What does the rainbow flag mean?
A rainbow flag is a multi-colored flag consisting of stripes in the colors of the rainbow. The actual colors used to differ, but many of the designs are based on the traditional scheme of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
The use of rainbow flags has a long tradition; they are displayed in many cultures around the world as a sign of diversity and inclusiveness, of hope and of yearning. At First Congegational Church, we fly the flag as a symbol of our open and affirming policy and let all who pass by know that they are welcome here.
WAGLY (West Suburban Alliance of GLBT Youth), is an organization in the MetroWest area for High School GLBT youth and allies.
What first grew out of a conversation between ministers and parents in the area, WAGLY has been created to give gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and allied youth a safe space to come, socialize, and learn together. The goal of the group is to unite GLBT and allied youth in the West Suburban area of Boston by creating a safe space for all who wish to come.
Meetings are held every Monday night from 7 - 8:30 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Wellesley Hills. For more information, download this pdf or visit their websites: www.wagly.org and www.facebook.com/wagly.
