Main Document

While not representing any specific sexual orientation or gender identity, this flag, often seen at pride parades, represents the rubber or latex fetish subculture in the LGBTQ+ community.

The Rubber Pride flag, also known as the Latex Pride flag, is a symbol used by rubber and latex fetish community members. It was designed in 1994 by Peter Tolos and Scott Moats. According to the pair, the black color on the flag represents leather; the red symbolizes the group's "blood passion for rubber and rubbermen," and the yellow stands for their "drive for intense rubber play and fantasies." And yes, the design is a literal kink.
