Transgender: The superset of all those persons who act out the other gender role in society. This includes transvestites and transsexuals.

The Transgender Flag (for those who act, dress, or otherwise identify as the opposite gender) appears to be a brand new invention.

The most widely known transgender flag. It’s a pale pink, white and baby blue set of horizontal stripes.

Monica Helms, who is a TG activist now living in Arizona, designed the transgendered flag several years ago. She has told me that the original is now in a transgender or rainbow museum but I know not where.

It surely is similar to the bi-sexual pride flag, and certainly bears the same symbology: a transition range from blue (male) to pink (female) — and/or inversely. The number of stripes may convey a symbolic reference to what makes the difference between a bi-sexual and a transgendered, or perhaps is just an unrelated reference to the gay pride rainbow flag.

(A challenge for vexillonomists: how would you describe this flag, esp. the color names?… Prop.: P- Pb- Pb Pb+ B › now the words: pink, fuchsia, lilac, plum, blue? A comment: It would look much better with a much darker blue.)
