Published by the Outreach Fund for AIDS in 1989, this screenprint features several of Haring's iconic "Radiant Child" figures mimicking the "see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil" pose. The symbol of the pink triangle represents the gay rights movement. After being diagnosed with AIDS in the late 1980s, Haring became a vocal member of activist group ACT UP, which used the pink triangle as its logo and the slogan "SILENCE = DEATH." Haring worked on several promotional projects for ACT UP in his late career.
