Dear body freedom lovers,

you are all invited to our very first Nude Summer of Love Parade in honor of Jerry Garcia. (August 1st is his birthday and August 9th is the day he died.)

Please join us to celebrate the hippie movement and all the liberation that it brought to America and to the rest of the world.

The hippie movement started here, in San Francisco, and then it has and still continues to change the world. As we all know, body freedom, sexual freedom and freedom of choice and self-expression were very important aspects of that movement. Civil rights movement and massive rebellion against the oppression of the human race have also permanently changed our planet for the better. Today we take many of our freedoms for granted and often forget that it took a multi-generation world-wide movement to secure those rights and to make them a normal part of our daily lives.

Let’s get naked to honor and to celebrate the power of love and freedom! Let’s get naked to celebrate the beauty of an open heart and an open mind! Let’s celebrate the beauty of nature, of the human body and spirit!

The Summer of Love started in the 60-s but it never has to end. It is up to us to keep it alive in our hearts and minds. It is up to us to continue this tradition of liberation of the human race through love, understanding and compassion. It is up to us to continue pushing the envelope and reaching for greater and greater freedom. It is up to us to never give up and never settle for mediocrity.

Please join us in our celebration of the new spirituality and the new world! it is up to us to create that world, it is up to us to manifest our dreams and to inspire others to dream.

Please come as bare as you dare and please feel free to wear flowers, to paint peace signs on your body and to bring signs or objects that reflect the spirit of the Summer of Love!

We will gather at Jane Warner Plaza (Castro, 17th Street and Market Street) at 11 am. The parade will begin at 12 noon.
