The first Up Your Alley Fair started as an AIDS fundraiser in San Francisco’s leather districtin 1985, but it moved to Dore Alley two years later and has remained there to this day.
Let’s enjoy some sights from the Up Your Alley fair!

The crowd was massive, friendly, but bustling. It could take a while to walk from one side of the street to the other.

They had lots of hot dancers on boxes as well as porn stars and exhibitionists showing off their kink in various places.

The entire day throbs with a raw sexual energy as friends and lovers celebrate their uniqueness.

Some of the outfits have a club kid appeal….

A handful of drag queens also attended, wearing their Sunday best.

Some participants invited abuse by dressing up as Donald Trump or signs that said, “humiliate me”

Others just wore sexy harnesses and revealing underwear (much to our delight).

The fair also invites attendees to try their hand at various kink — like ropes, puppy play and flogging — and some of their assistants and experts are seriously sexy.

It’s a good place to hang, whether you’re a veteran kinkster or just curious.

Though it’s important to remember why such LGBTQ and sex-positive events exist.

Though the event is predominantly white, there are plenty of sexy attendees from different races and ethnicities….

Not very different from any other gay event, pride march or bar. A gathering of the Elite, the Fabulous, the Chosen Ones. Don't forget that many, many, out, proud, gay men would never be welcome at such events, we are excluded due to our appearance.
