If only I had heard about this sooner . . . Sigh . . .
It might not exactly be a love-in replete with the likes of Jefferson Airplane and purple microdot, but Saturday’s clothes-free parade and dance celebrating the 50th anniversary of the summer of love in San Francisco might be pretty groovy.
It’s questionable if the march will send a ripple of peace and love throughout the world like the summer of love did. But it will send a message about body freedom, and where better to do it than in San Francisco.
So, if you’re going to San Francisco, as the song goes, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair . . . and little else.
The event has been organized by well-known naturism and peace & love activist Gypsy Taub who, according to Time Out, had this to say in a release: “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.”
Attendees are being asked to adorn their body with painted peace signs and the like.
