Bent /bent/: adjective. A derogatory term used in some European countries to refer to homosexuals. This ground-breaking play created awareness at a time when there was little historical research or broad knowledge regarding the Nazi persecution of homosexuals and the significance of the pink triangle. The success of the play and its strength as a story earned Bent nominations for both a Pulitzer and a Tony Award. To this day, Bent remains one of the finest pieces of theatre about tolerance, the endurance of love and the necessity of human dignity. (
