Sewing the Rainbow: The Story of GIlbert Baker and the Rainbow Flag
This book takes readers from Gilbert’s childhood in a small Kansas town where he didn’t fit in, to his historic artistic career in San Francisco. Today Gilbert’s flag is everywhere, even in the small town where he grew up, reminding people that it’s okay to be their colorful selves. Includes a Reader Note that provides more in-depth discussion of the beginnings of the gay rights movement and a more detailed look into Gilbert Baker's place in our shared history.
