How the rainbow became the symbol of gay pride

Many people signed on to the Internet last Friday to find their Twitter and Facebook feeds exploding with rainbows. The Supreme Court’s landmark decision to make same-sex marriage a Constitutional right across the country sparked a huge volume of rainbow colored cartoons, .gifs and photos.

Today, the rainbow flag is an almost universally recognized symbol for gay pride, both online and off. But do you know where did that rainbow flag come from, and how did it come to symbolize gay pride and rights? It's definitely an educational lesson you don't want to miss.
