Folsom Street Fair Unveils 2015 Poster

Folsom Street Fair unveiled its always hotly-awaited poster today. Also revealed today is the possibly less blog-safe poster for the Dore Alley Fair. Meanwhile Porno Pete is slavering over a much more imminent bit of sexytime mantasticness.

  • Steverino

    Porno Pete slavering, or slave ring?

    • clay

      his imagination seems to be in chains.

  • Dennis

    We’re not “gay”, just gay.
    I don’t even know what a “gay” man would be.

    • lymis

      That would be someone who doesn’t invite Porno Pete to their parties.

    • Steverino

      Perhaps a heterosexual man who under certain circumstances (e.g., in prison) has sex with other men? Since morons like PP think being gay is reducible to sexual acts, then such a man would qualify as being gay in his pea brain. That is the only situation in which such a man could be considered “gay.”

    • madknits

      Well, remember it’s coming from someone who’s “Christian”.

      • Soren456


  • lymis

    Well, in fairness, Chicago gay men engage in the most heinous perversions imaginable on most weekends. Part of the city’s enduring charm. We just get out of towners for IML.

    • JW Swift

      Did it just get warm in here, or is that just me…?

    • Rambie

      Such as? 😉

    • William

      Pictures please! We don’t get much of the perversion around here.

  • Phil

    And what does Porno Pete do on Memorial Day to honor our nation’s fallen? Engage in voyeurism by going incognito to watch and film the most heinous perversions imaginable.

    • shellback

      +1000 upvotes and a big hug for good measure.

    • TommyTune

      Like Gladys Kravitz, he just can’t help himself.

    • Sucks spilled semen out of cracks in the linoleum?

      • OrliJoe in Fla

        Nah, I’m betting he wacks off in corner, like the pervert he is.

      • lymis

        Generally, it’s mostly carpeted.

        • Then he’ll have to suck extra hard to get through the carpeting and padding.

    • Paula

      Poor Petey, nobody ever ask him to go to the fair. He has to go stag, every time.😢😢😢😢😢

  • Todd20036

    Porno, you really hate it that soon all 50 states have to recognize our marriages.

    We aren’t stopping there. The next fight is to add the 4 words.

    Sucks to be you.

  • BostonDotTom

    In a world where some priests never face consequences for harming children, rape is a weapon of choice for military forces in numerous countries, children are cast out by their families for being different, and millions of people die of easily preventable diseases because of poverty and someone else’s greed – men in leather outfits are “the most heinous perversions imaginable”. I know this is old hat for Pete here, but will someone please finally teach this man what it means to “have some perspective”?

    • KCMC

      perspective usually absent in delusional disorders.

    • TommyTune

      “Perspective” isn’t as profitable as delusion.

    • 2karmanot

      Poor o’le Petie. After he dies he will end up outside of Chicago at a Hell Fire run.

      • Bad Tom

        And won’t be let in.

    • Octavio

      At least teach him what riding crops are really for.

      • Paula

        Octavio, I’m afraid one of you gentlemen will have to do that.
        I would whip him with it until there was no skin left on his backside. That is the dark side of myself that troubles me.

        • RoFaWh

          Don’t be troubled.

          I like to think of myself as a mild mannered, cultured man, but recently found myself guffawing at a dude who’d signed up for edging and discovered that he’d signed up for way more than he’d bargained on.

          I am unrepentant, untroubled, and unworried.

          • Bad Tom

            Yes. DO NOT go to an event like IML, and sign up for something that you do not completely understand.

      • RoFaWh

        Octavio, that might be a very bad idea. Just consider this: LaBarbera is likely to find himself in a state of intense arousal after a while and in the usual way get relief by spraying semen all over the place.

        Only if your play space has an easily cleaned floor is your proposal feasible.

        • Octavio

          Our romper room is easily hosed down. But you’re right. After all, who would want to touch him. Upon reflection, pardon me while I go lose my lunch. 🙂

          • Paula

            Be sure to wear rubber gloves and a respirator of some sort.

          • RKitty01

            body condom

        • lymis

          Why did I suddenly get an image from the Aliens movie of sticky fluid dissolving its way through multiple layers of flooring?

          • Menergy

            I used to hear that stuff in those movies referred to as “space jizz”. 😆

    • JJS_prime

      Let’s make that “most priests never face consequences…”

    • pablo

      As soon as I read “In a world…” I heard the rest of your post in that movie trailer guy’s voice.

  • loosevowels

    no fatty stereotype ;(

  • Tom G

    Leave it to Peter Labarbera to nut over this poster before I do.

  • disqus_oCvsL5SBJH

    porno Pete has been beating off just thinking about beating off to this poster while thinking about beating off after his visit to Folsom

    • BlueberriesForMe

      How many copies of the poster do you think he ordered? Thanks for supporting Folsom again, Porno.

