A 75-year-old grandma has written an amazing pro-LGBT tribute to the rainbow flag.

Sherri Gray, from Nashville, Tennessee, took to YouTube to share her song ‘RAINBOW FLAG’, unsurprisingly penned a tribute for the LGBT community.

The grandma landed a viral hit a few years ago when she wrote a song for the wedding of her niece, Shannon, and fiancée, Lisa.

She sings: “Fly high, Sweet Flag… fly proud and free… protect our world community. Fly high with love, for hate’s a drag. We’re proud of you, Rainbow Flag.

“For we have values that we share — no matter who — no matter where. We pray one day all hate will cease, so that our world might live in peace.

“No matter how the evil try…yes, we have bled… yes, we have died. But hate will not tear us apart, for rainbow love lives in our heart.

“Though evil fights, our love will win…our Rainbow Flag will fly again. Evermore, its message rings…as six bright colours shine and sing.”

She sings: “Violet for Human Spirit. (Every colour plays a part)… Green for Nature… Blue for Art… Yellow sunlight… Orange Healing… Red for Life… So many feelings!

“You bring us hope and pride, Rainbow Flag!”

Mrs Gray explains: “38 years ago Gilbert Baker created our beloved Rainbow Flag as a symbol for our community.

“Equality, respect, diversity… and so many other positive words come to mind whenever I see our Flag.

“And yet…even in deep silence, my heart ‘hears’ the loving message of those six bright colours. I hope your heart will, as well.”
