‘[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 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….
