SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
The Folsom Street Fair is California’s 3rd largest festival and regularly attracts as many as 400,000 people on any given day. The BDSM and leather holiday –which celebrated its 29th year this past weekend — attracted exhibitionists and gawkers in droves. Photos by Gil Riego Jr. for SF Weekly. Other photos from link, which also serves as the official website for the festival. Note that the Fair raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities!
While the festival tries to remain un-political, there is no hiding that this is an election year!
