Zombie: Folsom Street Fair, SF Report (WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC PICS!)
Zombietime.com ^ | 10/4/07 | Zombie

Posted on 10/04/2007 9:29:51 PM PDT by TFFKAMM

Every year in San Francisco there's a free outdoor "fetish" event called the Folsom Street Fair at which hundreds of thousands of mostly gay men stroll around the city streets in leather or rubber fetish outfits.

This year, a major controversy surrounding the fair was ignited by its official poster, which was a parody of the Da Vinci's The Last Supper featuring sex toys and fetish gear, instead of the standard biblical scene. Christian groups and some conservatives found the poster offensive.

The controversy then spread when critics discovered that Miller Beer, a mainstream corporation, was the fair's main sponsor. Conservative groups began to call for a boycott of Miller products if the beverage company did not withdraw its sponsorship.

The fracas expanded when images of young children attending the 2005 Folsom Street Fair -- illustrations for an online magazine article -- began circulating in the blogosphere...

Click here for Zombie's photographic report of this event.

WARNING: These pictures are very graphic and are extremely work- and family-unfriendly. The link to Zombie's photographic report is not posted here to titillate or sensationalize -- the pics speak for themselves, and reveal an almost unimaginable level of public depravity, all sponsored by major corporations and underwritten by City taxes. Follow the above link at your own risk!

(Moderators: If this posting is really FR-inappropriate, feel free to delete it. I've posted it since, in the wake of the Miller Beer controversy, I want to keep the FR community apprised of just how bad Folsom is.)

I normally look at zombies picture coverage of protests and the like, but I think I’ll pass on this one.

Can't say that I blame you. I'm probably more culturally avant than 99% of Freeperdom -- hell, I'm an ex-hardcore-punk rocker, among many other things -- but those pics were truly revolting. A little naughtiness, or even gay stuff, is one thing -- the Sodom-and-Gomorrah scenes depicted in that photo essay are definitely another.

As I said above -- if you click on the link, you're on your own.

Any pretense of tolerance I had just went out the window. I guess I’m glad people can finally understand the level of depravity involved. I don’t know what else to say...

Speechless.......I thought it was illegal, nevermind, this is SF. Where they outlaw the military and get all butt-hurt over the Blue Angels.

No, not shock -- and I will not throw stones.

But I am literally astounded that anyone would do that *in public*.

NO cheers, unfortunately.

Full Disclosure:

Kyrie eleison.

This caption says it all...

Unsurprisingly, the hepatitis booth was among the most popular at the entire event.

Zombie does a fantastic job of chronicling moonbat events in San Franfreaksco, and I visit his site regularly to see if there is anything new. I clicked on this set and looked at a few pictures, got disgusted and stopped. I am far from being a prude, but it was just too much. And, people reportedly took their little kids to the fair!

From the author:

“I am also not a Christian, and I am pretty much completely non-religious. Yet by doing this report, I know full well that I’ll be handing ideological ammunition to the anti-homosexual forces, and a propaganda coup to the Christians who were laughed at for claiming the event featured open-air sex.”

No longer parody (and it probably never was):

I like the pic that wrote itself. It’s sad that this is the USA i’m looking at.

Miller is owned by www.sabmiller.com

They pretend that one of their corporate priorities is to:

Contribute to the reduction of HIV/Aids within our sphere of influence

http://www.sabmiller.com/sabmiller.com/en_gb/Our+responsibility/Our+priorities/HIV+Aids/

“The interventions are divided into two areas. First, existing infections are managed through voluntary counselling and testing (VCT), early diagnosis and managed healthcare, which includes free anti-retroviral treatment for employees and their direct dependents. Second, we aim to reduce and prevent new infections through effective education programmes which incorporate a behavioural change component.”

I guess the Folsom Street Fair was one of these “effective education programmes” to reduce AIDS/HIV.
