What is the Transgender pride flag and what does it mean?

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

  • Pink is the traditional colour used for baby girls, and represents femininity 
  • White represents non-binary, transitioning, and intersex folks
