Weitzman Museum — Pink Triangle Legacies: Coming Out in the Shadow of the Holocaust

June 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Date and Time: Thursday, June 15th, 5:00pm

Location: The Weitzman Museum

Join us in commemorating Pride Month with a compelling discussion on the intersection of LGBTQ+ history and the Holocaust. Delve into the legacy of the pink triangle and how knowledge of the Holocaust shaped the fight for queer liberation and influenced American gay rights activism. As a symbol used by the Nazis to identify and persecute queer men and transgender women, the pink triangle has since been reclaimed as a symbol of resistance and pride. Our panel of experts include include organizers and activists from Queer communities across Philadelphia including Galia Godel (J. Proud Philly), Jazmyn Henderson (ACT UP Philadelphia) and Mark Segal (Philadelphia Gay News). Together the group will explore the significance of the pink triangle and its impact on LGBTQ+ history and culture.

The event will be moderated by W. Jake Newsome, author of “Pink Triangle Legacies: Coming Out in the Shadow of the Holocaust,” who will guide us through the complex history and meaning of this important symbol.
