the exact meaning of the colors.
That has not stopped many omnisexual individuals from putting their feelings to each color, and the current semi-consensus to what these colors mean is:
- Pink stands for attraction to women.
- Blue stands for attraction to men.
- Purple stands for attraction to non-binary people.
