25th Anniversary of the Folsom Street Fair

Dore Alley

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Folsom Street Fair, the world’s largest leather/fetish event which goes beyond the distinctions of gender and sexual orientation. This exhibit will focus on the Up Your Alley Fair (aka Dore Alley, where the event takes place). Although a younger offshoot of the Folsom Street Fair, Up Your Alley attracts over 12,000 local leatherfolk and few tourists, it is considered a less commercial and very authentic San Francisco event. Exhibition: September 1 through October 15, 2008, Main Library, Third Floor, James C. Hormel Gay and Lesbian Center, 100 Larkin Street (at Grove)
