Nobody knows the folsom

events line up better than

Andy wibbels.  His event 

listing @ andymatic.com 

give all the ins and outs

any folsom goer needs,

including information about requirements,

changes and restrictions for this year.

As he says 

Folsom is a Rorschach-

It reflects your sexual identity back at you. You learn what turns you on and what doesn’t. What you once thought was kink and what you now think is vanilla. What you might try, what you’re glad you tried, and what you’d never even consider (well, maybe next year). Who you’re scared to admit you want to be, what you’re scared to admit you want, and what you’re absolutely sure you don’t.


So take a look at this list compiled by the very best.





Summer in SF, as most of you well know, doesn't usually begin until Labor Day, when the rest of the country is saying goodbye to it. Barring days of bad air choked with wildfire smoke, we should be in for another six or eight weeks of warm weather and potential beach days. It's all about the marine layer, and picking days when the temperatures in the city and the deep East Bay even out, keeping the fog offshore.


Lots of homos were out at Marshall Beach last weekend, celebrating the city's first real heatwave of the year. But if you want to soak up some rays in the buff in the coming weeks, you'll want to consult this list of the best LGBT-friendly nude beaches around.


Baker Beach, San Francisco

The north end of Baker Beach is clothing-optional, and is typically a mix of LGBTQ and straight people on busier sunny days. You'll want to access it by the sand ladder along Lincoln Boulevard, and hang a right when you hit the beach. If you walk too far to the left, you will be in family/toddler territory.


Black Sands Beach, Marin Headlands
