Today as we celebrate the 21st Birthday of the Bisexual Pride Flag, we also should talk about how it’s creation is intertwined with the History of the creation of the Transgender Pride Flag

Here’s a video from the YouTube Channel of Trans-activist Monica Helms, the creator of the Trans Pride Flag where as she explains –

“Many people asked me about the history of the Trans Flag, so I made this video to give people the information. This is a remake, with new images and more effects. It is fun to watch.”

17 thank-you notes to the creators of the bisexual flag:

This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Bisexual Flag. The flag was first unveiled by activist Michael Page on December 5, 1998. While Page led the effort, it was actually a Bi+ Community-wide Project which  involved many people including a group of activists from BiNet USA, as well as from other places who were involved for its creation.

To mark this important day, the UK’s Gay Star News collected Seventeen Thank-you Notes to the creators of the Bisexual+ Pride Flag.

What Do the Colours mean?
❤️ = from the colour of the infamous Pink Triangles represents same/similar sex attractions
💜 = where Pink & Blue overlap is a color gradient of different shades of Lavender/Purple representing the possibility of attraction anywhere along the entire gender spectrum
💙 = represents different sex attractions

‘[Monica] Helms came up with the trans flag in 1999, after she met Michael Page, the creator of the bisexual flag and he told her “the trans community needs a flag too”. The idea for the design came to her quickly, hoping that the colours would mean something to people, with the white stripe in the centre representing the non-binary community.’ (source)

The fact that the trans flag was inspired by the creator of the bi flag and explicitly includes nonbinary people means so much to be as a nonbinary bisexual.

I swear to god writing a children’s nonfiction book on the history behind each pride flag would be like printing money….

When you mix blue and red it makes Purple.  Purple isn’t referred to as half blue and half red.  It is it’s own color in and of itself and it has a name, Purple!

And sometimes depending on how it’s mixed, it turns out more red or more blue, but it is still referred to as Purple.  And sometimes depending on how it’s mixed, it can be lighter or sometimes its darker, but it is still referred to as Purple.  And sometimes many of these different shades and hues also have their own names, but even then they are all also

still referred to as Purple!


The same goes for Bisexual+ people and the Bi+ Community.  Still here, still queer, and not going to disappear.
