All You Need Is Love
On June 25, 1967, over 400 million people in 25 countries heard The Beatles debut All You Need Is Love on Our World, which was the first live global satellite broadcast on television. We celebrated the anniversary on The Magic Bus at the LGBT Pride Parade using the song to build a bridge to a more cooperative and loving future.
Sunday, June 25th, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE by sending sky writers up to draw interlocking hearts over San Francisco’s 47th Annual LGBT Pride Parade! Did you see it?
