Urban Outfitters Tapestries Resembling Nazi Concentration Camp Uniforms Spark Outrage In LGBT, Jewish Community
Urban Outfitters’ use of symbols reminiscent of Nazi oppression on home decor has sparked outrage in gay and Jewish communities here in the Bay Area, and around the world.
It has become a Pride Weekend ritual… the installation of the Pink Triangle on Twin Peaks. The one-acre rose-colored symbol has been a part of the annual event for the last 19 years, and can be seen for miles and miles.
Nearly 200 people spent Saturday morning affixing 175 bright pink tarps with 5,000 steel spikes to create a symbolic pink triangle that stretches nearly an acre of Twin Peaks in San Francisco.
A series of events are planned through the weekend for the 42nd annual San Francisco LGBT Pride celebration.
San Francisco’s Mayor Ed Lee celebrated gay pride at the Pink Triangle installation ceremony and praised New York’s ruling that will allow gay marriage.
