Rainbow Flag Celebration

Join us for this Wednesday Night event to mark the fortieth anniversary of the Rainbow Flag, a symbol of LGBTQ pride that was created by Gilbert Baker and collaborators in 1978.

Amber Hikes, Executive Director of the Office of LGBT Affairs for the City of Philadelphia, and Michelle Millar Fisher, The Louis C. Madeira IV Assistant Curator of European Decorative Arts, will give remarks, followed by a flag unfurling ceremony accompanied by the Philadelphia Voices of Pride. Local Fishtown-based and LGBTQ owned and operated vendors Cake Life will provide celebratory cake and cupcakes. Visitors can explore the Museum collection, guided by Qunify, or fashion flags of their own with fiber artist, Amy Cousins.
