Lesbians, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgender, Queer, Streith what are these names? Are we not all humans? We have been hearing of gay and female activists fighting for equality and discrimination. Same-sex marriage has been a long debate since the 1980s, a union between two individuals with the same gender, that are still not legal in many countries. As the LGBTQ community continuous to fight for their freedom, the rainbow flag was created, a renowned set of six colors that represent that LGBTQ community. They even designed a ring famously known as the freedom rings.
A typical marriage ceremony requires a set of wedding rings as a symbol of their union. At present, 28 countries have granted same-sex marriage. This gave birth to rainbow wedding rings. Traditional wedding rings combined with the six rainbow colors, whether through coatings or the use of colored crystals. Wearing the rainbow ring does not automatically mean that you belong to the community, but by wearing this type of ring, it denotes acceptance. LGBTQ wedding rings are not limited to the colorful version, but it also applies to the traditionally fashioned wedding rings. The designs are just more gender-friendly and practical to wear.

LGBTQ had been through a lot to gain the freedom that they have now. We celebrate pride month in June to commemorate the Stonewall revolt that happened on June 28th of 1969. Six days of protest that lead to spur the gay rights society all around the world into action. Before the 1960s, same-sex relationships were not generally accepted that they had to hide in gay bars and to seek refuge and openly express themselves like crossdressing. Police officers would do raids and roughen up patrons of the bar, checking each individual if they are in violation of the appropriate clothing act. In the year 2016, former President Obama recognized the Stonewall in and the street neighboring streets as a national monument that paved rise to the promulgation of gay rights.
LGBT Colors / Flag
Harvey Milk, a former gay elected official, convinced an openly gay artist Gilbert Baker to design the first-ever rainbow flag. A flag is considered as a powerful symbol of pride. Its’ purpose is to convince gay people to get out of the closet and live in the truth, not be afraid of being judged by other people and say this is who I am. He got the idea from seeing a rainbow in the sky.
Initially, the eight colors of the rainbow flag were specifically: hot pink, red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, indigo, and violet. These colors represent the different aspects of life, namely: sex, life, healing, sunlight, nature art, harmony, and spirit. Baker tried to create the rainbow flag in time for the gay freedom parade held in San Francisco in 1978, but due to some issues in production, only six colors were used, and these are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
It was only in the year 1994 was the year where the rainbow flag was recognized as a symbol of the LGBTQ pride. The rainbow flag is now internationally accepted as a symbol that represents the trying times and the promising future of the LGBTQ pride.
Other LGBTQ Set of Colors and Meaning
From eight original LGBTQ rainbow colors to the final 6-rainbow color, but the colors do not stop there. The LGBTQ community comprises of different sexuality, and they are represented by their own set of colors. Here are some of them.
Colors of Asexuality
Black, gray, white, and purple stripes represent the community known as asexual. Like the rainbow flag, each color also means something black for asexuality, white for allies, gray for demisexuals, and purple for the community.
Colors of the Bear Culture
Dark brown, orange, golden yellow, tan, white, gray, and black. This specific community has some prerequisites before one can indeed be categorized as a bear. The person must have a bear-like physique such as being hairy and bulky; the requirement is still an ongoing debate and is set by the group. The color and the design of the bear flag was said to be inclusive for gays, bisexual, transgender and others.
Colors of Bisexuality
Magenta, lavender and blue, these are the three colors of the bisexuals. Pink denotes sexual attraction towards the same gender, lavender for sexual attraction for both genders, and lastly, blue for sexual attraction to the opposite sex.
Colors of Intersex
Yellow with a purple circle. The circle denotes wholeness. Intersex individuals do not have the biological features of a male or female gender. It is an inborn trait. For this reason, the round shape is a symbol of an individuals’ potential that he has the right to be who he wants to be and live how he wants to be.
Colors of Lesbians
Dark orange, orange, light orange, white, pink, dusty pink, and dark rose pink, seven colors that denote non-conformity, independence, community, unique relationship, peace, love and sex, and lastly, feminism.
Colors of Pansexuality
Pansexuals can be non-binary or those who are considered gender fluid. The yellow color represents them while the pink for women and blue for men.
Colors of the Transgender
Baby blue, baby pink, and white. The blue color denotes a baby boy while the pink represents a baby girl. The white signifies non-binary wherein they do not have a specific gender, the color means that the non-binary is free to choose the gender they want.
Types of LGBTQ Rings
A ring that denotes asexuality. Wearing a black ring on the middle finger, particularly on the right-hand side, is a symbol of marriage in that started in the year of 2005.
Freedom Rings /Rainbow Rings
Created and designed by a David Spada. He said in the interview published last June 1992 that he designed the colorful rings to represent the happiness and the diverse community of the LGBTQ community. He also said that the ring is also a universal pro-tolerance declaration for the community when worn by straight people. These rings are a set of 6 lightweight coated aluminum rings with the rainbow color of the LGBTQ community that can be fiddled and stacked to one finger that resembles a stackable doughnut toy that babies play with.
A typical law about marriage is that it is a legally authorized unification of a man and a woman for life until the divorce or death.
Same-sex marriage activist says that gay marriage is a civil right. Not permitting same-sex marriage is a form of discrimination and repression from the government. While a man and a woman can easily apply and granted a marriage license, no license would be handed out to couples with the same sex. This is a form of sex discrimination. Another type of discrimination against the LGBTQ community is the prohibition of same-sex marriage.
