Her first time at the Dallas Gay-Pride Parade, it was blazing hot and she proudly wore her sweat drenched I Support my Lesbian Daughter tank top—it bedazzled by sparkly rainbow banners.

Inspired by an June, 2022 - Press 53-Word Theme Prompt
Your prompt for June: A vexillologist knows all about banderoles, burgees, fanions, pennons, standards and windsocks. They know badges and cantons and fields and finials and hoists. They can spot a bend, fess, pall, or saltire. But, do they know the tail of a dog? Can they pick a wild iris? And are they always sensing forebodings? Write a 53-word story about a flag.
