A) I don't speak for the LGBTQ community and hence I can only say it's a
concern and not how much of a concern it is.  Just that I'm aware of the
issue in general.

B) I think the Apache Rainbow project would inevitably have a Rainbow in
it's logo which is where I see a possible concern but again see A)

As I mentioned, I've asked if an ASF member with a better grasp of the
potential issue to weigh in.  Not much else I can say about the issue.
