B and I joined hundreds of others in the Castro tonight to pay tribute to Gilbert Baker, the creator of the rainbow flag, who died earlier today. Cleve Jones, who spoke about his close friend at tonight's vigil, told The New York Times earlier today, "It was his gift to the world. He told me when the flag first went up that he knew at that moment that it was his life's work. It needed no explanation. People knew immediately that it was our flag."
