Pink Saturday | 2017 San Francisco Pride

The night before the Pride Parade, The Pink Party typically takes over the streets of the Castro by closing them to cars and then pumping multiple sound stages to celebrate a long-time tradition of fabulous, queer parties, but… unfortunately in 2016 the party is cancelled.

From SFist: “Coordinated and run by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence since 1995, the group last year declined to continue organizing the event as incidents of violence and the growing need for security made it an increasingly costly — not to mention an at times gay-unfriendly — affair. Last year (you surely remember) the LGBT Community Center swooped in, renamed the event Pink Party (because the Sisters are holding onto the Pink Saturday name), and held it earlier in the day. The Center is unable to do so this year, Castro Supervisor Scott Wiener told the BAR, and no other organization has offered to deal with it either.”
