Message from Monica Helms founder of the TransFlag
To my friends of TransAmsterdam and in the Netherlands
Thank you for honoring the Transgender Pride Flag by celebrating the 20th Anniversary of its creation. It is wonderful people like you that have helped make it the second most popular flag in the LGBTQ community. As trans people, we needed a symbol to rally around and help to unite us all over the world. The Trans Flag has done just that.
The Netherlands is a beautiful country that I had a chance to visit 57 years ago when my father was stationed in Bitburg, Germany, in the US Air Force. It was such a colorful an amazing country, with beautiful flowers and welcoming people. The miniature city of Madurodam impacted me so strongly that I make various miniature objects to this day because of seeing it.
I know that I have many amazing friends in the Netherlands and I hope to get a chance to meet all of you face-to-face one of these days in the future. For now, all of you continue living your beautiful lives and continue to unite around the Trans Flag whenever you gather to show your pride.
Your friend, Monica Helms
