During Pride week, a giant pink triangle is installed on Twin Peaks. Andrew Ramer talks about how the pink triangle went from being a symbol of persecution to a symbol of gay pride. Presented in partnership with Congregation Sha’ar Zahav.
Andrew Ramer is a writer whose work is grounded in narratives from parallel realities. He’s the author of Torah Told Different: Stories for a Pan/Poly/Post-Denominational Era, Queering the Text: Biblical, Medieval, and Modern Jewish Stories, and Two Flutes Playing, which has been called a gay underground classic. The world’s first ordained interfaith maggid (sacred storyteller), he is a longtime member of Congregation Sha’ar Zahav in San Francisco, in whose marvelously innovative siddur many of his prayers and blessings appear.
