As extreme views seem to gain momentum in a time where living memory of WW2 atrocities is fading, it’s important that we take a moment to remember the tragedy of the Holocaust and commit to building our understanding of the causes and awareness of the victims, which included more than 100,000 gay men.  The pink triangle icon has its roots in the symbol gay men were required to wear as the Nazi regime divided and then persecuted the community.

Read this wonderful story of one gay man’s commitment to this goal in his role as librarian at the Holocaust Museum of Houston, his hopes and perspectives on bringing this knowledge to light in today’s world, then perhaps consider giving your local museum your support.
