Printed with an image of the Polysexual Pride Flag we chose to use Hot Pink for the sides. It was a color that adorned the original Gay Pride Flag but was removed in 1979 due to the scarce availability of pink fabric at the time. We use it here for it's original symbolic representation for sex, but more importantly because it was a dropped color.
So many individuals who do not identify with gender and sexual norms are "dropped" out of our society. Pushed to the side as not deserving of inclusion, not allowed to participate because of fear and bigotry. This simple canvas is a visual representation for the proud polysexual individual with the pride flag out, front and center bringing attention to the true self for all to see. The pink sides remind us that there are still those living on the sidelines, in the shadows needing encouragement and a safe place to be themselves.
"Polysexuality is sexual attraction to multiple, but not all, genders. A polysexual person is one "encompassing or characterized by many different kinds of sexuality." Authors Linda Garnets and Douglas Kimmel state that polysexual is a sexual identity "used by people who recognize that the term bisexual reifies the gender dichotomy that underlies the distinction between heterosexuality and homosexuality, implying that bisexuality is nothing more than a hybrid combination of these gender and sexual dichotomies".
However, bisexual people and scholars may object to the notion that bisexuality means sexual attraction to only two genders, arguing that since bisexual is not simply about attraction to two sexes and encompasses attraction to different genders as well, it includes attraction to more than two genders." en.wikipedia.org
