Support Our Pride, Renew Our Flag!

Join Our Fundraising Campaign to Celebrate and Reinvest in Our Community

About the Campaign

For a quarter of a century, the Minnesota Leather Pride flag has been a prominent emblem at the Twin Cities Pride parade—a beacon of diversity, strength, and unity. Now, we are called to refresh and renew this cherished symbol that has accompanied us through jubilant celebrations and times of challenge.

Our mission is to gather the funds necessary to craft a new flag that will bear our legacy into the future, representing our vibrant community with honor and pride.

Why the Flag Matters

The Leather Pride flag is more than just fabric and dye. It’s a statement of our identity, our solidarity, and our unwavering spirit. When we carry this flag together, we march as one – connected by the shared threads of our history and our hopes for the future.

Watch Our 2015 Interview with the creators of the first giant Minnesota Leather Pride Flag:

First unveiled in 1998, the original Leather Pride and rainbow flags became a mainstay in the Twin Cities Pride parade until 2007. The inaugural flag, crafted by Carl Gscheidmeier and Colin Spriestersbach, was later succeeded by a new flag in 2008 through a ceremonial handover during the parade. This original flag now resides within the Leather Archives & Museum in Chicago, standing as a testament to our past.
