For the last day of Pride month, here’s another release of these same inclusive pride flag redesigns. I hope that, at some point in the future, these will be more widely used to represent the queer, trans and intersex communities that I love so much to unify us and liberate us against the constructs of cisheteronormativity and to honor the queer, trans and intersex people of color who have been so instrumental to improving queer, trans and intersex visibility.

In memory of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, I’m re-releasing this set of Pride flags to honor the Black and Brown trans and queer femme people who spearheaded the fight for queer and trans rights so that the rest of our community can have the rights that we now have.

These are redesigns for the Pride flag for the sake of inclusion.

The background contains the common colors of various Pride flags of the trans community since they form the backbone of our community. The striped colors in front are the conglomeration of the rainbow and bi pride flags, which contain the common colors of Pride flags in the queer/LGB+ spectrum. In front is the violet intersex symbol, which holds various icons that contain Black and Brown stripes to represent the Black and Brown people who are often at the forefront of the actions pivotal to liberation for the entire community.

This is representation and recognition without strict coercion, where Black and Brown people are recognized for what we’ve done for the community and what our forebears did to liberate us all.

The main flags are the heartbeat (for obvious reasons), the fist, and the upside-down triangle designs. I also included icons for various subsets of the queer/trans/intersex/LGBTQ+ community, such as neurodiverse, Jewish, and Muslim QTI/LGBTQ+ folks.

Let me know about your thoughts on the design, if you please, and give any solid, useful critiques. Thanks.

Big thanks to queerwitchqueenofcolor for the inspiration for these designs!

Since it’s World Mental Health Day today and National Coming Out Day tomorrow maybe I should walk you through my diagnosis from the end of 2012.

Y’all already know I’m autistic which is the 299.80 part (both PDD-NOS and Asperger’s were considered autism at the time).

Now with 309.28 (depression and anxiety), I lied to the psychologist and didn’t tell her that I was gay (I came out the next year though) and how being in the closet adversely affected my mental health, it turned out to be the right decision since the therapist I was with for a few months told me that “I would make a woman happy some day” about 20 minutes after I told him I’m gay.

An adjustment disorder basically means temporary, but I still get this shit to this day.

Anyway.

301.9 is PD-NOS, which pretty much means I have symptoms from different personality disorders (e.g. obsessive compulsive, schizoid) so it’s just best to say I have a personality disorder in general.

But what’s a personality disorder? It’s given to you if you exhibit behavior that isn’t “normal” (schizoid means aloof for instance and not schizophrenic) so “normal” people think there’s something wrong with you and don’t wanna be friends and shit 😕 Which lead to the peer relational problems 🤷🏽‍♂️

And the 60 means it’s not a 100 so y’all gotta make up for the 40 😏

But yeah, this is just my view of what these mean, I’ve come to terms with accepting who I am and managing the depression and anxiety as they come.
