PHOTOS: Folsom Street Fair Defies Mother Nature by Heating up San Francisco

San Francisco‘s Folsom Street Fair was threatened by rain and overcast skies this year, but nothing could cool off one of the world’s sexiest public gathering, where leather boys and girls and fetishists of all stripes—plus legions of fans from around the world—were up to their annual hijinks.

More than 400,000 people crowded the 12-block radius all Sunday afternoon. We assigned the incomparable Kevin Kauer to cover all the highlights in pictures. Enjoy, and stay tuned for more Folsom party slideshows!

    Why is it that only 25% of these photos of Folsom pictured men/women wearing leather or engaged in some sort of bdsm activity? Folsom is supposed o celebrate all things non mainstream and “vanilla” but instead, you have only shown the everyday gay prettyboys. Does no one on your staff understand what the spirit of Leather than started the Folsom street events is about? If not i would be happy to lend gaycities a hand on what real leathermen and women are all about!

    I do consider all of the ideas you have introduced on your post.
    They’re very convincing and will certainly work.
    Still, the posts are very quick for novices.
    May just you please extend them a bit from next time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand a lot about this, such as you
    wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you simply could do with
    a few p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, but other than that,
    that is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    great blog like this one nowadays.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a
    doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this during my search for something relating to this.

    Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different topic
    but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Wonderful
    choice of colors!


    Post writing is also a fun, if you be familiar with then you can write otherwise it is
    difficult to write.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be
    running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet
    browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem
    resolved soon. Thanks
