Pink Triangle Organizers Seek Volunteers; SF CA

by Accidental Bear

It’s Pride Month and that means Patrick Carney and others at Friends of the Pink Triangle are looking for volunteers to help with this year’s installation.

This year marks the 16th installation of the pink triangle on Twin Peaks. The triangle is intended to help educate the public to what can happen when hatred and bigotry become law; the symbol was used by the Nazis to identify gay prisoners during World War II.

Carney said that about 100 people are needed Saturday, June 25 from 7 to 10 a.m. Volunteers are asked to bring a hammer and to wear closed-toe shoes and sunscreen. Then at 10:30 a.m. the dedication ceremony will take place featuring local political leaders, Pride Parade grand marshals, the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, and others.

The pink triangle will be up for two days. Carney said that people are also needed to help take it down on Sunday, June 26 beginning at 5 p.m. READ MORE Via B.A.R.
