Ho! Ho! Ho!

PHOTOS: Santas in Skivvies Spread Holiday Joy in the Castro

Nothing says holiday season like half-naked men in red briefs skipping through the Castro spreading joy from cheek to cheek. This Sunday, San Francisco’s longstanding tradition of religious irrelevance continued. And this time it was all for a good cause.

The Santa Skivvies Run is an annual fundraiser for HIV prevention as part of the SF AIDS Foundation’s Greater Than One program. The race began at the LookOut and went all around the gayborhood continuing around Dolores Park. Due to the chilly, overcast weather, Santas’ packages were noticeably smaller than last year. Luckily our GayCities photographer captured all the Santalicious action.

    Heh, hats off to the good folk that bared all (Near enough) for this event. I’ll have to see if there is one near me in the UK (Gay / strait / bi, count me in!), but with temperatures being close to zero, I’ll end up with an inch and 9 wrinkles :D

    Please remember that EVERYONE there was sexy because they raised over $27,000 for much needed AIDS Foundation’s Programs and Services, and purposely helped cause enough attention to get strangers to ask about the event…more awareness.
    Any verbal haters on this thread may not understand what this event was about, were probably still thinking about getting out of bed, or making hungover brunch plans.

    It takes all kinds to make our community.
    Love all of them. Even the crazy ones running around in red Skivvies on an extremely cold day.
