Pride is an annual series of events that includes a parade celebrating the diversity and pride of the LGBTQ+ community. The National Maritime Museum recently acquired a new item into the collection, a 'Pride in Polar' badge.
'Pride in Polar' is a network for the LGBTQIA+ communities within the Polar Research community. On the badge, the Penguin represents the Antarctic, the Polar Bear the Arctic, and the rainbow colours represent the LGBTQIA+ community.
Create your own pride badge to show your support of the LGBTQ+ community.
You will need:
Coloured pencils and pens
Clean jar lids
Use a coloured pen to draw around your jar lids onto your sheet of paper.
Cut out your circle.
Think about an animal that might represent you. I was being a busy beetle working in the garden!
Show your pride by giving your creature a rainbow!
Glue the inside of your jam jar lid.
Stick your drawing into the jam jar lid.
Turn your lid over and tape a safety pin onto the lid.
Now you can wear your pride badge with pride!
You can wear your badge to a pride event or just to show your support of the LGBTQ+ community at any time of year. Share your badge with us on social media
