Big, Pink and Spanish

Pink Triangle Monument, Sitges, SpainFrom Sydney comes the Gay News Blog. Along with lots of news and totty (oh, those Australians) was an article about this monument on the Catalan coast of Spain in Sitges.

The pink triangle is 4 feet tall and commemorates the community's stance against some gay bashing there ten years earlier. The inscription reads, ā€œSitges against Homophobia. October 1996-2006. Never again."

The Gay News Blog has been added to the Gay News links in the sidebar above.

I thought I would share this with you in case you were confused by the two Toms. Below is a photo of Chemical Brother, Tom Rowlands.
