Event Details

Put on those lavender tinted glasses and celebrate 50 years of love. Commemorate the 50th anniversary of the “Summer of Love” by paying tribute to the queer movers and shakers who influenced the movement.

From noon to 5 pm in the National AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park, some amazing DJs will help get you into that groovy mood – Brontez Purnell, Malik Mays, and more.

Plus, they’re hosting a delicious potluck, so please bring your best covered dish, as well as your own libations (BYOB), blankets, park fun (flagging, hoops, etc) and love. Thanks to a generous donation from Rainbow Grocery, they’ll also have some fresh fruit and light snacks to help augment the community picnic.

This is a free event for all ages, so tie-dye the whole family and come on down. Instead of an entry fee, they will be collecting donations to benefit both The GLBT Historical Society and the National AIDS Memorial Grove.

This special Pride Week kick-off on the cusp of the summer solstice will feature a fabulous afternoon of 1960s magic, including:

  • Pride Honoree and rock & roll legend Blackberry opening the rite of passage in song with the authentic “67”
  • Special performances by Liam Ocean and Jubilee (Jordan Joel)
  • Rad workshops (including spiritual development, astrology, intimacy, hooping, and queer history)
  • Facepaint by Ismael, Phoenix, Joia and others
  • Plus displays by local artists, an art creation space, massage, cuddle space, giant bubbles, and more

You are encouraged to go see “Lavender Tinted Glasses: A Groovy Gay Look at the Summer of Love” at the GLBT History Museum. Curated by Joey Cain, this exhibition showcases Janis Joplin, Allen Ginsberg, Kenneth Anger, and Gavin Arthur — just a few of the LGBTQ artists and activists who helped to ignite the passion of the people during the Vietnam War.
