- Pink triangle rises again as symbol of pride for LGBT community
Saturday Jun 24, 2017
Pink triangle rises again as symbol of pride for LGBT community The pink triangle was first used by the Nazis during the Holocaust in concentration camps to identify LGBT prisoners, but has since been reclaimed by the LGBT community as a symbol of pride, said Patrick Carney, who hoisted the first pink triangle atop Twin Peaks in the dead of night in 1995. Volunteers on Saturday had on white T-shirts with a pink triangle and the words “Friends of the Pink Triangle” in pink letters. Hammers were strewn about as people finished setting up under the haze of the San Francisco fog and snacked on doughnuts and croissants. Not far away, the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Band rehearsed, the melodic sounds of the trumpets and clarinets traveling through the area. Some people had on rainbow socks, rainbow hats and rainbow belts with pink balloons, carrying flowers in hand as bubbles floated in the air. Shortly after the volunteers completed their morning duties, Hannah Portner, 17, of Walnut Creek took a seat atop the triangle. “It was on my bucket list,” she said, brushing back her pink and blue hair from her eyes while she pulled out a black notebook from a paint-stained backpack. Under numerous pages titled “Life Goals,” Portner checked off the item she had scribbled down years before: to partake in the pink triangle’s assembling. At night, the triangle will be illuminated by a projector with videos of people’s lips blowing kisses to the world, a showing of love, Carney said. Trump “has allowed us to embrace and remember our core California values,” Wiener said, citing support for immigrant rights, the LGBT community, women and health care.
