Event Details

The Pink Triangle of Twin Peaks is a highly-visible but mute reminder of inhumanity and recalls one the darkest chapters in human history.  It is nearly an acre in size and can be seen for 20 miles and is a giant in-your-face educational tool. It’s a WARNING and a REMINDER of what has happened in the past and might happen again if we aren’t vigilant.

The Pink Triangle was originally used to brand suspected homosexuals in Nazi concentration camps. It was revived in the 1970s as a symbol of protest against homophobia, used in an inverted form as a rallying and protest symbol during the height of the AIDS crisis (Silence=Death), and has been used to symbolize LGBTQ+ Pride ever since.  Part of appreciating and celebrating any Pride is understanding where we have been, and the Pink Triangle illustrates how bad things can get.

San Francisco is the ONLY CITY IN THE WORLD with a giant Pink Triangle hovering over the city during its Pride Festivities.

The 28th annual Pink Triangle will be up for two full weeks from Sat June 17 to Sat July 1.  Please help take it down and lovingly fold it up for use next years.
