I can never get emojis to work right here. *shrug*

@jessmahler

Why's the middle stripe black? That's the stripe that the designer of the trans flag said was white for transitioning and nonbinary people. Is this version about excluding them?

@frameacloud No, this version is about explicitly including black trans people, including transitioning and nonbinary black trans folks.

Do know if there was a specific reason white was originally chosen for trans and nonbinary folks? It's not an association that makes any sense to me and just seems more like a 'blank' because the designer didn't know what else to go with.
