As Twitchy reported back in June, people were getting seizures from looking at the latest iteration of the Pride flag, which went from a simple rainbow to the progressive Pride flag, which included pink and blue triangles to represent transgender people as well as black and brown stripes to represent LGBTQ people of color. The new flag added a purple circle on a yellow background to better represent intersex people.

We hadn’t realized it at the time, but we’d missed another iteration of the Pride flag entirely. This one drops the purple circle but adds a red umbrella to represent sex workers who are victims of abuse and violence.

This was from back in March, so we weren’t the only ones who missed it; the people who designed the intersex-inclusive flag missed it too. The designer says he collaborated on the flag along with HIV activist Shamal Waraich “to be more accurate for skin tones of more POC/BAME.” We’ll confess here; we don’t know what BAME stands for.
I'm so excited to see it keep getting worse. 🤡 pic.twitter.com/6wqIKjCaK6

It’s now about 4 iterations away from becoming Gaussian noise.

Until 24 hours from now anyway.

The previous "new" one only lasted 5 minutes…

It’s going to be hilarious when the pride flag completely loses the original rainbow flag. “Finally it’s inclusive!! “😆

Somehow I still feel excluded. Weird.

With a tiiiny bit of editing you could include the Umbrella Corporation symbol in it pic.twitter.com/Tv7BxQXzmE

What is that? A martini umbrella?

Finally, the “I would like to be seated outside but it must be at a table under a large beach umbrella” brunch gays will feel included!

Still too oppressively linear. Just cut to the chase and go full Jackson Pollock. pic.twitter.com/LApGMUBZJh

It’s so fitting that it’s literally pushing the original rainbow flag off altogether
— Tim (@DomenGolder) July 28, 2021
They are legit going to run of colours and geometric shapes at this rate.

Is it gonna turn into a Magic Eye eventually? Cuz I can't see it yet. 🤪

A red Pac-Man puking onto the pride flag. Accurate.
— Paulie Walnuts (@_SnackMaster) July 28, 2021
Now we see it!
As a gay I can say I no longer understand what's happening with the flag. 🙈

And here I thought the ‘Progress’ Pride flag couldn’t get any more hideous. I seriously underestimated the self-appointed governors of all that is ‘woke’ to further tribal-ize what was once an affirming, unifying symbol.

Finally, a safe space for those who identify as an umbrella 🌂

The rainbow flag will become the next hate symbol because it excludes the other stuff.
— Charbauxe 2s+ (@Shunobot3000) July 28, 2021
Wasn’t there a purple circle on yellow before? Whatever that represented, the sex work umbrella seems to have consumed it.
— Robbie (@threecatpileup) July 28, 2021
We’re not sure if either the intersex flag or the sex worker flag ever caught on — doesn’t sound very inclusive.
