Outweek 2015, a celebration of the diversity on campus launches on Feb. 6 with a flag-raising ceremony. UBC flies the Rainbow Flag in support of our LGBTQ2I students, faculty, and staff. Outweek is presented by Pride UBC, Access & Diversity and the VP Students Portfolio.
About the Rainbow Flag: In 1978, San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker designed the first Rainbow flag with eight stripes: pink, red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, indigo, and violet. According to Baker, the colours represented, respectively, sexuality, life, healing, the sun, nature, harmony, art, and spirit. Over time, the flag has evolved to become a symbol of solidarity and strength for LGBTQ2I communities. The current flag consists of six colours and is recognized by the International Congress of Flag Makers.
Attend an Outweek Event between Feb. 6 and 14
