Flag in the Map is a growing collection of photographs and stories that reaffirms the universal power of the Rainbow Flag to inspire LGBTQ+ people – especially in countries where their everyday existence is threatened.
A collaboration between the Gilbert Baker Foundation and ReportOUT, Flag in the Map was launched in October 2020. The two organizations put out an open call across the world, asking for submissions of photos of people flying their Pride Flags. The resulting images came in from scores of countries and were curated for an emotionally powerful book.
A selection of photographs have been mounted for an impressive public exhibition. As of this date, six exhibitions have been launched in the U.K. and USA. Two were held in New York, including a summer-long outdoor exhibition at Stonewall National Park.
The Flag In The Map Exhibition will be on display at the Provincetown Pride Center from June 1 – 30, 2023 and is made possible with support from Seamen’s Bank and Levi’s.
