And yet in all the pride spectrum there are no chub pride flags, its interesting that in a community that values its voice so much, we find the same group silenced, chubby people are not supposed to be proud, those who find them attractive are supposed to do so covertly. Is this an intentional parralel to the wide world of fat shaming or just an case of the microcosm matching the macrocosm.
I can remember once coming across a post on bellybuilders with a gainer flag suggestion. I think it had to do with the neapolitan ice cream colours. Hmm interesting if anyone knows of this or has a cool idea similar to it :)
Many years ago, I was part of a group designing a chub/chaser pride flag for Atlanta G&M. We were basing it around apricot, the hanky code color for chubs and chasers. I don’t believe the group ever managed an “approved” design but the idea might serve as a starting point.
