LGBT stands for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender. It has been used since the 1990s and replaces the term gay, which on its own, did not describe the community. Often used in “Pride Parades” of the community, the LGBT rainbow flag is derived from the original 8-stripe flag that, in additional to the colors displayed in this scheme, also contained Hot Pink (#ff69b6) and Turquoise (#00c1c1). The flag was designed by Gilbert Baker and used for the first time in 1978.
The 8 original colors in the 8-stripe rainbow flag were: Hot Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Turquoise, Indigo and Violet.
