Is Gilbert Baker’s rainbow gay pride flag still radical at 40, or are we over it? | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

In the Castro district and downtown along Market Street, there's a riot of rainbow merchandise in store windows ahead of Sunday's annual parade: T-shirts, feather wings, clip-on tails, tutus and even rainbow-striped rompers.
