Volunteers put up annual pink triangle atop Twin Peaks in SF

A symbol of gay pride covers part of San Francisco's Twin Peaks this weekend.

Volunteers spent Saturday morning, setting up the annual pink triangle display for Pride weekend.

It was first installed in 1996.

There are 175 bright pink canvasses, and five thousand steel spikes that help pin down each panel.

Each year, organizers have white canvasses, that they paint bright pink, and then set them atop Twin Peaks.

The pink triangle serves as a way to remember gay people, who were persecuted and killed in concentration camps in Nazi Germany.

Organizers say it reminds people about the past, while working towards a better future.

On Saturday's Mornings on 2, KTVU reporter Christien Kafton talked to the group that erected the pink triangle, about their motivations for the project, and their message to the community.
