Watch: New Documentary ‘Folsom Forever’ Chronicles History of the Iconic Folsom Street Fair
Breaking Glass will be releasing Folsom Forever on DVD and VOD June 9, 2015. Folsom Forever is the story of how a kinky rebellious street festival captured the heart of San Francisco. This new documentary by Mike Skiff (Kink Crusaders) bares the social, political, charitable and cultural implications of the world’s most notorious bacchanal.
In 1984, a scrappy little neighborhood in San Francisco – home to many low-income tenants and the heart of the gay male leather scene – faced destruction from the bulldozers of redevelopment and the AIDS crisis. The Folsom Street Fair was started to call attention to gentrification and raise money for AIDS charities. Folsom Forever tells the story of how this small street fair grew into the biggest outdoor kink and fetish event in the world, and managed to do a lot of good along the way.
The documentary played at the Austin LGBT Film Festival, FilmOut San Diego, Inside Out Toronto, and Seattle LGBT Film Festival.
