2017 marks fifty years since the Summer of Love happened in San Francisco and reverberated into other cultures throughout the world. NowShareLove is excited to celebrate this time period, where so many of our modern freedoms of self-expression and equality originated.  

In 2017, The California Historical Society and San Francisco Travel are teaming up to present a year-long series of events celebrating the anniversary of the Summer of Love and its lingering impact. Join us as we document these inspiring stories and the people behind them. See our calendar of upcoming events below to participate in the happenings.

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?
