Dear body freedom lovers,

our Nude Parade is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love!

The Summer of Love was born in San Francisco. It sent such powerful ripples of love throughout our whole planet that it changed the world forever.

It brought us a spiritual awakening of unprecedented proportions, which in turn lead to a powerful peace movement, sexual liberation, body freedom, women’s rights, greater human rights in general, animal rights, environmental protections and other grass roots movements on all fronts of human existence.

It brought us spiritual and emotional liberation through music, theater, dance and other forms of art. It brought us a much stronger and more real sense of community, communion with nature, unity of the heart and spirit that united nations across the world. We were invited to think and feel globally, to wake up from the nightmare of corporate greed and exploitation, to heal our emotional wounds and to find our true core of power in order to create a brilliant future that will unfold throughout generations to come.

The Summer of Love began in the 60s but it never ended. It continues to transform humanity in new ways that keep evolving and seducing more and more people into love, compassion and world peace.

We are honored to be part of this movement. We celebrate the spark of consciousness that spread like wild fire and woke us up. The world will never be the same. We will never be the same.

Please join us for a Nude Summer of Love Parade as we celebrate the body freedom that the hippie movement spread across America and the world.

Let’s shed our clothes. let’s shed our inhibitions, our self doubt and self hate. Let’s wake up to the love, to the flame that burns within our hearts. Let’s show the world that we as the human race have nothing to be ashamed of and nothing to fear. Let’s spread love, body freedom and sexual liberation! Let’s demonstrate that we are not afraid to be vulnerable, that we are not afraid to be free.
