It’s the 2018 Philly flag combo with the black and brown stripes!

This is a great supplemental flag to the standard rainbow pin, especially for opportunities to highlight the tremendous contribution and sacrifice, as well as the abject targeting with violence, of black and brown individuals within the queer community. We need to look out for one another, and the world is out to get transgender women of color above all, this cannot be ignored.

Please realize though that wearing this pin alone, or replacing the six stripe flag in all of your media with it, does not in itself make you woke or politically correct or anything more than trendy if you are not doing the work.

Also remember that racism can exist in ways beyond apparent skin color, between people of similar apparent skin colors, and in both directions between individuals of any given race. Not all people who look the same have the same racial experience either, like many people of Hispanic or European Jewish descent who look fair and are suddenly being lumped in with some of the most racist people on the planet because a few loud “woke” individuals are denying others’ individuality in favor of stereotypes. Really woke indeed.

People can be blends of different races, including of blacks and browns, and also white, Jewish, and beyond. Adding two stripes to a flag is symbolic perhaps, but perhaps it has flaws too in whether it fully encompasses rather than obfuscates all the experiences within our community. I feel the rainbow on its own, that one could look up and see through the haze on a misty day from anywhere on the planet, was a pretty remarkable choice on its own.

In any case, wave the flag that makes you feel like you! It should always stand as a challenge to us to make the world more loving and more unified, rather than a victory lap.

I am making these because I know people desire them and feel they are meaningful, not because I personally feel it is mine to fly, or should be flown to represent me. We all need to do some soul-searching on that. I invite you to join me.


==================================
The regular description.


I put these flags together these because sometimes your queer 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 intersectional 8- (or 6-) stripe rainbow flag (and there was an 8-stripe rainbow flag with pink and turquoise, which evolved into the 6, then back to 8, 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 taken advantage of-that's a nice way to put it--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 silver-backed six-stripe rainbow to show your pride.

Bolder colors and silver backing help this go with anything.

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 half 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.

Absolutely love the pin, it is elegant, beautifully made, and a great way to make a statement while keeping it professional. My pin made it's debut at a virtual City Council Committee Meeting while I addressed the committee about reallocating police funding.
