Description (Brief)
Pin-back buttons serve many purposes. They are efficient advertising vehicles, handy for fund-raising in support of a cause, concise statements of a person’s beliefs, a form of educational outreach, and convenient ice-breakers for conversation. This pin-back is an expression of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender) pride. It has a pink triangle and the Greek letter Lambda in lower-case, both of which are LGBT symbols.
