District Launch Party Postponed

Launch Party

Originally planned to coincide with the second anniversary of the Cultural District on May 9, 2020, the big event at Folsom Street Foundry has been postponed, for the obvious reason.

However, once the current crisis is over, we plan to properly celebrate the world’s first ever official LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District!

The event will be free, and we’ll be offering appetizers from local restaurants. There will be a cash bar, but soda will be free.

Other attractions:

  • A Makers Market for local artists and vendors
  • Demos
  • Bootblack
  • Spankings!
  • Performances
  • Leather Fashion Show
  • Live band / DJ / Dance
  • Introduction to the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District

ASL interpretation will be provided if requested 10 days in advance.

This will be both a party and a showcase for the artists, artisans, performers and businesses of the District.  Local artists and vendors interesting in have a free table to display and sell their creations should contact info@SFLCD.org now!
