FOLSOM STREET EAST is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization in New York City, producing fundraising events and serving the leather/fetish/kink community, the LGBT community and New York City at large.
Our biggest annual event is the Folsom Street East street festival, the largest outdoor fetish street festival on the eastern coast, which brings thousands of sexy kinksters out onto the streets of New York City on a summer afternoon to celebrate sexual diversity and expression.
With your support, Folsom Street East has donated more than $250,000 since the first street fair in 1997 to local community organizations, including our 2012 and 2013 beneficiaries:
- THE CENTER: THE LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER
- THE NYC GAY & LESBIAN ANTI-VIOLENCE PROJECT (AVP)
- THE NATIONAL COALITION FOR SEXUAL FREEDOM (NCSF)
- HOUSING WORKS
