Keystone Pride Recovery Initiative Logo Description:

The Keystone Pride Recovery Initiative (KPRI) logo is set on the outline of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania shield. In the middle of the shield are the initials "KPRI", the acronym for Keystone Pride Recovery Initiative. Across the top of the image is a line of people in various poses of joyousness, all with their arms in the air. The images of people are in varying shades of the red, yellow, green and blue color palette, representing the colors of the rainbow. In the community the colors of the people in the image represent the colors of the rainbow flag, the flag of the LBGTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning) community.
