Julius Turman's 50th Birthday

A Celebration Fit for A King

Fifty is a remarkable milestone to hit in one’s life. It means one has experienced so much in life and has wisdom and experience in their back pocket to excel in the next fifty years. Julius Turman, a pillar in the San Francisco community and current Vice President of the San Francisco Police Commission, held a stunning affair at the San Francisco Design Center that was as phenomenal and fabulous as he is, and Ivory Sky Media was on deck to capture the event.

Julius’ family, friends and coworkers came to celebrate a man who has done so much for the San Francisco LGBTQ community, the city of San Francisco itself, and for them personally. The night was filled with laughter, speeches, dancing and a few singing performances, one which featured, Leilani Bush, whose wedding we did earlier in the year

I was able to capture the beautiful decor of the venue, while my assistant Quinn captured all of Juilius’ guests mingling and enjoying the event before the night’s program begun. 

Many of Julius’ friends from his childhood, family and close friends got on stage to say a few words about their good friend that enlightened many on how dynamic of a man Julius is.

In Julius’ own words, “Tonight…is not, and never was meant to be and never will be a celebration of me. It is a celebration of the love, support and friendship I’ve received from so many people.”
