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.
