I’ll explain later. But in short. In talking about the spectrum of color, it seemed very important to look back at the Betsy Ross of Gay Pride – Gilbert Baker. He hand-dyed all eight strips of the first two flags he made. Each color signifies an element of identity. I wish I could commission Mr. Nordine to write a poem about Mr. Baker’s flag and the significance of the eight colors. I need to think about it a little more. But in short: the pink and the turquoise stripes need to be restored pronto. Power to the people.
