What is the Transgender pride flag and what does it mean?| Updated on
Transgender pride flag
Transgender folks don’t identify as the gender assigned to them at birth (by doctors and/or their parents). It’s now used as an umbrella term to include non-binary and genderqueer folks as well, though not all of them prefer to use the “transgender” label.
The transgender pride flag was designed in 1999 by Monica Helms, a trans woman.
Meaning behind the colours:
- Blue is the traditional colour used for baby boys, and represents masculinity
- Pink is the traditional colour used for baby girls, and represents femininity
- White represents non-binary, transitioning, and intersex folks
