Pink Saturday Is Here!

This week’s historic decisions by the Supreme Court and the surprise lifting of the Ninth Circuit’s stay have set the stage for an epic Pride Weekend!  We’ll be sending teams out for the Pink Party tonight, and there’s still time to sign up to volunteer if you’re interested.  Send us a note at info@castropatrol.org to let us know, or if you’re already a patrol volunteer you can sign up using the self-scheduling tool or email Phillip at patrol@castropatrol.org.

We got an early start to the Pink Saturday festivities by helping put up the Pink Triangle this morning.  Originally a symbol to shame LGBT prisoners in Nazi concentration camps, an inverted pink equilateral triangle has evolved into a symbol of LGBT Pride across the world.  San Francisco’s Pink Triangle has been displayed on top of Twin Peaks every Pride since 1995 and is set up each year solely through volunteer contributions.

Two of our patrol volunteers got up at sunrise and made their way to help install 2013’s Pink Triangle, and we were honored to have the opportunity.

We’ll see you tonight at the Pink Party!  Castro Community on Patrol wishes you a happy San Francisco Pride 2013, and reminds you to celebrate responsibly and keep yourself, your friends, and your neighbors safe!
