Description

Announced by his longtime friend on social media on Friday, Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco-based activist and artist best known for creating the rainbow flag representing gay rights, has died at the age of 65. He lived in New York City. Baker, who was born in Kansas in 1951, was stationed in San Francisco in the early 1970s while serving in the U.S. Army, at the start of the gay rights movement. According to his official website biography, Baker began making banners for gay rights and anti-war protests, often at the request of Harvey Milk, who became the first openly gay man elected to public office in California in 1977. No details were immediately available on the cause of Baker's death or where he died.http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/d...http://www.wochit.comThis video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
