Stained Glass Progress Pride Flag

Designed in 2018 by Daniel Quasar, the "Progress" Flag places 5 half-sized stripes in an arrow shape representing trans and non-binary individuals, marginalized POC communities, as well as those living with AIDS on top of the traditional LGBTQ Rainbow Flag. 

20% of proceeds from the purchase of this flag goes towards the BAI or Black Aids Institute. "Black AIDS Institute (BAI) is dedicated to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Black community. BAI is the only uniquely and unapologetically Black HIV think and do tank in America. We believe in complete freedom for Black people by eradicating systematic oppression so that we can live long, healthy lives.

Our decisions, responses, programming, and messaging are informed by our roots, and by our core values of Black Empowerment, Equity, Impact, Self-Determination, and Integrity."

Made by shop owner, Tamara Goldsmith, This unique piece is hand-cut, copper-foiled, and assembled using a traditional Tiffany method in her Portland, Oregon studio.

Stained Glass, a technique relatively unchanged for hundreds of years, is the ancient art of assembling cut, mineral-infused, handmade art glass together with lead/tin seams. This piece has also been painted with additional details on the front only. 60/40 lead/tin solder was used and the border is lead came. 

Lead is not dangerous to have in your home in an art-piece like this unless sanded or causing lead-dust to be airborne and inhaled or somehow ingested. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands well after cleaning or handling the piece.

The piece will be carefully wrapped to prevent breakage during domestic shipping.

It hangs from a silver chain about 5 inches from the top and the piece itself is about 11” tall and 8” wide.
