San Francisco International Airport formally opened its new exhibit, "A Legacy of Pride: Gilbert Baker and the 40th Anniversary of the Rainbow Flag," Saturday, April 14. The exhibit is located in a pre-security exhibit space in the International Terminal Main Hall Departures Lobby, and is free and accessible to anyone visiting the airport. While Baker is credited with turning the rainbow flag into an international symbol of LGBT equality, two others, Lynn Segerblom, who now lives in southern California, and James McNamara, who died of AIDS in 1999, helped Baker create the first two rainbow flags that flew during San Francisco's 1978 Pride parade and celebration. They are also mentioned in the exhibit, which runs through January 6.
