The annual installation of the Pink Triangle atop Twin Peaks is accomplished with a large group of volunteers under the direction of Pink Triangle founder Patrick Carney. Originally a guerrilla art project, the symbol of shame used by the Nazis to designate homosexuals in concentration camps that became a symbol for the Gay Rights movement in the 1970s was installed in the dead of night before Pride Sunday.  It is now a City sanctioned, month-long display, and a beloved San Francisco tradition.

Donate here to defer the Pink Triangle expenses

San Francisco Pride is proud to support Patrick Carney's Pink Triangle of Twin Peaks and to incorporate the Pink Triangle in our logo for this year and beyond.

As Patrick Carney said, "The Pink Triangle and the Rainbow Flag are the Yin Yang of the Gay Rights Movement. The Pink Triangle was forged in the Holocaust, and the Rainbow Flag was forged out of Nature, Love and Hope. So we proudly display both of them during Pride Month."
The San Francisco Pride Parade and Celebration is FREE, but it's not CHEAP!
