How to Make Gay Pride Bracelets

Whether you’re planning to join your LGBTQ friends for Pride parade festivities or just want to send a message of support, these DIY rainbow pride bracelets are perfect. The rainbow is a symbol for love, and it’s a reminder that we should be embracing everyone’s differences and showing compassion toward one another.

There are a few different rainbow flags, and each has its own meaning. Gilbert Baker designed the classic rainbow flag after being commissioned by Harvey Milk, an openly gay politician and veteran of the Vietnam War, to create a symbol for LGBT people. Each color on the original rainbow flag represents a different aspect of human life: pink for sex, red for love, orange for energy, yellow for hope, green for nature, turquoise for art and harmony, indigo for spirit, and violet for transcendence.

Some of the lesser-known LGBT pride flags include the abrosexual and transgender flags. The abrosexual flag, created by Mod Chad of pride-flags-for-us, is meant to represent the sexuality and gender identity of people who are attracted to both men and women. The transgender pride flag, meanwhile, was designed by Kye Rowan to represent individuals who do not fit within traditional gender categories and those with non-binary identities.

To make a rainbow pride bracelet, you’ll need: Embroidery floss in a literal rainbow of colors. Leather or suede cord: Craft stores carry this in a variety of widths, colors and lengths. A little craft glue: You’ll only need a few dabs for each bracelet.
