“Ein bisserl Leder braucht a jeder” (everyone needs a bit of leather)! The slogan of the blond Bräurosl on the Gay Sunday organized by the Munich Löwen Club in September is not only valid for the Oktoberfest. It’s biggest LGBT event this year takes place on September 22 in the Bräurosl tent. One week before the event, the international fetish scene will meet at Folsom Europe in Berlin. Between 11 and 15 September, in addition to the actual street festival on Saturday and lots of parties, visitors can expect a gay bus tour, a leather classic concert and a ride on the fetish boat. And if that’s not enough for you, you can visit the original Folsom in San Francisco on the last weekend of September. The Folsom Street Fair is the world’s biggest fetish event and attracts 250,000 visitors from near and far every year. After the traditional Magnitude Party no longer takes place, you can let off steam at the Full Fetish Party organized by Recon.
