DEBRIEF: Folsom Street's MEGAHOOD21

It's hard to describe the excitement I felt walking my way to 8th Street yesterday. Pieces of my outfit came together — gloves on, coat off, hands cuffed, belt strapped — as I made moved closer and closer to the fair. I knew I was fast approaching when I saw a person wearing a harness riding a lime scooter on Market Street. As I turned the corner, I was immediately welcomed by a flurry of friendly faces, astounding outfits, leather people (my people) greeting me with compliments, donation buckets, requests to take photos together. Shouts of "Happy Folsom" ringed in my ears as I witnessed beautiful scenes of people reuniting and rejoicing. 

The day went by in a flurry, and I just felt so happy to be part of the action and contribute in some way to the connection I saw unfolding before my eyes. From meeting Bloom members at Wicked Grounds to seeing friends perform at the Bondage and BDSM Demo stages to supporting our community vendors with my new fuzzy rainbow tail and titty earrings, it was certainly a time to remember. Huge thanks to our friends at Folsom Street* for organizing an amazing MEGAHOOD21 — filled with community, laughter, and just the right amount of bruises!
