Intentional Promotions Pin Badge

This pin badge made by Intentional Promotions shows the pink and black triangles as used by the Nazis in WW2 to label prisoners of concentration camps. The pink triangle was used to label gay men, trans women and bisexual men. The black triangle was used for a variety of people that the Nazis labelled as ‘anti-social’, including lesbians and sex-workers. The pink triangle has since become a symbol of the gay rights movement.
