Lesbian , gay , bisexual , and transgender LGBT communities have adopted certain symbols for which they are identified and by which they demonstrate unity, pride , shared values, and allegiance to one another. LGBT symbols also communicate ideas, concepts and identity both within their communities and to mainstream cultures. Arguably the two most-recognized international LGBT symbols are the pink triangle and the rainbow flag. One of the oldest of these symbols is the pink triangle , which originated from the Nazi concentration camp badges that male homosexuals were required to wear on their clothing. The pink triangle was used exclusively with male prisoners—lesbians were not included under Paragraph , a statute which made homosexual acts between males a crime.

The media portrayal of LGBT people is the depiction or portrayal of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender , queer and intersex people in media. The initialism LGBT is commonly used to include all non-heterosexual sexual orientations and gender identities represented in shorthand. Although the initialism originated in North America, media representation of LGBT communities may be examined on a global scale, with varying degrees of tolerance. Historically, the portrayals of LGBT communities in media have been negative, reflecting the cultural intolerance of LGBT individuals; however, from the s to present day, there has been an increase in the depictions of LGBT people, issues, and concerns within mainstream media in North America.
Pride Fl ags The rainbow flag has changed dramatically since its first hand-dyed creation by Gilbert Baker and his boyfriend Jomar Teng. The original version of the flag had eight colors, each of which stood for concepts including healing, sunlight, nature, and spirit. Since then, the now-common six color flag is only one of many variations, all of which symbolize the diversity and inclusiveness of the LGBT movement. Pink Triangle Born out of the violence of the Nazi regime, the pink triangle is a reclaimed symbol of oppression now used to show LGBT pride and increase understanding.
