Pride Month is the month that amplifies the voices and rights of the LGBTQI+ community. The month celebrates the community’s culture. Throughout the month, by the means of live theater, live performances, drag shows, and parades, the community pays homage to the people of the community who had lost their lives in making the community recognized and have succumbed to deadly diseases like AIDS/HIV. Over the years, it has become more of a political activism cum celebration.

The pride symbol is nothing but the well-known six-colored Rainbow Flag, created by the artist Gilbert Baker in 1978. The rainbow flag is not just a mere collage of colors but also has a meaning behind it. Each color of the rainbow flag represents an essential aspect of one’s identity. Red symbolizes life, orange signifies healing, yellow represents sunshine, green reflects nature, blue showcases harmony, and purple is symbolic spirit. Originally, the flag had eight colors: hot pink and turquoise, which represented sex and art, respectively. However, later these colors were dropped by Baker due to production issues of these two colors.
