the other gender role in society. This includes transvestites

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

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.)
