Happy Pride Month Babes!!

Hello Friends!
As a special treat for you, we have compiled some of the finest performers, DJs, and community organizations for a very special event this Pride month: SHAMELESS in Oakland on Thursday, June 23rd.

We are also bringing back SHIPS UNDER THE SEA! It was so much fun last year, lets do it again at Underground in San Francisco.

Check out more info below and if you'd like to be involved, please contact us!  We appreciate help with promotion, workin the door, after-hours massages and body work...heh. 

Anyways, WE LOVE YOU and want to make this an amazing event for you and your friends!
Please remember to be safe while you are out celebrating.
