From the 1970s onwards the pink triangle has been adopted as a symbol of gay liberation and to remind people of the suffering of gay people in the Nazi period. ACT-UP used it the other way up (with the point at the top) to signify an active fight back against intolerance.
The gay village in Newcastle is sometimes referred to as the "Pink Triangle".
