For many people, being LGBTQ+ can be difficult. Being open about who you are is a challenging point in many LGBTQ+ people’s lives, and many worry about what people will think, and who will or won’t accept them. Seeing LGBTQ+ supporters can be a meaningful reminder that it’s okay to be yourself.

At the beginning of the month, we asked deviants to create art with one of the six colors of the Pride flag. We’re overwhelmed and heart-warmed to see the outpouring of support of deviants and all of the stories that have been shared. Over 10,000 deviants submitted Pride art.

Today, we’re releasing a Pride flag made with love by the DeviantArt community — and you can now add it to your profile to show your support, or to just celebrate Pride!

We’d like to recognize and pay tribute to Gilbert Baker, who is the creator of the rainbow flag, an LGBTQ+ activist, and a fellow artist. Baker passed away on March 31st, but his memory lives on in every life he’s inspired.

I am so psyched to be donning this flag on my profile.  I hope that in the future there will be an opportunity to acquire a rainbow badge as well :)

Oh dear lord, comments like these only fuel further division. If we are REALLY going to make progress then we need to stop demonizing the other, this goes on both sides: extreme religious individuals here need to stop telling all lgbt people must die and all extreme lgbt individuals need to stop saying all religious people are stupid. If you look through some of these comments you'll find few but amazingly intellectual civil debates between them which actually started off as some flammatory comment - it just shows that someones mind can be swayed if the other is willing to not be condescending but open up and educate on an equal level. This fingerprinting nonsense we do is like fueling the fire for war rather than be willing to compromise. And I don't know why the idea of being religious and LGBT is such a foreign concept in addition to the fact that not all religious people are homophobes and not all homophobes are religious people. As someone who is bi and Christian it's strange that people like me are called"fucking fags" by extreme religious homophobes yet "sky-daddy idiots" to the lgbt community. Whatever happened to tolerance?

You kind of already got something about it, but the whole part about "there is no God anyway" is more likely to get people mad anyway, so you'd be more likely to attract negative comments. I honestly don't really care if you believe in any religion or hate them all, but if you're trying to get religious zealots to leave this alone, that phrase would probably have the opposite effect.

If you want religious folks to respect you, then you should respect religious folks :P You are no better than the "evil homophobes" if you act this way. It's kinda contradictory to demand respect for gay people, and then immediately bash religious people.

Well, you should at least try to, or else your points will not get across. It just makes you look like an ass. (not saying you are one of course.)


And "I find it difficult to respect any sort of religion" is kinda no different than "I find it difficult to respect an LGBT person" basically "religiophobia" or whatever


still an ethnic group

As much money as you already paid to LGBT support organizations. It's probably quite a lot, seeing as it's absolutely pleasant and totally not dangerous to be born LGBT in your country.

I wonder if the giantess community can have our own month with our own flag and a Dveiantart event?
I would wonder the same thing about the straight community, but people who do that get needlessly attacked.

A fetish is not a sexuality.

So, it doesn't need a pride flag or month. :stare:

A fetish is not a sexuality c;

Being straight is already supported by every society by default.

But I don't see why you can't make your own profile flag for anything you might want, perhaps make a group for interested people etc.

Just because it doesn't have black and brown doesn't mean its racist.

The LGBT+ community welcomes people of color! The flag represents all of the community.

The flags' colors represent EVERYONE in the community, and that INCLUDES people of color. There is no need for other colors, since the flag represents everyone.

so apparently, each sexuality (and even gender identification!) has its' flag

heterosexual is Heterosexual Paw 
homosexual is Gay Pride Paw 
bisexual is Bi Paw
transgender is Transgender Paw

etc

why these color choices though? is there like any meaning behind it? :?

Yeah all these cute little flags exist because "let's reduce to absurdity that the rainbow represents a community of so many different people as a whole. No, let's go and divide everyone again, and put them in little neat drawers!" :/

not really answering my question, but i must agree all this "human labelling" is getting a bit out of hand (and is it really That necessary? especially in public??) ... though the flags are indeed cute, yes *^*

I'm glad we agree on better standing united, instead of labeling and dividing c:

As for the colors... the rainbow flag stands for ALL sexualities, not only homosexuality (that's what I meant by superfluous labeling, the rainbow is enough?). The bi flag is kinda obvious, but the rest? No clue xD The colors look as if someone simply played roulette. What do pink + yellow + turquoise have to do with anything? There are even khaki + black ones. And then ace people get in arguments with bi people because both claimed purple as part of their flag. Huh?

The meaning is either severe mental retardation or snowflake culture.

Rainbow is for LGBT+ alltogether. It's a rainbow because it includes all.
Hetero is black and white because (I think) it's to represent oposite genders.
Bisexual: Blue = male, red = female, and violet in the middle because it's a connection of both.
Transgender: "The stripes at the top and bottom are light blue, the traditional color for baby boys. The stripes next to them are pink, the traditional color for baby girls. The stripe in the middle is white, for those who are intersex, transitioning or consider themselves having a neutral or undefined gender. "
