An odd memorial appeared on Kells Lane, Darlinghurst, two months ago. It was a pink upside-down triangle, attributed to The Invisible Man, that said ‘Remembering “Lani”‘ in big letters.
Another Invisible Man plaque appeared this week on Taggarts Lane, Surry Hills, near the Hope Street Mission.
This time, the words are inscribed on a red inverted triangle.

In the comments for the Kells Lane memorial, Phil said there are a couple of similar plaques on Gibbons Street in the Alexandria/Redfern area.
They’re near Redfern station and are references to the gay-hate murders of Bill Allen and Richard Johnson in the late 80s in the vicinity of Alexandria Park.

Richard N. Johnson 33 15/1/90 Invisible Man Plaque ‘09
Both are written on inverted pink triangles with black lettering.
It’s a mystery. Is it memorial, advocacy, awareness raising, art?
