2nd annual Nude Valentine’s Day Parade has received a permit from the SFPD and is scheduled to take place this Sunday, February 12 @ 11 AM @ Jane Warner Plaza in San Francisco. After the opening speech we will march to the City Hall and back. We gather at 11 am and start to march at noon.
All are invited to celebrate the power of love and the beauty of body freedom with us this Valentine’s Day weekend.
In today’s climate of hate brought on by the Trump administration it is especially important to cultivate and celebrate love. In today’s climate of oppression and bigotry it is especially important to demand freedom on all levels of human existence.
We want to show the world that we are not afraid, that we are united in the name of love and that we have nothing to hide and nothing to be ashamed of. We want our naked bodies to demonstrate that we don’t fight with weapons nor violence, but with our hearts and minds using the power of our spirit and the power of love. We don’t hide under military camouflage, nor do we cover our faces nor our bodies out of fear. We are not afraid to just be ourselves in the name of love, in the name of freedom.
In these challenging times it is more important than it has ever been to not despair, to believe in ourselves and to stand united in the name of love, in the name of a brighter future. It is up to us what world we choose to create.
