PHOTOS: Berlin’s Fetish Community Takes To The Streets For Folsom Europe

Euro fetish lovers were out in force last Saturday for the 9th annual Folsom Europe, held in Berlin‘s Schoeneberg neighborhood, the traditional center of the city’s kink scene.

From prison garb and SWAT gear to lederhosen and fox suits, no look went unrepresented at the fantastic street fair. Many a cheek shone through many an assless chap. There was even a special play area set up for all the numerous human dogs.

Patterned after San Francisco’s famous Folsom Street Fair, Folsom Europe has become the preferred open-air festival—not just for the thousands in Berlin’s uniform-loving community, but for like-minded gents (and even some ladies) from across the country and beyond.

This year, Folsom Europe encompassed a full week of events around the German capital, from a raucous performance by Australian fetish rocker Loka Nunda to the no holds-barred attitude at the official Pig bash. As he has done for many years, Berlin’s gay mayor Klaus Wowereit welcomed the fête: “The leather and fetish scene is meeting here for the ninth time to party together, communicate with kindred spirits, raise money for charity and break down prejudices,” His Honor explained.

      @AndrewIB: Could you be any more of a total f*cking close minded idiot?

      My heart sinks at those who cannot appreciate or even at the very least value the differences that make us individuals.

      Like we should adopt some suburban, GOP, whitewashed, sanitized, persona in hopes the world will accept us.

      Man are you f*cking clueless – we are moving forward regardless of what you think might hold us back.
