The LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District was pleased and proud to be part of the 2022 Folsom Street Fair.
We send our thanks to the tireless volunteers who staffed the booth, including Bob Brown, Tessa Antonia Delsener, Richard Dupler, Norm Lynde, JConr B. Ortega, Sumiko Saulson, and Stan Wong.
Our booth also hosted folks from the Bearrison Street Fair, the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District, ELSE, and BABKA (the Bay Area Bi/Pan Kinky Alliance).
At the booth, we spoke to hundreds of guests about the Cultural District, signed up more than 50 folks for our mailing list, showed off items from our new Merchandise Store, gave out stacks and stacks of informational materials, (including our popular postcards), and, of course, extended our invitation to everyone to join us for LeatherWalk 2022 on October 15.
Our warmest thanks and heartiest congratulations go out to Folsom Street, who produced a magnificent event. The return of the full-strength Folsom Street Fair experience had been long awaited and keenly anticipated by our entire community, and the reality did NOT disappoint.

Special mention to everyone involved in the vaccination efforts, both leading up to and actually at the Street Fair; this all-out effort is helping assure that we can enjoy our kinkiness as safely and responsibly as possible.
And kudos also to all the attendees, both locals and visitors, who showed respect, positivity, and common sense, assuring that the event went not just smoothly and safely, but joyfully. We are exhausted, but proud, happy, and inspired!
See you at LeatherWalk next month!
