The ‘Pink Triangles’ of WWII (virtual)

October 18, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

In recent decades, the world has started to confront the experiences of the “pink triangles” — approximately 15,000 homosexuals sent to Nazi concentration camps between 1933 and 1945. These victims were joined with thousands of other homosexuals who faced their own forms of persecution at the hands of the Nazis outside of the camp walls. The pink triangles have been remembered in the United States in complex and nuanced ways from the Nuremberg Trials to the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This talk on Wednesday, October 18, 6pm by Dr. Thomas R. Dunn, a researcher of the LGBTQ+ past and professor of Communication Studies at Colorado State University, shares this far lesser-known part of the story. Please visit www.mcl.org to register to receive the link to program.
