Folsom Street Events is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving the adult San Francisco alternative communities. Through the production of street fairs, Folsom Street Events promotes diversity within the leather/alternative lifestyle, highlighting entertainment, service and vendors. Proceeds from the production of the fairs are distributed to organizations which promote a sense of community, diversity, cooperation, health and human services.
Our mission is to create world-class volunteer driven leather events, providing the adult alternative lifestyle community safe venues for self-expression, emphasizing freedom, fun and frolic, while raising money to benefit San Francisco charities.
I checked it out folks, believe me, what it really is--is the world's largest leather event, an open and very public display of debauchery, porn, sex toys, sexually explicit materials and clothing, spankings, beatings, leathers, whips, chains, and anything and everything having to do with sex. They say it caters to those with an alternative lifestyle but by the looks of the sponsors and reading up on the site, it is apparent it defines alternate lifestayle as being gay, lesbian, and transgendered. Ahh so that's the definition of alternative, I had no idea! Most of their sponsors and advertisers are related to the sex and porn industry.
Don't believe me?

But it's ok see because it's for charity.
So you mean to tell me that those individuals of the so-called alternative lifestyle can't indulge in this in their homes? They can't read the back pages of a porn magazine or go into a porn shop to search for sex toys, clothing, and explicit materials?
No. Of course not, they have to do it in public, rebelling in the face of decency. That's what it's all about, a big fat "screw you" to everyone who believes that a person's sexual tendencies should be something indulged in-in private.
And to make things worse, why is it the radical gay community has to always mock Christianity? In this ad for the fair, they photographed in a re-creation of The Last Supper in leather and a table full of sex toys. Hmm...now since they are so free to mock religion what do you think would happen if they depicted Mohammad in a leather outfit and turban getting a spanking? Or better yet how about Osama Bin Laden in nothing but women's lace panties.
You know damn well what would happen. You think the radical Islamic world hates us now?
So you see folks, it's easy to pick on Christians because they're not likely to pick back. Everyone picks on the Christians. Oh sure the Christian community might complain a bit all but that's about it. They're not likely to behead anyone or rally in the streets of San Francisco blocking traffic and causing a ruckus for law enforcement. Nope, they'll just go on about their business.
Now if it were Muslims? There'd be hell to pay. CAIR would be calling for someone's head, there would be protests and accusations of hate crimes for depicting Mohammad or anyone of the Muslim faith in such a degrading manner.
This whole thing stinks, I can't believe that a city could back such an event. I don't care if it is for charity, this kind of event has NO business being backed by a government institution and using government resources (who do you think will be policing the event?)
The 64-page pornfest program has a statement from the corrupted Mayor Gavin Newsom:
"To all organizers and attendees of the Folsom Street Fair, their families, friends, colleagues and visitors from home and around the world, have a great day and enjoy this wonderful and exciting event."
Ok let me get this straight...
The City of San Francisco supported by Code Pink and other radical groups rallied in an attempt to prevent the Blue Angels from performing in the airspace over San Francisco.
The San Francisco Film Commission's director Stephanie Coyote refused, absolutely REFUSED to allow the US Marine Corp to film a recruiting commercial on the Golden Gate Bridge or the streets of San Francisco on 9/11 until she eventually releted to pressure and allowed the Marine Corp to film footage of the city BUT did not allow Marines to be captured on film during the process.
the City allows a public gay porn/spank/leather fest?
How in hell did this ever become a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity?
How in hell did the people of San Francisco go for this?
What about this thing called public decency?
The people of San Francisco who live there who haven't put a stop to this and I suppose it shouldn't surprise me. Everywhere you turn in that city, it's being run by the radicals and everyone is afraid of them, even Newsom. When are the people of San Francisco going to take back their city and say that no ONE particular group owns that city? When are the people of San Francisco going to stand up to the "people of alternative lifestyle" and tell them that just because they choose a partner of the same sex, or enjoy a kinky lifestyle, that they have no right to take over that city. Because as we all know, the population of San Francisco is not made up solely of people who enjoy the so-called alternative lifestyle, it's made up of all kinds of people and all those other people have a right to live in a city they can be proud of where decency is still considered a good thing.
