Colors representing marginalized LGBTQ+ communities are now prominently displayed in the visual identity of one of the largest Pride organizations in California.
SAN JOSE, CA -- January 25, 2021 -- In its efforts to embrace diversity, resilience and intersectionality within the LGBTQ+ community, Silicon Valley Pride today introduced a new logo incorporating the rainbow colors of the traditional Pride Flag with colors from the Progress Pride Flag recognizing marginalized LGBTQ+ communities: black and brown for people of color, and pink, white and blue for transgender individuals. The punctuation at the end of the logo proclaims the LGBTQ+ community is here for good — period.
“The Progress Flag was created by Portland based graphic designer Daniel Quasar in 2018. We want to have a modern look in its logo while paying homage to the progress flag as the current sign of the LGBTQ+ community,” said board member and Chief Marketing Officer, Saldy Suriben.
Silicon Valley Pride organizes the annual LGBTQ+ Parade and Festival in downtown San Jose every last weekend of August. It also holds a variety of events throughout the year to educate and uplift the entire LGBTQ+ community in the South Bay and beyond.
