In Loving Memory: Gilbert Baker

This Pride we also honor the memory of the creator of The Pride Flag, Gilbert Baker. He was a radical activist and a true visionary who helped show the world what Pride looks like. In 2016, Gilbert visited our program space in NYC (pictured above) to meet with HMI youth members and inspire the next generation of artists and community leaders!
