Pride Flags: Guide to Different Gender Associations and Sexualities

Pride Flags: Guide to Different Gender Associations and Sexualities
The month of June is one of our favorite months of the year. The beginning of summer, Gemini and Cancer season, and of course PRIDE.
Attending pride parades and see the rainbow flag everywhere can't help but make us feel positive, supportive and heard. But did you know that there are more flags than just the rainbow one we know and love that represent the different sexualities and genders out there?
As part of our #BEAWARE movement, we are here to educate you as much as we can on different topics regarding sexuality and health and pride month is no exception. 
Gay / Homosexual
The traditional gay flag pride flag that the LGBT community decided on in 1979. Representing the whole spectrum of sexualities and gender associations.


Not exclusively sexually attracted to people of one particular gender and attracted to both men and women. The flag shows the overlap of the stereotypical colors for girls and boys.


A person who experiences sexual, romantic, physical, and/or spiritual attraction for members of all gender identities and expressions. The flag has colors that represent pansexuality's interest in all genders as partners. The pink represents women, yellow nonbinary and gender-nonconforming people, and the blue is for men.


Someone who is sexually and/or romantically attracted to multiple genders but not necessarily all of them. A middle ground between bisexuality and pansexuality, it is centered more around attractions to femininity and masculinity rather than gender itself. The pink represents attraction to females; the blue for males. The green is for an attraction to those who don't conform to either gender.


Someone who has no sexual feelings or associations. The flag doesn't just represent asexuality but many ace identities. The black represents asexuality, grey represents grey-asexuality and demisexuality, white represents non-asexual partners and allies, and purple represents community.

Lipstick Lesbian

A gay female/lesbian who favors a glamorous, traditionally female style. It is the most feminine pride flag with different shades of pink, purple and red.


An umbrella term for anyone whose sex assigned at birth and gender identity does not correspond in the expected way; including transitioned or transitioning from living as one gender to another. The light blue is the traditional color for baby boys, pink is for girls, and the white in the middle is for those who are transitioning, those who feel they have a neutral gender or no gender, and those who are intersexed.


A person who identifies psychologically as a gender/sex other than the one to which they were assigned at birth. Colors are similar to that of the transgender flag.


Refers to someone whose gender identity falls on the spectrum between male and female. The flag highlights androgyny with lavender, agender identities with white, and nonbinary people with green.

Gender Fluid

Refers to someone whose gender identity changes over time from one end of the spectrum to the other or a dynamic mix of male and female. The flag features colors associated with femininity, masculinity, and everything in between. The pink stands for femininity. The white represents the lack of gender. The purple represents the combination of masculinity and femininity. The black symbolizes all genders, including third genders. The blue reflects masculinity.

Gender Non-Binary

Someone who does not identify exclusively as male or female. The yellow symbolizes gender outside a binary. The white, a mix of all colors, represents those with many or all genders. Purple stands in for those who feel both binary male and female or fluid between them. The black is for the agender community, without sexuality or color.


A combination of chromosomes, gonads, hormones, internal sex organs, and genitals that differs from the two expected patterns of male and female. The colors show the different genders and the blurring shows the combining of the two.


A heterosexual and/or cisgender person who supports equal civil rights, gender equality, and LGBTQ social movements, and challenges homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.

So whatever you associate with, we hope you leave the month into the rest of the year with more awareness and an open heart to the different associations and communities around you.

Happy Pride!
