Created by the Silence=Death Collective in 1986, this design was originally produced as a wheat pasting that peppered New York City to raise awareness about the AIDS epidemic. The collective intentionally eschewed any photographic imagery, instead reclaiming the pink triangle assigned to LGBTQ+ prisoners in Nazi death camps set against a black background with ’Silence=Death” printed across the bottom. It has since become a defining symbol of queer pride and resistance. Proceeds from the sale of every print will go to benefit Visual AIDS and the New York City AIDS Memorial.
