Gilbert Baker’s Rainbow Warrior: My Life in Color

Gilbert Baker’s Rainbow Warrior: My Life in Color

Join us for a celebration of the life and work
of Gilbert Baker, the creator of the rainbow
flag. Baker’s life will be celebrated through
film and readings from his recently published
autobiography, Rainbow Warrior: My Life in Color. A
panel discussion will follow on the legacy of Baker’s
art and life. Copies of Rainbow Warrior will be
available for sale and signing.


Gilbert Baker (1951-2017) was an activist, designer and flag
maker renowned for the creation of the first Rainbow Flag in
1978. Working with friends, he created the iconic flag that
would be unveiled at San Francisco’s Gay Freedom Day Parade
on June 25. The flag’s immediate success led to Baker developing a rich career as both
activist and designer, using his creations to further causes around the world. Charley Beal is
the Manager of Creative Projects for the Gilbert Baker Estate.
