Welcome to the blog

Pink Triangle is a new blog, set up in March 2008 by the Pink Triangle Trust. The PTT was launched as a charity (number 1015629) in the UK in 1992 with the aim of educating lesbian and gay people about aspects of Humanism, while alerting Humanists to those things that affect homosexuals. This blog is its new forum.

While all the views here may not necessarily reflect the policies of the PTT, and shouldn't be taken to do so, there will, we hope, be lively discussion concerning the issues raised above, and wider ones, too, concerning gays and lesbians and a life that doesn't have to include religion.

So we'll be posting news and comment concerning matters that affect the LGB community and humanists and secularists, with comment if appropriate, and hope you'll join in the discussion in the comments area.

You can find out more about the PTT on its website.

Welcome aboard, and we hope to hear more from you soon.

Well done for setting this up, and hope it goes well.

I also hope it will be a resource that gets used to the max by all the humanist community, not just GALHA and the more 'gay friendly' ones,

'Tis the merry, merry month of May and Humanists have reasons to celebrate. May saw the birth of world famous Humanists: John Scott Haldane, Thomas Henry Huxley, Pierre Curie, Bertrand Russell, John Stuart Mill and Andrei Sakharov.

It was Haldane who said: "The creator, if He exists, has a special preference for beetles".
Why this should be so is be a good question to put to believers in 'intelligent design'. There are 400,000 species of beetles but only 8,000 species of mammals.

I suggest a May toast to each of these scientists. Cheers.
