Queer(2)

Queer is a term that has been embraced and reclaimed by some of the MOGAI community as a symbol of pride, representing individuals who fall out of the gender and sexuality “norms”. Note: Not every MOGAI person likes or uses the term queer and you should never refer to someone as queer unless they specifically tell you that's what they want. 
The pinks and blues next to each other represent same-gender attraction, the orange and green are for nb, and black and white for ace/aro/agender spectrum people as well!

Hello !

So um

I love this flag but a lot of people told me that it looks like the MAP (ped*phile) flag and it does a little, so I was wondering if I could make another version of this flag but in a way that doesn't look like the map flag ? Or you could, idk ^^' It's just that it's triggering to some queer people and it would be great if they could have a flag that is't triggering to them (contact me on my twitter @bobaphic please, I'm never on deviantart usually so I probably won't see your answer)

The map flag was made after this. So if anything they copied this flag

no offense but the 'map flag' is not a real single thing, it's a gross 4chan 'meme' with many forms that abusers took advantage of, and should not be taken seriously as a LGBT flag. yes they are real and harmful people but i dont think we should respect their color palette. it's just pink white blue and yellow, come on. basically the trans flag with yellow added. They probably chose those colors on purpose to begin with.


you can totally make your own flags, even ones based on this. nobody can own a design of colored stripes. Maybe credit pastelmemer if it uses many of the same colors, but you are truly free to make whatever you want. It's queerness, after all. No rules!

Where’s the other queer flags?

Disculpen por hablar en español. La bandera debería tener una descripción: año de creación, los significados de los colores,...

Is this the official queer flag or just one you created? I haven't found anything on the Internets suggesting there is an official one.

There is no official queer flag that I know of. This flag was created by a former mod.

I was going to use this flag for a school project (it's going up on instagram with a quote on it) and was wondering how to credit Pastelmemer for it

Just link to my tumblr- pastelroswell.tumblr.com :3
Amazing flag! Is the black included, and if, why?
Pastelmemer's avatar
To represent asexuals, aromantics and those on the agender spectrum!
Pride-Flags's avatar
Yeah, and I'm not sure, Pastelmemer created it so kit may now!

I FREAKIN' LOVE THIS FLAG (and its alternative). I was lookihg through your orientation folder (there's A LOT!) and added a few to my favorites because i thought they may or may not apply to me. I was hoping i might describe myself to you, and see if you think any of your existing flags/descriptions matches me best, and if not maybe you could make a combo flag specifically for my case - which isn't complicated, but i just didn't see anything while i was browsing that rang 100% with me. Would that be alright with you?
Pride-Flags's avatar
Sure! I'm always up for helping/making new flags :D
ZippersAreBisexual's avatar
YAAAAAYYY, thank you so much! Do you want me to send my description in a note, or just another reply?
Pride-Flags's avatar
Either way is fine!

Okay, cool!

So I'm cisgender female, and I identify as sexually&romantically QUEER. Lately, I've been leaning towards wanting a girlfriend or female-based partner (I say "female-based" and not "feminine" because I don't entirely know how I feel about being with trans-girls in a sensual way - friends for sure, I'm really friendly and accepting and caring). I once identified as POLYSEXUAL/ROMANTIC, but it was really difficult to make an actual list of what kind of people I specifically liked and didn't like, hence my identity of QUEER because it is generic/open/vague. I dislike extreme masculinity and extreme femininity (for a partner), but I do not care what my partner's orientation is. Internally, I really enjoy the ideal of seemingly-sensual activities in a platonic way; cuddling, light kisses on cheeks/foreheads/hands, hand-holding perhaps (although I prefer to link arms or wrap arms around waists). However, even though I have confessed that to my lovey-dovey college squad friends, I still have trouble outwardly acting in such a way. I also really love pet names (darling, deary, sweetheart, honey, etc.) in general.

I think that's it. So, I want the focus to be the queer flag (cause it's awesome!), but maybe with a dash or colored symbol like "leaning towards women-like folk", "lovey-dovey", or just something else that is unique to me.

If you need more info, please don't hesitate to ask. I really appreciate your even considering putting something together for me!

Do you think you can make a sketch of what you want? Like the queer flag as a base and maybe a pink arrow pointing towards a pinkish heart and away from a blueish one?

I also have feminine-leaning bi/poly/pan flags too!

And there's also Novi- as an orientation to help describe!
Novi- Feeling complicated attraction or lack thereof in such a way that it is difficult or impossible to fit into one word or term.

(Also trans women are women and separating them from cis women is cissexist. I know you mean well but it's just something to deconstruct in your thinking since trans women (and men) are as diverse as cis women and men. Thanks :) )

Oooh, that sounds cool! That actually made me think to include non-binary/fluid people, somehow... Perhaps three different-sized circles (smallest blue, middle green, and largest pink - which I just realized is the Poly flag colors), kinda floating in the middle of the flag in a group but not touching, and their colors would be different shades of the colors in the queer flag (so they stand out/look different).

I like the idea of Novi-, because that's PART of the reason why I identify as Queer, but I personally feel like Novi is an aspect of my Queerness (I just feel really comfortable with Queer as my main orientation label). But maybe the base of the flag could be one-half Novi and one-half Queer (the one I like best, with horizontal lines, to match the Novi horizontal lines) - that seems easier than trying to incorporate yet another shape or border or something to include the Novi flag? I'm super flexible, though...

I'm making some basic designs on the Paint program, how can I send them as pictures to you?

* Oh gosh, I didn't mean that in any way when I said I was cis, I didn't think about it sounding like that and I feel horrible. I just know that many trans people are especially proud of their trans-identity, and I was just giving additional info, I'm so sorry.
Pride-Flags's avatar
Yeah I'd like to see some of your designs! You can upload them in imgur.com or to your sta.sh and just send me the link. I can also work on some possibilities when I'm done with all this other stuff I'm working on xD

And no worries! Nobody's perfect and everyone messes up sometimes :) What's important is that you're willing to learn and grow!
