Pink Triangle Legacies: Coming Out in the Shadow of the Holocaust

Sylvia Vlosky Yaschik Jewish Studies Center, Arnold Hall (Room 100) 96 Wentworth Street, Charleston

Jake Newsome tells the inspiring history of the LGBTQ+ community's original pride symbol by tracing the transformation of the pink triangle from a Nazi camp badge into an emblem of queer liberation. Drawing from unexplored archival sources and original interviews, his talk showcases the voices of LGBTQ+ Holocaust victims and a rich tapestry of queer people who found meaning in the pink triangle in a post-Holocaust world.
