The 1987 March On Washington For Lesbian Gay Rights, postcard, October 11, 1987, Washington, D.C. Front of the postcard reads, "Come out...Come out... wherever you are." Back of the card reads, "A pink triangle was used by the Nazis to identify and persecute homosexuals in the same way a yellow star was used for the Jews. An estimated 250,000 gay people were exterminated before and during World War II by the Third Reich. Today, the triangle has become a symbol of pride and struggle for gays around the world whose freedom and safety remain in peril."
