Leather season is hard upon us -- and a special Folsom Pride party adds to the festivities

Mr. San Francisco Leather, Andy Cross, won the International Mr. Leather competition in Chicago last month

"We're now competing with Treasure Island Music Festival for acts for Folsom," Demetri said. "We want to grow into more than the circuit-y vibe, and it's gotten to the point where the thought of playing for 400,000 fetish fans sounds great to a lot of up-and-coming acts." (Demetri couldn't share this year's Folsom co-headliners yet, but could spill that Light Asylum, Icky Blossoms, Heloise and the Savoir Faire, and Mark Moore from legendary UK pop-house outfit S'Express would be there. And Up Your Alley will feature mysterious outfit Luther's deep techno and David Harness's soulful house.) "It's an adjustment for some of our crowd, but most people have welcomed it. Why have the same thing all the time? I love mixing it up, and hear these amazing stories about vanilla straight couples who came for the music bonding with queer piss fetishists and BDSM folks over the whole experience. It's really one of those only in San Francisco things."

Still more surprise expansion: Folsom's now hosting its own concerts, leaping into the game with a Pride pre-party at Public Works, with electro Welsh dreamboat Bright Light Bright Light and Slow Knights, the latest project from Scissor Sisters' Del Marquis.

"It's already shaping up to be a crazy party," Demetri said. "Who knows what's going to happen? Maybe wear something stain resistant."

Folsom Events Presents: Bright Light Bright Light, Slow Knights, Honey Soundsystem Thursday, June 27, 9pm, $25. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF. www.publicsf.com, Facebook invite

PS I have to get in an extra special sloppy kiss here for my own Leather Dad, Ray Tilton, the sweetest ever, on his 50th birthday. Love you, Daddy Ray!

Why are the nudist on Castro street treated as second class citizens who ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE NUDE , but the "chosen" ones at the Folsom Street fair are exempt from this law? It's textbook segregation, and it's unconstitutional !
