Anyone involved in Wikipedia who is familiar with Wikietiquette? Because long standing editors are more likely to be taken seriously than single purpose accounts, and I don’t have an account at all.
Here’s the story: back in December 2011 someone removed the flag from the ‘Asexuality’ Wikipedia article because it apparently “was based entirely on web forums”. However, it has been used internationally in pride parades, and I have links to Creative Commons photographs depicting it. This photo is SF pride 2011 and is CC, these photos are Stockholm Pride 2011 and is CC, this photo is Toronto 2011 and is CC.
This photo is Manchester 2011 and unfortunately is not CC, nor is the photograph above which is from Belgrade 2010 and which I seriously want some more background on than the information I can get from the news reports, so if you know something personally please drop me a line.
To my knowledge, no one has reported on the asexual flag directly in the news and such, nor have they written a book on it, because that is the way things roll. There is (A)sexual which apparently featured the flag, but I haven’t seen it, and I don’t know about citing a documentary. Here is a Vice magazine article on London Pride 2011 with a photograph that has the asexual flag (not CC).
I have no status on Wikipedia, would someone who does please consider helping? I think the asexual flag, symbolism explained here, is an important symbol of the online and offline presence of the asexual community.
