Pink Triangle Day 2019
Today, we embrace love’s diversity in celebrating LGBTQI2S+ people, families, and communities. We recognize their resilience in the face of murderous acts of violence perpetrated by Bruce McArthur. We reaffirm our solidarity in their struggle against the oppression of the Ford PC government and wider societal homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.
In Nazi Germany, thousands of LGBTQI2S+ people were sent to concentration camps where they were identified by a pink triangle. To commemorate those victims and as a reminder that they are still targets for oppression, members of the LGBTQI2S+ community reclaimed the Pink Triangle as a symbol of pride.
