Folsom Street Fair 2014

There has been a lot of discussion about the lack of leather at the Folsom Street Fair, but as I look through my photos there are still plenty of men wearing leather.  Of course the street fair is about celebrating fetishes and kinks, no matter what they may be. It seems that the definition of what is kinky or a fetish has grown to include many more including sports gear, rubber and neoprene, furry costumes, cosplay and so on.  There were a number of drag queens walking the fair and they seemed to garner the most attention at times.  There were several that were amazing!  Kink.com drew large crowds to their performances of BDSM as did Mr S Leather.  The wrestlers were another favorite, as hot, sweaty guys grappled with each other and invited audience participation.  Wrestling singlets have become very popular as fetish wear, so it was often hard to tell who was into wrestling and who just liked the look.

The stage by the SF Eagle was dotted with flaggers or flow artists and was spectacular.  The movement and color was a great addition to the music and was fun to watch.  Below are a couple of photos by Some Men Photography that show some of the diversity of the fair.  To see more photos, here is a link to Some Men Photography gallery.

Mr S Leather Store Party 2014 – Friday

Mr S Leather extended their usual pre-folsom store party to include Friday and Saturday before Folsom.  There were lots of men from around the world in town for Folsom and many stopped in at Mr S to find a new outfit or accessory for the Sunday street fair. Its always fun to see the guys at the street fair and see what they decided to wear and what new gear the picked up at Mr S. The store party is a preview of what you will see on Sunday, but without the tourists. Just lots of hot men getting trying on leather and gear to see what looks good on them.  Follow the link here to see more photos from the store party.

Best Buck of the Bay 2014

The San Francisco Gay Rodeo was held in Duncans Mills and Guerneville this year and was a great event.   The Friday welcome pool party was full of hot cowboys, beautiful drag queens and folk who came for the rodeo events.  The weekend was packed with parties, dances and rodeo events.  It’s been a few years since I attended a gay rodeo, so it was a really special weekend seeing friends and watching the cowboys and cowgirls compete. I can’t wait for it to return next year! Here are more photos from rodeoIMG_0495
