The Pink Man's Burden is a term used to refer to a sentiment within the Western world's LGBT communities that urges for a force of reaction and pacification against homophobia in the nations of the Third World. It was used in an essay by a Dutch activist concerning the rise of LGBT populism and nativism as personified by Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn; it was particularly pointed towards the sentiments and activism of British activist Peter Tatchell.[1]

It is based on the term "White Man's burden" in reference to the Western sentiment that those of European ancestry and the countries which they led should engage themselves in the affairs of "lesser races" in order to better them and bring them up to Western standards.
