Pink Triangles is a very moving and powerful film about homo-
phobia'--''fc'he fear anc^ persecution of lesbians and gay men. It is
also a film about the nature of discrimination and oppression.
The film was made by a collective of nine women and men—lesbian,
gay and straight.
Cathy Hoffman, a member of the collective, talked about some
of the things they wanted out of the film. »’We wanted to attack
some of the stereotypes and myths, but not so much through human
interest stories as through documenting that sort of discrimina
tion. And then to say to people that if there are ways in your
life in which you feel discriminated against, we think you can
identify with part of what the gay experience is all about."
She was surprised by ^he reception the film received. "When
the film ended (opening night) there was a moment of silence.
All of us were standing there wondering what people thought.*
Then people started clapping and clanping and cryin^r and cheering
and everyone ;)ust went wild, standing and cheering, it was so
moving that our community approved and appreciated the work we
had done."
