Twisted Windows: Winter Gala
December 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Step into a kinky winter wonderland at an event that combines a scintillatingly sensual show with interactive marvels. This gala reception features exquisitely er*tic, sensually subversive, and particularly provocative performance art, including suspension bondage, pole dance, burlesque, and kink-ified seasonal songs, as well as decorated attendee photo areas, interactive painting, winter-themed snacks, ornament creation, and other participatory activities. All proceeds go to compensate artists and to support the Folsom Street 501(c)3 non-profit arts and culture organization.
Tickets: Tickets are pre-sale only and will not be available at the door. We anticipate selling out well in advance, so don’t try to wait until the last minute to get yours! Ticket prices range from $29 to $69 and are available here: https://forbiddentickets.com/events/twisted-windows/60b09fbc30
Location: Folsom Street Community Center, 145 9th St Suite 102, San Francisco
Schedule: December 11th, 2021. Doors open at 7:30pm, event from 8pm – 10:30pm. Performer details coming soon!
Attire: Twisted Windows is an artistic fetish environment, and you are part of that environment. Wear what makes you feel amazing and seize this opportunity for your finery to be fully appreciated! Think blues and whites, formal attire, leather/lace/latex, ice royalty, or winter wonderland adjacent. No effort = no entry. Attendees are required to wear masks at all times, except when actively eating/drinking (we will provide some packaged snacks and single-serve non-alcoholic beverages).

Attendees must also complete a symptom screening and attestation at the door. All attendees must abide by our code of conduct.
