What Does a Yellow Equal Sign Mean?

The yellow equal sign is the logo for the Human Rights Campaign. The Human Rights Campaign is the largest civil rights organization dedicated to achieving equality for the LGBT community. The yellow equal sign is positioned on a blue square.

The Human Rights Campaign unveiled this logo in 1995. Since that time, the yellow equal sign is one of the most widely recognized symbols in the fight for equality for the LGBT community in the United States as well as in some other countries around the world. At the time the yellow equal sign logo was introduced, the organization changed its name from the Human Rights Campaign Fund to the Human Rights Campaign to more accurately reflect its wider mission.
