When esteemed activist Gilbert Baker passed away, the New York Times said of him, “Gilbert Baker, (was) a self-described “gay Betsy Ross” who in 1978 hand-dyed and stitched together eight strips of vibrantly colored fabric into a rainbow flag, instantly creating an enduring international symbol of gay pride.” They were wrong. The unsung designer of the rainbow flag was Lynn Segerblom. Tonight we are joined by Lynn and the film maker telling her story, Glenne McElhinney. We find out what the real story was around the birth of the beloved flag, and get Lynn’s thoughts on how it is being used today. Joining me are top journalists Karen Ocamb and Brody Levesque. Please note our special time, one hour earlier, this week!
