The current iteration of the classic children’s show Blues Clues, called Blues Clues & You, showed how much pride they have in a new Alphabet Song video released on the Neckelodeon show’s official YouTube channel. In the video, when they get to the letter “P,” Traci Paige Johnson, who voices the dog Blue, sings, “P is full of Pride!” while a series of LGBTQ+ pride flags appear all around the letters. Here are the flags included and what they mean.
Introduced in Philadelphia in 2017 by Amber Hikes, the Executive Director of the Mayor’s office for LGBT Affairs, the eight stripe rainbow flag was designed to better recognize LGBTQ+ people of color. This flag was represented by the letter “P” in the song.
There are several variations on the Lesbian Pride flag. This five stripe version was created on Tumblr in 2018. After a seven strip version created by Emily Gwen won an online poll, user @taqwomen made this simplified five color version.
This flag was created by Morgan Carpenter of Intersex Human Rights Australia (then known as Organisation Intersex International Australia) in July 2013. The circle represents how intersex people are whole and unbroken.
