About Triangle House
Of the many symbols that resonate in LGBTQIA+ communities, the triangle holds a special significance. In the mathematical form of the Delta, the triangle represents change, a characteristic that defines the LGBTQIA+ fight for social equality and social justice. A profound metaphor for the resiliency of LGBTQIA+ communities, the triangle is the only geometric shape impervious to distortion and deformation.
The upside-down version of the triangle is a reminder of the LGBTQIA+ community’s painful history during the holocaust. Originally intended as a badge of shame, the pink triangle and black triangle have been reclaimed as international symbols of gay pride and lesbian pride.
You do not have to identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer to live in Triangle House. It is open to any student, whether LGBTQIA+ or Ally identified, who wants to deepen their understanding of these topics.
