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!
As announced on their website:
"It is with sadness that the Producers and Board of Directors of Folsom Street East have to announce that the 17th annual Folsom Street East Street Festival this June is going to be cancelled. Though we continue to receive support for this community-building and fundraising event from Community Board 4 and our neighbors on the block (including our producing partner The Eagle NYC), the ever-growing construction on the north side of 28th street has made it impossible for us to successfully and safely hold our annual street festival. Thank you for the years of support from our attendees, sponsors, partners, exhibitors, vendors, performers and volunteers; we are sad that we will not be able to celebrate Pride with you at our fetish-friendly event this year."
Well, hopefully this will not be the end of Folsom for New York and that next year they will be back, kinkier and hornier than ever! You know what they say - you can't keep a a HORNY HOMO down!
