Live Shots: Relive the kinky joy (and delicious pain) of Folsom Street Fair

This year’s Folsom Street Fair was big and bright and full of friendly people (often in awkward situations for extended conversation).

Honestly, it was a county fair of kink. Complete with all the human barnyard animals you should wish for. I’m so glad this very San Francisco tradition is still as wild and lovely and scary and fabulous as always. —words: Marke B. All photos by Jon Bauer.
