JD Samson making things spin at Everyone in London over the weekend. Next stop Palm Springs Pride at our loco little swimmin’ and sleepin’ spot


San Francisco, London and everywhere.  
After some years of gay-ins early in ’70s Golden Gate Park, on this day in 1978, San Francisco Pride pushed through Market as Gay Freedom Day. That day was the coming out of the Gilbert Baker-designed Rainbow Flag that has become a banner for the rights of everyone. 
Tomorrow in Shoreditch at Ace Hotel we’re rainbow flagging it up with JD Samson and our collaborative Pride party Everyone. Everyone’s invited. We’ve got a Pride playlist to blast on the ‘phones as you get ready for tonight. It’s the second part of our series of Pride celebrations with JD at Ace outposts in LA, London, New York, and Palm Springs. (And number three Pride is this weekend in New York City.)
You can dance, you can sing, you can make a team of hi-fivers and hi-five everyone you see if you want. You can be free and be together with free people. As part of the party, JD created a hand-screened shirt and a poster that you can pick up to pack pride anywhere you wear clothes or have walls. And proceeds go to help good people, too.

Downtown Los Angeles 
In opposition to Anita Bryant’s “Save Our Children” campaign — the first major organized opposition to the gay rights movement. 
This weekend at Ace DTLA we’re taking a more positive bend. It’s the first in a series of Pride parties along with JD Samson to celebrate everyone just as they want to be. While we won’t be throwing pies, we definitely will be making our own pie in the sky right here on earth.

Los Angeles / London / New York / Palm Springs
Pride is coming. And everyone is invited. This year we’re tickled all colors of the rainbow that JD Samson is teaming with us to pop the pride parties for our locals in LA / LDN / NYC / PSP. JD’s been a pardner to Ace here for a hot minute, and it’s with worlds of pleasure that we work together again. The cherry on top: JD went out and made a special mixtape for our aural delight. Participate. Be active. Let’s be out and let’s do this. #everyonespride

Midtown, New York City

24 BY 36 is 36 artists producing 24 works overnight at Ace Hotel.
12 solo artists and 12 collaborative duos hotel-camping in New York.

We’ve invited a handful of artists to storm the castle, prompted with poems, scores, instructions, drawings, and scraps. We provide the room, the bottle of wine and the foundation-year-style Art Bin full of charcoal sticks and kneaded erasers. And then we get out of their way.

It kicked off last week with a collaborative effort by Sto and his invited accomplice Asha Man. The two laid down a tarp, made an altar, installed tons of small works around said altar, got nude, body-painted, evoked some spirits and in the end, made us a drawing. 

Tonight we’re posting up with JD Samson
