Music by Tony Moran

At the time of this page’s most recent publishing — April 20, 2024 — we are patiently waiting to receive Mr. Moran’s most current bio.  What we can say is that he has been a DJ since 1981, and that his set will be phenomenal.

Our Beneficiary

National AIDS Memorial Grove is a dedicated space in the national landscape where millions of Americans touched directly or indirectly by AIDS can gather to heal, hope, and remember.

For all the promising prospects on the horizon, AIDS continues to invade our lives, violate our past, and rob us of our comfortable assumptions about the future. The sacred ground of this living memorial honors all who have confronted this tragic pandemic both those who have died and those who have shared their struggle, kept the vigils, and supported each other during the final hours.

6pm to 1:00am

1015 Folsom. Flaggers get Access to a private Flagger + Performers lounge, with RSVP — and be sure to bring your flag bag! There will be some water and gatorade provided. The stage is open to flaggers ONLY for the first two hours, from 6pm – 8pm. After that we have blocks of time on stage interspersed with go gos and acts related to the theme. PLUS throughout the evening, just off our Flagger + Performers lounge, we have a blacklight alley just above the main stage, where up to three flaggers are able to flag at one time, all night long. There will be a flagging performance, likely based on some sort of bond-themed dance mix, or otherwise related to the night’s kinky-espionage-on-a-tropical-island theme.

2024 Partners

Flagging In The Park is proud to become a Program of Grass Roots Gay Rights Foundation (GRGRF). GRGRF will continue offering a $2,000 matching grant for each of our 2024 events. Proving it takes a village, this event would not happen without the support of these partners: National AIDS Memorial Grove, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Flagger Central, The Lookout, Ryan Clouse, and the many donors that fund us so every dollar collected in the Grove goes to our beneficiaries, and the many volunteers that help with set up and strike. Make sure to let them know you appreciate their help with FITP!
