Recounts the life of Gay Rights activist, Gilbert Baker, creator of the rainbow flag symbol of the Gay Rights Movement.
Gilbert Baker always knew he wanted a life full of colour and sparkle. In his small, grey, flay Kansas hometown, he helped his grandma sew and created his own art whenever he could.
It wasn't easy; life tried over and over again to make Gilbert conform. Buy his sparkle always shone through. He dreamed of someday going somewhere as vibrant and colourful as he was.
Set against the backdrop of San Francisco during the gay rights movement of the 1970s, Gilbert's story unfolds just like the flag he created: in a riot of colour, joy and pride.
NOTE: Gilbert is pictured as a soldier in the army with a gun pointed at his back as part of his training and to illustrate how he had refused to hold or use a gun
NOTE: Contains US spellings throughout - gray, color etc
