First Time: Leather Pride Flags on
SF Lampposts for Folsom Street Fair

The annual S/M and leather street party on Folsom Street marks its 25th year of giving sexual fetishists what they want with this year's event, happening more than a month away on September 28.

And maybe for the first time, city lampposts along a several-block area of Market Street, are festooned with the black & blue striped, with a red-heart, leather pride flags, blowing in the wind. They're spanking new and not faded, like the rainbow flags that adorn the street poles for pride events in June.

I asked Alex Randolph, Mayor Gavin Newsom's gay liaison, about the flags and this was his response:

As far as I was able to find out today this is the first year that Folsom
Street Fair has put up the lampposts. Hope this helps.
