blackbeard pride

When my partner blogger McBone asked me if I could make a gay pride Jolly Roger for Edward Teach’s Facebook page, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. McBone and I have been co-captaining Blackbeard’s online profile for the past few years and we take our job very seriously. When it came to inclusiveness, pirates were far ahead of their time. Former slaves, women, Jews…the more the merrier. I have no doubt Ed Teach wouldn’t have thought twice about including a gay or lesbian among his legendary crew. My only aim was to make this Jolly Roger worthy of Blackbeard’s name.

Feel free to use this pirate pride flag. After all, who am I to quash piracy of a pirate flag?
