  • Abstract
    "So we are now PINK TRIANGLE. We chose this name because of its historical connections with the gay movement in that the pink triangle was first used as a symbol of degradation against gay women and men in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. From a symbol of degradation it has been adopted by the international gay community as a symbol of pride. Pride in ourselves as gay people and pride and anger when we remember the more than a quarter of a million people who were forced to wear it to their deaths in the camps. The pink triangle was worn by both women and men and so it is a common bond between us. A bond that can be strengthened to fight against all forms of sexist oppression. In many ways the struggle of gay women against their oppressors is not the same as for gay men and this is something that the men will have to realize and work on. Freedom of expression of gay rights is not something which can be done in isolation from the struggles of other oppressed minorities."-- Editorial, Page 2, No.1 (14 May 1979).
