#OECTA and Rainbow Flags and Pink Jesus . #catholicteachers @archtoronto
When #oecta fly rainbow flags, remember who created it and why he made it..
Creator of rainbow flag, Gilbert Baker, was inspired by “Piss Christ” to go as Pink Jesus in a Pride Parade. Hear and see him below:
He also was “Sister Chanel 2001” as a member of SanFran’s Sisters of Perpetual Indulgencem(pic below with crucifix). This is a sister group of the Toronto Sisters of Joy who are marching in pride parade with OECTA.
The flag is about POWER and is political
I decided that we should have a flag,” Mr. Baker said in a 2015 interview with the Museum of Modern Art, “that we are a people, a tribe if you will. And flags are about proclaiming power, so it’s very appropriate.”
“That’s what flags are for. Flags are about proclaiming power … that visibility is key to our success and to our justice.”
