Kai Baan Bag in Isan Pride Edition to Celebrate Pride Festival
Kai Baan Bag is not just a typical local bag, but it is the symbol of pride to be Isan and to represent the beauty of LGBT, the spiritual liberty of human beings.
Pride Festival or Pride month Festival is annually held in June. The event is to celebrate and present the need of equality in the society. This event is not only for LGBT, but, at the present time, also represents the “equality” of everyone in this world society. As a result, June is considered the month of Pride for LGBT and everyone in societies. The parades in this annual event are marching for supporting social equality.
Pride parades take place annually in different cities such as New York City, USA; Madrid, Spain; Vienna, Austria; Amsterdam, Netherlands and Tokyo, Japan during Pride month. In Thailand it takes place in Bangkok.
Pride Parade is marching to campaign and support self-affirmation, dignity, equality and awareness of LGBT. The parades allow everyone especially LGBT to dress or reveal themselves freely and fully being themselves. They do not need to care for any social norms. Therefore, Pride Month is filled with joy and vividness of different dresses of LGBTs and others who join the parades. The very outstanding symbol of this event is rainbow flags.
The Background of the Rainbow Flag, the Symbol of Pride Month
Rainbow the symbol of Pride month was designed by Gilbert Baker, an American artist and activist. Gilbert created the rainbow flag as he thought that LGBTs should have their own flags and decided to pick rainbow colors in order to reflect the diversity of LGBT community. The flag was first released and used on June 25, 1978. The meanings of each color on the Pride flag are as follows.
- Red stands for fighting or life.
- Orange stands for healing.
- Yellow stands for bight sun.
- Green stands for nature.
- Indigo stands for arts and harmony.
- Violet stands for LGBTQ spirit.
