Rainbow Flags to Fly Downtown in Honor of GaySantaBarbara.org

The “Bent Rainbow” flag of GaySantaBarbara.org will fly in downtown Santa Barbara Jan. 5-12 to commemorate the birth of GaySantaBarbara.org as the official Web site of the GSB Foundation.

The late Paul Mills, GSB’s first vice president and original force behind the State Street Flag program, designed the “Bent Rainbow” flag. The design pays tribute to the Chromatic Gate, the huge and welcoming rainbow sculpture on Cabrillo Boulevard. The colors acknowledge GSB’s involvement in the global Gay Celebration movement.

Among GSB’s all-volunteer community programs promoting gay-friendly cultural and business activities, GaySantaBarbara.org produces the Annual Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Celebration and “Sunday OUT! on De la Guerra @ State.” The organization also runs the Gay Café and hosts the GSB Business Network, with a directory of more than 200 local gay-owned and gay-friendly businesses.

GaySantaBarbara.org has implemented the Adopt-a-Flag Program, providing community members and business owners the opportunity to support GSB’s charitable efforts and to own a 4-foot-by-6-foot flag and/or a gold “Bent Rainbow” lapel pin.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
