In addition to a standard Easter celebration, San Franciscans invented their unusual Easter entertainment. When the world solemnizes the greatest Christian feast of the Resurrection, some local men take part in the Hunky Jesus contest and local women—in the Foxy Mary contest correspondingly.

The spectacle, supported by the gay community, may be easily considered blasphemy and insulting to Christians. However, it tells something about the atmosphere of this city where weird​ has become the new normal. Come to the Golden Gate Park's Hellman Hollow to witness the show!
