In past years, the city has flown the traditional eight-color rainbow flag, designed by activist and artist Gilbert Baker in 1978. In an effort to better reflect the intersections of racial, gender, and sexual orientation, Boston Pride has pledged to meet with city officials and the LGBTQ community to create its very own Boston Pride flag for June 2021. Boston Pride plans to hold listening sessions with interested community members. No dates have been announced, but updates can be found on bostonpride.org.
