Gilbert Baker, the man who created the iconic rainbow pride flag that became a symbol for the LGBTQ community, died Thursday at the age of 65. Baker's passing was announced by activist and writer Cleve Jones, although the cause of his death wasn't immediately known. "My dearest friend in the world is gone," Jones wrote in a post on Facebook. "Gilbert gave the world the Rainbow Flag; he gave me forty years of love and friendship. I can't stop crying. I love you forever Gilbert Baker."
