Read the full title The "#LetUsServe" USA + TRANSGENDER Pride DOUBLE Flag Pin Badge for Lapels, Shirts, Backpacks, Hats, etc...
Materials: nickel, enamel, paint, love, pride, metal
This pin is named for the estimated 13,000 active-duty service members who might lose their commissions, promotions, pensions, careers, or sanity, over a very ignorant and uninformed ban taking effect soon on transgender service members in the United States Armed Forces. #LetUsServe is a reminder that we have what it takes, because we’re already doing it.
20% of proceeds for April (including all backorders) are being made as a personal donation from me to SPART*A, an organization of transgender and allied active service members, veterans, families, and supporters, who are going above and beyond to prove not only the dignity but the distinction of our service members, who are just trying to be their best possible selves as they protect us, save our lives, and advance their own carers through duty and service to others. Learn more at SpartaPride.org!
****BACKORDER NOTE: Black and silver are almost sold out of the initial batch. These went really fast. If you get a "backorder" one, these will take 3-4 weeks, but please do order as this helps me gauge how many to make for batch #2. I’m adjusting the shipping to reflect this now. Any other pins ordered, even at the same time, will ship separately.****
I put these flags together these because sometimes your queer patriot street-cred comes from gender identity and sexual orientation too! Or maybe you're just a huge ally.
WHOAH!!! There's a transgender flag? Yep, it's the blue/pink/white/pink/blue flag, and it was designed in 1999 by Monica Helms of Atlanta, Georgia. She's a US Navy submarine service veteran and trans activist.
***Here's how I explain the transgender flag to people:
If the 6-stripe rainbow flag (and there was an 8-stripe rainbow flag with pink and turquoise, which evolved into the 6, but that's another story) were the UNITED STATES of QUEER flag, then you'd understand that lots of different identity labels have their own STATE flags, as the US States do.
Well, in this analogy, Transgender is kind of like Puerto Rico. It's definitely a small subset of the United States population, and while it is part of the United States in may respects, it's also it's also actually its own independent country too. It has its own advocacy needs, that are sometimes different than the mainland LGB community. Furthermore, like Puerto Rico, it's not too uncommon to feel like it gets a bit overlooked by the mainland LGB community, almost as if it doesn't exist when it's inconvenient. Like when a big storm comes through, for example.
I hope you've learned a little about the trans flag. Now have your very own!***
Show and share your pride or allyship! Whether a subtle fashion accessory on your lapel, or for accessorizing nearly any article of clothing or luggage imaginable, this is a gorgeous combination pin.
Goes great alongside some of the other products you can find here at this store, including transgender pins, bisexual pins, etc...
Great for use as a pushpin or thumb tack as well on cork boards.
My personal favorite uses for this discrete yet bold statement piece is on lanyards for your work badge, conference credentials, or concert backstage passes.
Size: Pin is approximately 25mm (1”) at its widest, and a little over 20mm (3/4”) as tall. The stud and the clasp extend backward approximately 10mm, a little under half an inch.
(Designed, sold, packaged, and shipped with LOVE by an actual transgender person, me!!! My amazing ally of a little sister helps sometimes too.)
Items may vary slightly by batch in coloration/backing/etc... from the exact images shown, but I'll try to keep the pics up to date. If more than one pin is shown in an image, they are either variations you can choose between (like silver or gold backing) or are other products on my page.

These pins are beautiful and powerful!!! Thank you! I truly appreciate the craftsmanship and they will be worn by staff at the Salt Lake City VA to help to create a welcoming and affirming environment for our lgbt Veterans and staff.
Just what I was looking for! Thank you so much for making these. I am a trans non-binary spouse of a U.S. Army officer who is due for promotion soon and I look forward to wearing this at the ceremony, as well as many future events. Thank you for playing this part in helping me to feel like I can be more visible and visibly supportive of all trans people within our military community.
I received my pins quickly and securely packaged with a little handwritten note from Hannah, which was a special touch. I can show my community that I support #transtroops and I wear my pin with pride!
Arrived promptly and was as advertised, in perfect condition. Beautiful little pin, and seller even included a handwritten note. Thank you!!
