How the rainbow became the symbol of LGBT pride

How the rainbow became the symbol of LGBT pride
- The LGBT pride flag was invented in 1978 by Gilbert Baker, a gay rights activist, army veteran, artist, and self-styled "gay Betsy Ross." (Baker died in March of this year.) He made the flag for the Gay Freedom Pride Parade that year in San Francisco, at the request of Harvey Milk, a gay city politician who was assassinated later that year.
