Easter Sunday in The Park!
Every year on Easter The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence–or the “cross-dressing nuns of fun” as locals call them–host an all-day party in Golden Gate Park complete with traditional Easter egg hunt.
Somewhat less traditional? The Hunky Jesus and Foxy Mary contests, some burlesque, and a bonnet contest. It’s a widely beloved event, and many people bring the whole family.
All funds raised during the event go to local gay charities raising vital funds for their contiued endeavours.
There’s a family-friendly Children’s Easter celebration at 11 am, but the real fun follows after the kids head home with adult-friendly fare like the Easter Bonnet Contest, burlesque, a trashcan marching band, everyone’s favorite blasphemous hoot, and of course the Foxy Mary and the Hunky Jesus contests.
San Francisco is split into several areas but the main 2 are The Castro and Soma, with Soma being the area the where you will find Folsom Street, and most of the leather and fetish bars. With there being so many gay bars we have had to put 2 maps in and have found hotels for each area that have good reviews, SOMA, Best Western Carriage Inn, InterContinental Hotel San Francisco, Courtyard by Marriott San Francisco Downtown, Palace Hotel, Palomar San Francisco, a Kimpton Hotel, Parc 55 Wyndham San Francisco – Union Square.
