All those that were looking to have a little bit of San Francisco Folsom-style funk in New York City are going to have put away the buttplug and lube, 'cos this year's Folsom Street East Festival has been cancelled. All together now: BOOOO!

Yup, they're using the "construction" excuse now, but that block is becoming very thick with luxury condos and it's right by the high line. I'm thinking Folsom Street East will not return in that location. I went last year and it was a total blast and so different, but the energy was awkward with all the flyover gawkers at the high line. You just know there is being a lot of pressure put on them to discontinue the event in that location permanently.
Having been to the real Folsom Street Fair, I'd say it's no loss. The Fair represents the WORST stereotypes of sex-obsessed gay men, not to mention the fact that all the guys there with their freak flags out (in other words, the naked ones) are totally fug.
ya, whats up with that R2? I like hot men like the next guy, leather, rubber, bear but all the ones showing up at Folsom are just FUGLY.
Like Ongina from RuPauls Drag Race. = Total Dick Wilt.
How dare they take away out right to gang bang in public!
The only goodlooking ones in attendance are the porn stars, and they mostly don't participate--they're just there to advertise their companies and have their pictures taken.
It's mostly a freakfest.
lol r4. Freedom taking, that's what this is!
You younger gays seem to want to let them take all the fun out of being gay.
Damn. I was really looking forward to seeing a bunch of frankfurter-skinned, saggy-tittied fiftysomethings display their baseball-sized nipples and cottage-cheese asses in black leather harnesses while desperately trying to inflate their penile implants in the name of sexual freedom.
Jeez! First Fleet Week and now this.
I wouldn't want people behaving like this in public, gay or straight. It looks awfully needy of attention, and a product of homophobia rather than a reaction to it.
