Folsom Street East XII - June 22nd

The 12th annual installment of Folsom Street East takes place on June 22nd in West Chelsea on W.28th Street.
Folsom Street East is New York’s premiere s/m-leather-fetish themed street festival. Produced by Gay Male S/M Activists (GMSMA), Folsom Street East is the largest outdoor event of its kind on the East Coast attracting nearly 10,000 visitors.

Performances already schedule this year will feature Bob Mould, Sylvia Tosun, Fredrick Ford, Kissy Kamikaze, Trai La Trash, The Imperial Court of New York, Noa Tylo and Supa Nova. Porn producer extraordinaire Chi Chi LaRue will serve as the event’s emcee.

The street will once again be lined with some 50 community groups and vendors that appeal to the LGBT and the kink communities and mobs of leatherclad musclehunks. A one-stop shop for leather gear, porn, and toys. And no throw pillow, magic mops, or tube socks – promise!

Proceeds benefit he LGBT Community Center, the NYC Gay & Lesbian Anti-Violence Project (AVP), the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) and GMSMA. Admission $10 at the gate.
Congrats to the organizers for snagging Bob Mould for this year's fair. With the construction of luxury condos getting underway on W.28th, look for this year's fair to be an even crazier crush of menz. Who buys a "luxury condo" in between the Eagle and Scores, the biggest titty bar in town?
