Upcoming Site Changes and Your Involvement
About a year and a half ago, we posted a journal discussing how DeviantArt’s acquisition would grant us the resources to make many positive changes for the site.  Thus far, a lot of such improvements haven’t been entirely obvious — like the many new hires across all departments (we've more than doubled our staff!) or upgrades to the tools we use behind-the-scenes.  All of this was done in order to bring you big-ticket changes, including a much-improved and redesigned site. We've approached the redesign with a lot of consideration, which is why it’s been in development for so long.  Not only do there continue to be len

Hero-bg by dtab428Fly your flag with DeviantArt as we celebrate the #PluralityOfPride! Join the conversation and check out some of the LGTBQ+ artists we’re featuring for #PrideMonth.

Like the many flags we fly to represent who we are, Pride Month is about celebrating the strength of our plurality, the many identities that complete us and make all of us great, and how they come together to build our common humanity.

Occurring in the same month as the Stonewall Riots (on June 28, 1969) where people were beaten simply for being who they are, Pride Month is meant to be a celebration of coming together in light of this violent beginning. This year, DeviantArt is proud to honor deviants of all identities who, over the years, have helped build us into an ever-more inclusive community where we can just be.

  • Be who we are, without fear.
  • Be different, even if we can't always be in real life.
  • Be ourselves, celebrated and supported by those around us.

Over the years, different LGBTQ+ communities around the world have created various flags, representing the truly diverse nature of this ever-changing community as they seek to find wholeness, strength, and unity. These flags include:

Rainbow Flag

This flag -- the most well-known of them all -- has undergone many iterations, adding and removing colors along the way. Introduced in 1978, it has come to represent the strength, life, spirit and nature of the entire LGBTQ+ movement.

Intersex Flag

Created in 2013, this flag avoids pink and blue, the traditional gender colors, by using purple and yellow to represent the wholeness and potential of intersex people.

Transgender Flag

Introduced in 1999, this flag represents trans people’s continuing quest for completion in their lives.

Bisexual Flag

First flown in 1998, this flag represents visibility and attraction to men and women.

Asexuality Flag

Introduced in 2010, this flag represents the community shared by asexuals and their allies as they redefine attraction.

Pansexual Flag

Created in 2010, this flag uses pink, blue, and yellow to highlight the endless possibility of attraction these people feel.

No matter where you belong on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, or even if you're simply an LGBTQ+ ally, we strongly believe that Pride Month can be a celebration of our collective strength and courage as the community we are and aspire to be. Whether through the art we make, the rights we fight for, or the relationships we build, Pride is about rising above challenges as our colors fly ever higher.

We invite you to celebrate Pride with us, sharing all the wonderful aspects that make DeviantArt different and diverse!

All deviants who comment on this journal by answering the three prompts below will receive a special Pride badge that will display on your Profile.

DeviantArt staff may remove a badge if a deviant’s comment or contribution doesn’t demonstrate the true spirit of Pride.

  • How are you are celebrating Pride this year?
  • Tell (or show!) us what your Pride flag would look like.
  • Why do you think flags are an important symbol for marginalized communities?

This year i am celebrating it by embracing a female character ive played online for years as my true self and who i was meant to be all along, my flag would look black with some teal running through it. I think flags are good because it gives people a way to notice eachother if someone has it on their page we can see it as a symbol of hey someone like me.

This year I am celebrating Pride with my transgender and other LGBTQ+ siblings and doing what I can to help them in my local community. My flag is a beautiful blend of the transgender and lesbian flags, representing all the beauty of who I am. Flags are an indicator that we are here, we are proud and we will not be forced to hide who we are again!
