Sunday Streets Returns to SOMA

The “Sunday Streets” phenomenon returns to Folsom Street on Sunday, August 18, 2019, from 11 am to 4 pm, creating 1.3 miles of temporary open space — from Essex to 10th Street — for the community to enjoy.

Once again, the Leather Community will take over a portion of the street — probably between 8th and 10th Streets — to introduce the community to our organizations and activities, and to enjoy a car-free afternoon with our neighbors.

Both the San Francisco Bay Area Leather Alliance and the Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District are planning to participate, and other local organizations of all kinds are also welcome to join in:  visit to sign up (their deadline is July 27.)  All kinds of exhibitors are welcome:  information booths, physical activity, arts and crafts, art installations, music/dance/cultural performance, food sampling, voter education/political campaigning, or other creative interactivity with the public.

An important part of the festivities will be the Victory Party for the new 2020 Mr. San Francisco Leather and San Francisco Bootblack, who will be selected at the contests on the previous evening.  (Info and tickets at

Please “save the day” for this. August 18, 2019, from 11 am to 4 pm .  And contact to discuss how you OR your organization can be part of the fun.
