San Francisco Pride community grand marshal Honey Mahogany, center, pops the champagne atop Twin Peaks Saturday, June 17, as the installation of the pink triangle was celebrated at a ceremony. At left is city Assessor-Recorder Joaquín Torres. The pink triangle reverted to canvas-only this year, after a few years of seeing it lit with LED lights. Patrick Carney, co-founder of the project, said it's important to remember that the pink triangle represents reclaiming a symbol used by the Nazis into international recognition of the LGBTQ community. San Francisco Mayor London Breed, members of the Board of Supervisors, SF Pride officials, and other grand marshals also attended the event.
