Castro Holocaust Memorial

For Holocaust Memorial Day , PinkNews looks at some of the monuments for gay and lesbian victims of the Holocaust that are in place across the world.

Earlier today, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg become the first party leader to back the inclusion of the symbols of gay oppression to be included in the National Holocaust Memorial.He told PinkNews: “The symbol of the pink triangle, once intended as a badge of shame, today stands as an international symbol of freedom and pride. From the dark shadow of history rises a neon emblem of diversity and hope. “Any memorial remembering the Holocaust should recognise the persecution of non-Jewish victims whilst maintaining the centrality of the six million murdered Jews.”

Though the UK does not currently have a permanent memorial for gay Holocaust victims, there are currently a number of others around the world.
