this used to a be a small, local event but then greed raised its ugly head. now every year a few private hands use public space for private money and turn all of san francisco into a carnal carnival. personally i'm sick of the "bridge and tunnel" crowd with thier leather harnesses and wips invading our city. let's face it: this type of event leads to hated and violence against gays. as a gay man who survived aids, i say it's time to stop giving this fair public space!
