Celebrating LGBTQ+ Pride Month

North Oculus Plaza

Celebrating LGBTQ+ Pride Month


The WTC campus will activate with dancing, music and a festive holiday lighting and flag to celebrate Pride Month. 


About the Progress Pride flag: 

  • This flag evolved from the Philadelphia Pride Flag and was created by Daniel Quasar. Quasar added a white, pink, and light blue stripe to represent the Trans community. While the black and brown stripes still represented communities of color, the black stripe is also a nod the thousands of individuals that the community lost during the HIV/AIDS crisis in 1980s and 1990s. 
  • The meanings of each color: red - life, orange - healing, yellow - sunlight, green - nature, blue - harmony and/or serenity, and purple - spirit.
  • The light blue, light pink and white section represents transgender and nonbinary people. These colors reference the transgender pride flag created by U.S. Navy veteran Monica Helms.
  • The brown and black stripes represent marginalized communities of color. These colors reference the Philadelphia pride flag introduced by Amber Hikes. The black stripe also represents those who have been lost to AIDS and those living with the condition today. This meaning references the Victory Over AIDS flag created by Sgt. Leonard Matlovitch.
