The World's Kinkiest Event, San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair Returns

Villian Theater

On Sunday, Folsom made a triumphant return with MEGAHOOD 2021, after last year’s annual celebration of BDSM and leather subculture became a COVID casualty. Despite the enormity of the leather-loving crowd, the Folsom organizers encouraged this year’s attendees to “stay safe, get your shots, wash your hands, mask up and stay weird!” Security checked everyone for vaccination cards, and there were hand-washing and sanitizer stations throughout the area. Capping San Francisco’s Leather Pride Week, Folsom is a celebration of sexuality and welcomes approximately 400,000 people from all walks of life every year, although 2021’s numbers are expected to be much lower for obvious reasons.
