This was a simple but nice tribute. Recommend it if you are around this area but not worth it to go out of your way to come here.

If you don't know what you looking for you surly won't find this monument if symbolism. Three visable triangles representing the past, present and future. One in the canal, one on the ground in the plain and one lifted slightly away in the plain. If...More

We walked right past it. We had our smart phone out and were walking along the map. Then, my daughter said, I think we passed it? We turned around and noticed an elevated triangle. Then another that was not elevated. Then, I used Google images...More

Is there anything like this anywhere else? And this monument was placed 30 years ago when the AIDS crisis was raging. So it's unique, simple, important. And yes, they should lose the urinal.

Take a look at the photo of this monument. There’s a urinal about 3 meters away from the monument and police officers question someone on the street. So, I guess it’s good that there’s a monument commemorating the deaths and suffering of the LGBT community...More

You can easily miss it. It's just steps with flowers on them. There's a small sign. The gesture is much appreciated though.

Except a bunch of flowers, there is nothing more to see. Looking at the photograph would be enough. Waste of time. Maybe if you want to put flowers there, you should go
