Folsom Street Fair 2016

The word for the day at the Folsom Street Fair was “shade”.  Not the kind you throw, but as in get out of the direct sun.  It was a scorcher out there.  Even with the temps hovering in the upper 80’s to low 90’s, kinksters of all types came to celebrate and hang out with friends.

Organizers said more than 300,000 leather aficionados made it to the 33rd annual leather-loving, BDSM-loud-and-proud fair. Most stripped off their street clothes as soon as they passed through the entrance gates. Folsom is the place where everyone’s free to be who they want to be. Its a celebration of all things sexual.  The fair annually draws visitors from around the world, and is the third-largest street event in California, after the Tournament of Roses Parade and the San Francisco Pride parade. Each year, net proceeds from Folsom Street Fair, including gate donations and beverage sales, are given to qualified local charities (“beneficiaries”). These include charities working in public health, human services, and the arts, as well as beverage partners. The event regularly generates over $300,000 annually for charity.

Here is a link to this year’s batch of photos from Folsom.  If you were there, take a look and if you missed it, take a look to see some of the sexiness and craziness that is the Folsom Street Fair. If you want to keep up with what’s happening in the leather community here a couple of great resources, The Leather Journal and if you are on Facebook, join Race’s Bar.

Folsom Street Fair – 2011

Grey skies and rain couldn’t keep the hot men away or from showing off at the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco.  Actually, the rain only lasted about an hour and then the sun came out for a great afternoon of hanging out with friends and checking out all the hot men in leather.  To see more photos from the 2011 Folsom Street Fair, click here.
