Iconic Giant Rainbow Flag to Be Preserved in Historical Archive

Thousands have seen it float along Ocean Boulevard in every Pride parade since 2000: it’s the massive rainbow flag carried by 80 volunteers each year, with onlookers tossing dollar after dollar onto it in the name of philanthropy. The original flag, whose home is the AIDS Food Store on 10th St., will now be formally archived in celebration of the Historical Society of Long Beach’s LGBT History Project.
