Pink Triangle

The Pink Triangle:
From Mark of Oppression to Symbol of Gay Pride

Via Zoom

presented by Tomas L. Griebling, MD, MPH
in recognition of the museum’s Pride Month programming

This fascinating presentation traces the philatelic history of the symbol,  from its use in Nazi Germany to its reappropriation for the Pride movement during the late 20th century.  Includes audience Q and A.

The museum is also hosting Dr. Griebling’s 16-panel Pink Triangle 
retrospective exhibit that includes covers, postcards, and stamps that relate a compelling and oft-underrepresented aspect of postal history and society. On view through the end of Pride Month (June 30).
