Gay Games I Featured in TV Show About History of the Rainbow Flag

04 Jul 2021 18:32 | Douglas Litwin (Administrator)

The FGG was contacted about assisting the producers of the Hearst TV weekly News show, MATTER OF FACT WITH SOLEDAD O'BRIEN. They were doing a pride month story about the origins of the Rainbow flag.

It is well known that the late Gilbert Baker from San Francisco created this iconic flag in 1978. What is less well known is that Tom Waddell contacted Mr. Baker about decorating Kezar Stadium for the Opening Ceremony of Gay Games I in 1982. The FGG provided several photos for inclusion in this TV well-produced and accurate segment.
