Homomonument - Amsterdam (Netherlands)

The Homomonument is a memorial in the center of Amsterdam, a capital of the Netherlands. With all the gays and lesbians who were subjected to persecution because of their homosexuality. Inaugurated on September 5, 1987, it takes the form of three large pink triangles made of granite, set in the ground to form an emotion, on the bank of the Keizersgracht canal, near the main church of Westerkerk. Homomonument was developed to "inspire and maintain lesbians and gays in their struggle against denial, oppression and discrimination." It was the world's first monument to please gays and lesbians who were killed by the Nazis.
