Additional Information: 

The pink triangle behind the text on this button is the symbol that was used in Nazi concentration camps to identify male prisoners who were sent there because they were homosexual. The pink triangle marked gay men the way the yellow star was used to identify Jews. Originally intended as a badge of shame, the pink triangle (often inverted from its Nazi usage) has been reclaimed as an international symbol of gay pride and the gay rights movement, and according to Wikipedia, is second in popularity only to the rainbow flag. The text of “End the War Against Gays”  calls for an end to the discrimination and persecution of homosexuals worldwide.
