Silence = Death Pride Palette

$32.56

This is the Silence = Death Pride Palette!

The Silence = Death Project, founded by Avram Finkelstein and others in 1987 to raise awareness during the AIDs epidemic. The group originally started as an AIDs support group, which quickly became political. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Finkelstein knew that posters were often used to raise awareness in political campaigns, so the pink triangle and its corresponding slogan, Silence = Death, were printed on posters around New York City to raise awareness in the midst of the AIDs epidemic.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The slogan was cryptic but had two main messages: to prompt the LGBTQ+ community to organize politically around AIDS, and to imply to anyone outside the community that serious action was being taken.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
There’s too much history here to put in our caption – but we hope to have given you a brief insight into the importance of this campaign. What do you know about the symbol? ⁠⁠

 

We will be donating 25% of our Pride palette sales to Community Southwark, who support charities, community groups and individuals through capacity building, volunteering and social action.
