Besides the outdoor marches and gatherings, one of San Francisco’s most public displays is the giant cloth pink triangle installed for the weekend at the top of Twin Peaks to remember gay victims of the Holocaust. It has since been embraced by the gay community as a symbol of pride. The massive triangle can be seen for 20 miles on a clear day and is made up of over 175 bright pink canvasses and thousands of steel spikes. This will be the 22nd Pink Triangle display. The community has embraced the pink triangle as a symbol of pride, though it was once used in an attempt to label and shame. The event is free of charge and kids are encouraged to join in to combat hate against LGBTQ communities.
