Pink Triangle Legacies: Coming Out in the Shadow of the Holocaust
|Location||Holocaust Museum Houston|
|Date||Wed, Jun 7, 6:30pm - 8:30pm|
Join Holocaust Museum Houston as historian Dr. Jake Newsome tells the dynamic and inspiring history of the LGBTQ+ community's original pride symbol by tracing the transformation of the pink triangle from a Nazi concentration camp badge into a widespread emblem of queer liberation, pride, and community. Drawing from unexplored archival sources and original interviews, Dr. Newsome showcases the voices of LGBTQ+ Holocaust victims and a rich tapestry of queer lives who found meaning in the pink triangle in a post-Holocaust world. The presentation will be followed by Q&A and a book signing.
Dr. Jake Newsome is a scholar of American and German LGBTQ+ history whose work as a public historian reaches global audiences. He currently works as a museum professional in Washington, DC.
