“Celebrating gender and sexual minority communities”

Pink Dolphin Monument is dedicated to celebrating gender and sexual minority communities. Artist Joe Joe Orangias, writer Sarah Sloane, and scientist Frank Prega created the monument and donated it to R.A. Apffel Park/East Beach on Galveston Island, Texas, to further the Park’s mission and contribute to honoring diversity on the island. Orangias carved the monument’s central figure of a pink dolphin from red sandstone quarried nearby Corpus Christi, Texas. Inspired by Galveston’s celebratory and festive history, they borrowed the image of the pink dolphin from Galveston’s iconic Pink Dolphin Tavern as well as the logo of the Pink Posse, a group open to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, allied, pansexual, Two Spirit (LGBTQIAP2) activists on the island.
