After an absence of many years, the rainbow flag is again flying at the newly christened Gilbert Baker Rainbow Flag Apartments at 324 Larkin Street in San Francisco's Civic Center area. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence blessed the building during a June 11 ceremony. Also on hand were Mayor London Breed; Bill Jones, the original owner of the building, which was once known as the Rainbow Flag Apartments; and Brian Basinger of the Q Foundation, who sought to honor the late Baker, who co-created the rainbow flag and turned it into a worldwide symbol of LGBT Pride.
