Sponsored by Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, the Pride Flag Raising at Gloucester City Hall will take place on Monday, June 10 at 3:00 p.m. Mayor Romeo Theken will be joined by members of City Council and City Staff. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
June is Pride Month, which celebrates everyone in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. The rainbow flag, commonly known as the gay pride flag, is a symbol of LGBTQ pride. The original flag had eight stripes. Today, the most commonly used flag, created in 1979 by Gilbert Baker, has six stripes. Each stripe has a different meaning: Red represents life; orange is for healing; yellow is for sunlight; green is for nature; blue is for harmony; and purple is for spirit.
