Historian Dr. Jake Newsome tells the dynamic and inspiring history of the LGBTQIA+ community’s original Pride symbol by tracing the transformation of the pink triangle from a Nazi concentration camp badge into a widespread emblem of liberation, pride, and community. Drawing from unexplored archival sources and original interviews, Dr. Newsome showcases the voices of LGBTQIA+ Holocaust victims and a rich tapestry of gay lives who found meaning in the pink triangle in a post- Holocaust world. The presentation will be followed by Q&A and a book signing. Books will be on sale at the event.
