LGBT pride (1978)

LGBT flagMain article: Rainbow flag (LGBT movement)

The rainbow flag, sometimes called 'the freedom flag', was popularized as a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) pride and diversity by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker in 1978. The different colours symbolize diversity in the gay community, and the flag is used predominantly at gay pride events and in gay villages worldwide in various forms including banners, clothing and jewelry. For the 25th Anniversary of the Stonewall riots held in 1996 in New York city a mile-long rainbow flag was created and post-parade cut up in sections that have since been used around the world.

Originally created with eight colors, pink and turquoise were removed for production purposes and as of 2006, it consists of six coloured stripes of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. It is most commonly flown with the red stripe on top, as the colours appear in a natural rainbow.

Where was the pink and turquoise? The current colors are a real rainbow in correct frequency order. (Also used as resistor codes).

slightly off topic, but do any of you guys know the real reasonings behind the closing of two of orlando's biggest gay bars, Full Moon Saloon and Southern Nights? will they be reopening ever, relocating? where do those crowds hang out now?

I've heard the gay population in Orlando has become large enough that they do not feel like they need a separate bar or night club to hang out so as not to be ostracized. Gays go to the same night clubs as everyone else. The need for separate bars has dwindled to the point that the gay bar crowd couldn't support the places.

Southern Nights re-opens tonight as REVOLUTION --- something about VIP entrance from 7:30 - 9:30 and then the rest of the world can check it out after 9:30 ;-)
