The pink triangle atop Twin Peaks was lit June 1 to kick off Pride Month. Ben Davis, left, founder and chief visionary officer of the arts nonprofit Illuminate, joined House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), Mayor London Breed, and Patrick Carney, co-founder of the installation that is now in its 27th year.
Illuminate worked on the LED lighting installation, as it did last year. Speakers included the aforementioned Breed and Pelosi, along with Consul General of Ukraine in San Francisco Dmytro Kushneruk, gay state Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), trans "Jeopardy!" champion Amy Schneider, San Francisco City Attorney David Chiu, Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), and gay Supervisors Rafael Mandelman and Matt Dorsey of districts 8 and 6, respectively.
The San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band (the city's official marching band) performed, as did singer Leanne Borghesi. The pink triangle will remain on display through June 30.Help keep the Bay Area Reporter going in these tough times.
