Freedom of speech is one of the pillars upon which this
great nation of ours is built. Freedom to be who we
are. The past ten years have seen a dramatic rise in
awareness and acceptance for the Gay and Lesbian
culture. Today we are out and we are proud! From
Primetime to Election time, our lives have come full
circle. And with this growth has come awareness.
Awareness gained through the media, through everyday
interaction, and through symbols that represent our
heritage. And the one symbol that is now the most
prominent is none other than the rainbow
Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco artist,
created the first rainbow flag in 1978. He designed a
flag with six stripes, representing the six colors of
the rainbow, as a symbol of Gay and Lesbian community
pride. Although the rainbow flag was initially used
only in San Francisco, it is now recognized worldwide,
not only as a symbol of Gay and Lesbian Pride, but for
Transgender and Bisexual Pride as well.
is in this spirit of the rainbow flag that we have
designed our wristband. Composed of silicon like the
Lance Armstrong Livestrong bracelets, and made with
brighter colors for greater visual impact, its a real
eye catcher! Wear it proudly at work, at the gym, out
for a night out on the town, or around campus. Show
everyone you support diversity with this hot new look.
style of wristband is a symbol of gay pride and support
for the GLBT community and their quest for equal rights.
