The mainstream LGBTQIA+ movement is white centered, so the most marginalized needing support are routinely ignored and silenced. We'll be using the new pride flag to help places like Cookie's Joint raise funds to support TQ PoC directly on their terms.

Hi, I'm Julia, the concept designer of the New Pride Flag, newprideflag.com, which is meant to center TQ PoC and recognizes the history of the modern Pride movement.

 

The flag was meant to help the LGBTQIA+ movement show Trans and Queer PoC that you actually want equality for all of us and not just the chosen few under a white supremacist-based hierarchical society.

 

...BUT y'all fucked it up...

 

I mean seriously with comments like "Centering PoC is not the right way or the right message" while Black Trans women are disproportionately targeted and murdered at higher rates than any other LGBTQIA+ group *eye roll* Maybe one day it will click that we all have privileges over others and when we center the most vulnerable, we all benefit (sit with that a little while, understand it, and absorb it...).

 

...But for now,  we're going back to direct support. This means that I want the flag to do what it was meant to do since its inception, which is to support TQ PoC directly.

 

The organizations that I'd like to support with the flag design are Cookie's Joint and Jardin de las Mariposas - both working directly with and supporting TQ PoC....particularly in crisis support.

 

SO, donate a dollar or not to this campaign....your choice..., but what we will attempt to do is not make this flag a gross display of performative allyship - there's other tacky rebooted pride flags winning at that hot mess.

 

So, anyway, whatever we raise will be used to print things like 2x3 inch stickers of the new pride flag design to then send to Cookie's Joint (free of charge, no strings attached) so they have full control of raising funds with the design...

 

That's all I got. I hope this flag becomes a symbol of true social evolution, and safety, and support for TQ PoC and those that understand why it's important to put others above ourselves when we are fighting the same fight.

 

You can totally download the flag for free via: newprideflag.com

 

Thanks for your support.
