Gay pride or LGBTQIA+ pride is to highlight the increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTIA+) people as a social group.

 

As proud members of the LGBTQIA+ community, we first and foremost know a simple truth: love is love. Here at Wicked Dual, we will continue to do our part, promoting equality, dignity, and self-affirmation for all. Pride is more than a month for us, it’s a daily reminder of those that lived and died that we may simply love and be loved.

 

Bisexual Flag

 

The bisexual flag is a pride flag representing bisexual individuals and the bisexual community. The pink stripe represents attraction to the same gender, the blue stripe represents attractions to different genders, and the resultant overlap color, purple, represents attraction regardless of sex or gender.

It was designed by Michael Page in 1998 to increase the visibility of bisexuals, among society as a whole and within the LGBTQ community, by giving the bisexual community a symbol comparable to the rainbow flag for the greater LGBTQ community. The first bisexual pride flag was unveiled at BiCafe's first-anniversary party on December 5, 1998.

 

Design and Colors

 

Page took the colors from an existing bisexual symbol and gave it his spin, saying:

In designing the Bi Pride Flag, I selected the colors and overlap pattern of the 'bi angles' symbol.

 

As Robyn Ochs, editor of Boston's Bi Women Quarterly has explained, the Biangles—or bisexuality triangles—were originally created for the Boston Bi Woman's Community by the artist Liz Nania, the design starting with the iconic pink triangle and adding Lavender and Blue.

Page describes the meaning of the pink, lavender, and blue (ratio 2:1:2) flag as this:

The pink color represents sexual attraction to the same sex only (gay and lesbian). The blue represents sexual attraction to the opposite sex only (straight) and the resultant overlap color purple represents sexual attraction to both sexes (bi)."

 

— Michael Page

 

Page describes the flag’s meaning in deeper terms, stating:

 

The key to understanding the symbolism of the Bisexual pride flag is to know that the purple pixels of color blend unnoticeably into both the pink and blue, just as in the 'real world,' where bi people blend unnoticeably into both the gay/lesbian and straight communities."

 

The flag is used in different aspect ratios. 2:3 and 3:5 are often used, in common with many other flags.

The stripe colors and widths, from top to bottom, are pink (40%), purple (20%), and blue (40%).The exact colors given by the designer are: PMS 226, 258, and 286.Their approximate HTML values are #D8097E, #8C579C, #24468E; their approximate RGB values are (216,9,126), (140,87,156), and (36,70,142), respectively. 

 

It is not patentedtrademarked, or service marked.

 

Licensing Controversy

 

In 1998, Page stated that the bisexual pride flag was "for free public and commercial use" and that it was "not patented, trademarked or service marked." In April 2020, BiNet USA falsely claimed that it was the sole copyright owner of the flag and flag colors, and said organizations and individuals who wished to use the flag for commercial purposes would be required to obtain a license from the organization, despite having nothing to do with the flag's design or creation. BiNet's claim and the resulting controversy were covered by Out and LGBTQ Nation, which cast doubt on BiNet's claim and noted that the flag is not eligible for copyright. 

On April 29, 2020, BiNet USA made a tweet claiming the Wikipedia page for the bisexual pride flag was inaccurate. BiNet USA ultimately ceased to use the flag on May 8, opting instead to use a different design.
