Nude party of the Sexual Freedom League in the Haight Ashbury, '67. I got the impression that the host tried to focus on the aspect of party fun; games people could play; body painting and spin the bottle. (A bottle of beer or what ever is laid on the floor and then someone would spin it. Who ever the bottle stopped at would have to take a drink, remove an item of clothing, then spin the bottle.)
About Gene Anthony
Thousands of people flocked to the corner of Haight and Ashbury during the Summer of Love, but few saw the unfolding phenomenon as clearly as Gene Anthony did. From his apartment one block up the hill, he witnessed the extraordinary pilgrimage of young people from across the country as they trooped to San Francisco in search of answers, approval and love, and he captured the compelling vignettes through his telling lens. Anthony's photographic talent, subjects and well-deserved acclaim extend far beyond the psychedelic period, but his ability to capture a mood on a face or the essence of an era from a simple street sign was recognized and refined during that time. His photographs have, in turn, become the myriad faces of the Summer of Love.
