  • In 1978, Gilbert Baker devised a new symbol for the gay community to replace the pick triangle, which was a holdover from Nazi designations. He created the rainbow flag, with its colors--fuschia, red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, blue and purple--representing sex, life, healing, sunlight, nature, magic, serenity and spirit. They are also representative of Gilbert's native Key West, an island of a mere 2 by 4 miles, but with inhabitants of every hue, nationality, ethnicity, and background. Depicted here as an idyll where sexuality and lifestyle are not judged, the population of Key West comes together in this moving documentary to stretch an 8000-foot-long, 3-ton flag from one end of the island to the other. Taking this event as its jumping-off point, the filmmakers delve into the personal stories of the participants, exploring themes of hope, despair, struggle, and triumph. It depicts how gay individuals from all walks of life found their way to this island only 90 miles away from Cuba, in pursuit of a supportive, safe community. On the 25th anniversary of the rainbow flag, one thing they all have in common is a shared hope for and belief in the continuation of that community.
