San Francisco 2008 Pride Events Calendar


Pink Triangle Installation & Commemoration Ceremony: Friends of the Pink Triangle is a group of volunteers who, on a tiny budget, construct a gigantic pink triangle on Twin Peaks that can be seen for 20 miles.

The goal is to educate others to what can happen when hatred and bigotry become law as in Nazi Germany. The Pink Triangle is one of history's reminders of intolerance and hate. We must never forget past atrocities or they will happen again. History repeats itself. Installation 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., Commemoration Ceremony 10:30 a.m., Twin Peaks, San Francisco.