The legalization of same-sex marriage constitutes tot the union of two individuals regardless of sex or gender. The marriage comes with the same rights and responsibilities as that of the traditional marriage between a man and a woman.
History of Gay Marriage / Same-Sex Marriage
There were instances in history that same-sex marriage was seen, although not accepted as legally binding under the eyes of the Law, it cannot be denied that these union happened even in the olden times.
- In the 19th century, there was a political and spiritual leader named We’wha who was married to a man.
- A woman named Ifeyinwa, who lived under the Igbo tribe, was also married to nine wives. She was a wealthy and influential member of the tribe that she overpowered the men concerning social status.
- There were also a couple of male lovers that serves as Roman soldiers in the fourth century, who were persecuted by the Christian faith due to their relationship. Bacchus was tortured to death while Sergius died a martyr that kept his Christian faith in the belief that he would be reunited with Bacchus in heaven.
- Roman emperors, Nero, for example, married a young boy, complete with the ceremony and the traditional dowry. In this era, marriage was a contract and not for procreation purposes.
- Same-sex marriage in some African tribes of Mossi, Azande, and Nubian people were said to have same-gender relationships due to the lack of females.
In the year 1984, domestic partnership was granted some benefits like insurance and leaves. This was opposed when the US Congress passed the DOMA, which denied the previously granted benefits for same-sex partnership.
On the midnight of April 2nd of 2001, a month after the Law of same-sex marriage was passed in the Netherlands, three male couples and a pair of female couple exchanged wedding vows in front of the Mayor of Amsterdam who officiated the ceremony.
- Marital Rights
One of the reasons why same-sex marriage was sought after is because of the lack of marital rights. Two individuals can live happily without the approval of the government but the lack of freedom concerning decision makings like in dangerous health procedures or the division of properties or access to each other’s ownership or estate during one’s passing and other rights that is essential in a couple’s relationship.
- Legally Accepted Union
The feeling of freedom and confidence after being lawfully accepted as a couple. Same-sex couples usually suffer prejudice and stigma when seen living together, especially when they have a child. For the children, seeing and understanding the acceptance of the Law no matter what other people’s opinion is regarding unconventional family situations.
- Monogamy / Low Separation Rate
Studies show that being married legally decreases the number of separation between a couple. We can see this in new relationships where it is easier to move on and separate over some petty problems that arise unlike when a couple is legally bounded. Lawfully being married comes with responsibilities and not just benefit. You have taken an oath and the couple must now follow the laws with regard to marriage or suffer the consequence.
- Human Rights
Gay marriage is an example of a continuous evolution of human and civil rights. Freedom to all men, regardless of gender and sexuality. Freedom from discrimination and equality to all.
- The domino effect
Altering an aspect in the constitution results in revisions of other laws that pertain to marriage and family like raising kids and adoption. One of the reasons why the legalization of gay marriage took more than 20 years to achieve roots from the fear of other forms of non-traditional weddings like incest, polygamy, and the ultimate of a human marrying an animal or bestiality.
- Effect on Children
Bullying is still a part of a child’s everyday problems, whether we like it or not. It is still happening to some poor children. Small things like a short height, large eyes, and sexuality. Having same-gender parents, even when it is widely accepted, maybe a cause of bullying to children, and this may lead to mental and emotional trauma.
Religion and the belief of the Supreme Being have been a vital part of humanity. The belief in the afterlife and the notions of doing good would be gifted a life on paradise while doing things that are against the religious teachings would result in eternal life in hell. To most religions, same-sex marriage is a sin. This is why some LGBTQ member considers themselves an atheist. Even though the scripture teaches that God loves everyone, but there is a part where his children must obey his words, which complicates the harmony between religion and homosexuality.
- Opposing Views
In everything, there would always be opposing views; an example would be which pet is better a dog or a cat? Much more when the subject is homosexuality and marriage. Fear of unwanted advances towards children was one of the factors debates when it comes to child safety and gay marriage.
Religions and Acceptance
Some religious belief is still not as comfortable with the concept of same-sex marriage. One of these is the recent news about United Methodists are splitting into two groups. The traditionalist and the progressive group.
The Catholic teachings were also one of the religions that did not condone same-sex marriage in the past. The learning of sexual acts is for procreation and symbolism being a man, and a woman does not meet the criteria when same-gender couples come together. They do not discriminate against homosexuality and teach their members to respect, be compassionate, and have the utmost sensitivity towards their members that belong to the LGBTQ community, but the marriage between the same genders is still not widely accepted to this day. Blessing is given for some countries that have legalized gay marriage, but marriage ceremonies in the Catholic Church are still a taboo topic as of the moment.
Human rights and equality have long been fought due to discrimination. Closeminded individuals needed to understand and see the world has changed from their traditional beliefs. Gone were the times of slavery, the regular females who were not allowed an education, and the discrimination of gays, lesbians, transgender, bisexual, and queers. We must accept that we are all created equal, we must have the same human rights, and it does not depend on our gender or sexuality. Even animals have their reasons, so why can’t humans have the freedom to be what they are and do what they want as long as it does not harm anyone else.Same-sex marriage is no different from a typical wedding. It is still between two people who love each other, enough to want to spend a lifetime together. Rainbow wedding rings are not just a symbol of a union between a couple that belongs to the LGBTQ community, but it is a symbol of hope, trials, and a promise of a life full of color and adventure, and acceptance.
