Chemistry Pride Enamel Pins - Assorted
Pride flags turned into pins from the Periodic Table of Elements, designed by Yas Petit Poulet (Quebec). "The idea behind the concept is that gender and sexuality are just as natural as chemical elements. In other words, every gender and sexuality are valid, natural, and thus deserving of pride and joy. Labels can be used to increase self-assurance and to acquaint with other people. It is a helping hand in identifying yourself as well as in finding your place within the community and the world."
The pins itself is a square of 3/4" inch. The metal colour is antique gold.

The symbol located right side corner is the official pride symbol of bisexuality, representing the attraction to the same and different genders.

Lavender symbolises androgyny or queerness, white represents agender identity, and green represents people with non-binary identities.
