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!
The Questioning Pride Flag is one such flag, which you may have seen flying at any number of pride celebrations throughout the world, from Tampa to Budapest to Ottawa…or anywhere in between!
Questioning is the act of figuring out what one’s gender, sexual orientation, romantic orientation, or any aspect of one’s identity is by investigating, educating, or exploring with it.
There are many questioning pride flags, but most have some form of question mark incorporated into the design. The version created by Swocks, the owner of a large LGBTQ+ Hangout community, was first used on August 18th, 2020, and is now the most frequently seen with a pastel flag with the white question mark over it represents questioning pride.
