Finally the return of the Folsom Street fairs in SFC. If you haven’t been to one ,you should go. It’s packed with all kinds of homo smut lewdness and debauchery. Leather Bears really know how to party and they party HARD! Those with heart conditions are advised not to attend without checking with your physician first.

Funny how crowds of gay men have become more masculine over the years. Really, you could mistake them for bikers or Proud Boys. So many more gay/bi guys have come out now, instead of marrying a woman and cruising restrooms and parks on the sly.
If it was 1978 they'd be skinny, fey men with mustaches.

It’s the hyper-masculine crowd. Really become popular when Bear magazine started publishing raw homo smut back in the 1980’s. It was to counteract the pretty boy limp wrist gay stereotypes of the previous decades. Straights up to that time thought ALL gay men were effeminate limp wrist little faggots.

I happily predict that events such as these will soon become a relic and go the way of typewriters and pay phones, as gays realize they no longer need to eroticize and fetishize EVERYTHING under the sun and begin to lead normal lives.

It will go away.
So many Eldergays were traumatized by being gay and then having to deal with the AIDS crisis that they internalized their self-hatred and decided that "well, if I'm going to be a freak, I might as well look and act like one."
And there was also a sense of saying "fuck you" to the greater society by pissing in each others mouths and wearing leather harnesses and whatnot.
People our age find this all more than a bit bizarre because we've grown up without all those hang-ups and don't feel the need to act out like that.
What's more, we don't really know anyone who feels that way.
There's a reason why no one in those photos appears to be under the age of 50.

20 years ago, the US version of Queer As Folk had a storyline about how Brian, the good looking slutty one, was all upset about his friends wanting to get married and buy a house because that "wasn't what gay people did"--they were outlaws who had wild sex and never settled down and hated heteros because heteros clearly hated them and all that.
The writers made it very clear that this was because Brian was damaged and self-hating and felt he was unworthy of love and all that. (And eventually came around and proposed to his twink)
And here we are, 20 years later, having the same arguments for the same reasons.

r83, listen to how sick and twisted you sound.
