Summer Solstice Party

Ocean Beach, San Francisco

5:30 PM, All Ages


There is a magic that can be found in both songs and summer. For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, the Summer Solstice is a time of celebration, of honoring the light, our connection to the Sun and the Earth. The warmth of the sun and the long, hot days continually remind us of how good it is to find a balance between intense activity and simply relaxing and grooving out in nature.

Join us for silent disco yoga, Live DJs, dancing, sunset watching and love. We’re excited to groove with you and support the Do It for the Love Foundation with half of all proceeds supporting healing through music and community.

You can expect to feel magic in every ounce of your being.

6pm – 7pm: Silent disco beach yoga with Julianne and Tanya G (GrooveWell)

Julianne is inspired by her deep connection to nature. Her style is a peaceful, playful, full of life and love kind of vibe. Together with DJ Tanya G and YOU! we’ll co-create a soulful oceanside journey. Her nostalgic and Tropical Funkumbia rhythms will turn the dance floor into a ceremony of healing and energizing empowerment.  

7-9pm: Silent Disco Dance Party with Live DJs

7:30pm – 8:15pm: Hip Hop Dance sesh with Walker Fisher (AHmazing dance teacher to lead you in groovy moves for your evening)

Giant Pink Triangle Set Up

North Beach, San Francisco

7 AM,  All Ages


Celebrate “Generations of Strength” at the 2018 San Francisco Pride Celebration. Immerse yourself into two-days of community engagement and entertainment. See the main stage lineup. View the community stage lineup.

Besides the outdoor marches and gatherings, one of Pride SF’s most public displays is the giant cloth pink triangle installed for the weekend at the top of Twin Peaks to remember gay victims of the Holocaust.

The pink triangle was used by the Nazis in concentration camps to identify and shame homosexuals. It has since been embraced by the gay community as a symbol of pride.

The massive triangle can be seen for 20 miles on a clear day and is made up of over 175 bright pink canvassas and thousands of steel spikes.

This will be the 23rd Pink Triangle display. The community has embraced the pink triangle as a symbol of pride, though it was once used in an attempt to label and shame. This must remind people of the hatred of the past to help educate others so that what happened in the Holocaust won’t be forgotten and won’t be repeated.

Volunteer: Help Set Up the Giant Pink Triangle

There’s usually water and some sweet snacks available. Fashionable Pink Triangle Tee-shirts will be provided to all who help.

Pink Triangle – Installation/set-up Saturday June 23, 2018 Installation from 7:00 am – 10 am Commemoration Ceremony at 10:30 am

Pink Triangle – De-Installation (Take-down after parade) Sunday June 24, 2018 De-installation from 4:30 pm – 8 pm

Even just an hour on either day (or both) will be a huge help.

Bring both a hammer and work gloves. Dress in layers. Watch out for poison oak. Wear sunscreen and closed-toed shoes.
