Pink Triangle Park in the Castro, San Francisco.

It’s a memorial just on the side to the major intersection of Castro and Market Streets. I had walked through this small memorial several years ago, but this time visiting with my dear friend Mitchel brought additional significance.

The fifteen granite pylons rise in remembrance of the estimated fifteen thousand gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender victims who were persecuted, imprisoned and murdered during and after the reign of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
