What is the Genderqueer Flag? A Comprehensive Guide
The Genderqueer Flag Pin holds a significant place in our LGBTQ+ pin collection, serving as a symbol of diverse identities. Each color on the flag - lavender, white, and chartreuse green - carries its own unique meaning, which we'll explore in this article.
The Meaning Behind the Genderqueer Flag Colors
The Genderqueer Flag, designed by Marilyn Roxie in 2011, includes three colors, each representing a distinct aspect of the genderqueer identity:
- Lavender: A mix of blue and pink, traditional colors associated with males and females. Lavender represents androgyny and the spectrum of queer identities.
- White: A neutral color, representing agender identities.
- Chartreuse Green: The inverse of lavender, symbolizing identities that transcend and do not refer to the binary.
Together, these colors form a flag that celebrates the multidimensional nature of genderqueer identities and the freedom to self-identify.
Our Genderqueer Flag Pins
Embodying these colors and values, our Genderqueer Pride Flag Pin is a true symbol of pride. Made with the highest quality materials, our pins are perfect for displaying on jackets, bags, or any fabric surface. Whether you identify within the genderqueer spectrum or want to show your support for the community, our pin is a wonderful addition to any collection.
The Creation of the Genderqueer Flag
The Genderqueer Flag was thoughtfully designed by advocate and writer Marilyn Roxie, an influential figure in the community. Roxie's design encapsulates the complexity and diversity of genderqueer identities and provides visibility for the genderqueer community and related identities.
Supporting the Zebra Coalition
As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community, we're donating this month to the Zebra Coalition. This Orlando-based organization provides services to homeless and at-risk LGBTQ+ youth, meeting their unique needs.
Our Genderqueer Flag Pin is more than a piece of jewelry; it's a symbol of solidarity and awareness. Though it's a new addition to our store, we're eager to hear your thoughts once you've added it to your collection!
