- The Pink triangle
- September 6th, 2008
My gorgeous Aussie friend Meggy Bee asked me what I meant when I referenced the pink triangle. So I am replying in journal. World War II while the German Nazis were definitely focused heavily on the Jewish people. May they rest in peace. They were also very anti-homosexuality. They forced the Hebrews to wear the symbol of their faith: The star of David. They forced gay men to wear a pink triangle. These people were mercilessly rounded up and sent to concentration camps where they would be cruelly experimented on and/or killed just like the Jewish people were. The pink triangle is worn in remembrance of them. Since then it has become a wide spread symbol of pride.