  • Randy Ellicott

    Its odd how he gets all pissed off about this, he has to be one of the few people who have gone to every fair since it started…. You know for Jeebus….

  • barracks9

    Shorter Petey: To Fap the Unfappable Fap.

    • StSean

      to shoot.. the unshootable load!

      • Octavio

        to go where no real man has gone before

    • Rambie

      I’ve never been to Folsom, maybe I should go and pose for Pete. LOL

    • lymis

      To try…. when your arms are too weary…

  • BlueberriesForMe

    Hey Porno, are you going to hold your own “protest” again soon outside the HRC office? Will you have more than 5000+ people with you? Be sure to check with your once-upon-a-time BFF Brownshirt for helpful hints.

  • Ray Butlers

    The most heinous perversions imaginable? Let’s hope so!

    • Kate

      It sounds like he just has a poor imagination.

  • Octavio

    “. . . where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars . . .” Ah, yes. I love the smell of tanned leather in the morning. 🙂

  • delk

    She’s just sad the last train to Naperville is at 12:40 am so she has to leave before the good stuff happens.

  • penpal

    Pete better start stocking up more lube. All that jerking off is bound to give him hand burns.

  • Boy Elvis

    The most heinous perversion imaginable! That’s hardcore porn marquee gold right there! I bet Pete just tipped his hand about his side job…

    • lymis

      Um… ick.

  • JoeNCA

    Pete needs a serious rationing of scare quotes.

  • Gigi

    “…the most heinous precarious imagine able… AND I’LL BE THERE TO FILM IT ALL!!!!!”

  • JalapeñoBusiness

    If they could just have photoshoped Pete, looking around the corner of the street car, with a camera, Gladys Kravits style. Well, that would have been perfect.

    • William

      “Abner, they’re at it again! Get the garden hose!!”

      • lymis

        “I can’t, Gladys. The neighbor boys borrowed it. Some sort of party they said they were planning.”

  • TomF.

    I have to see what my spell checker does with “sexytime mantasticness”. Yep…the wavy red underline, just as I suspected!

    • Bad Tom

      Just press Add To Dictionary.

  • Octavio

    The Folsom poster has me all misty-eyed. If I can convince El Squeeze to accompany me I might just drag us to SF for five or six days beginning on 9/26. My old leather pants, vest and jacket still fit — albeit a bit loose in the waist and shoulders nowadays. Hmmm . . . I’ll need new boots. Then there’s a couple of red jock straps I’ll have to pick up. Some clean bandanas in various colors . . . a new nipple ring . . . damn, it’s going to be expensive!

    • Tor

      Stompers Boots, Mr. S.

    • John P.

      Please send pics!

    • JalapeñoBusiness

      You could just start a company that does does Bus Tours for aging Leather Daddies. Include all of that in the welcome package.

      • Octavio

        Someone already does that. I lived in SF during my formative years (16 to 29 with two years off for Viet Nam). Most of my generation was wiped out by the mid 90s. It’s hard just driving through the city to get on the bridge and continue up the coast. Visiting it for several days has never seemed attractive. But the idea of loitering at the street fair . . . that might be nice.

    • Rambie

      I’ve never been, but considering it this year, maybe we’ll bump into each other. 😉

      • Octavio

        I’m easy to locate at leather functions. All my stuff is oxblood instead of black. 🙂

        • Rambie

          LOL. Wonder if leather color denotes anything like the old hanky code. If so I’ll have to be careful with my red-black harness. 😉

  • JoyZeeBoy

    And I’ll bet ANYTHING that his fevered imagination has imagined it ALL! Often.

  • And every year, Porno Pete finds himself in attendance at one of these festivals of perversion, armed with a camera and a case of wet-naps.

    • Homo Erectus

      Would someone please fuck him already?

  • And Pete and his dildo spend all weekend dreaming about them…

  • TampaDink

    Pete wouldn’t miss attending MAL unless he were locked up in a Canadian jail….again.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Awww someone wants to be ball gagged.

    • Bad Tom

      Someone needs to be ball gagged.

  • carswell

    “the most heinous perversions imaginable”

    And you can bet Porno Pete’s imagination is running wild!

    • John P.

      I believe he usually attends.,, you know, for ‘research’!

  • JW Swift

    Ah, so ANY activity that takes place over the Memorial Day Weekend absolutely MUST honor our nation’s fallen, or suffer the wrath of Porno Pete. Got it.

    • PeterC

      I do not go to a church anymore; so am also to be honored as one of this nation’s “fallen”? I hope so.

  • rextrek1

    Im sure pete has it firmly placed on his calendar – circled with lube…..

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    Huh, I wasn’t aware that you are required to observe a holiday, if you do, the same as others. I also wasn’t aware that you weren’t allowed to do certain things during certain weekends because a holiday happens to be that weekend.

    I find it more hilarious that christians honor the death of a jew by eating ham.

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    Some of those gay men probably served or are serving in the military. If we are going to fine tune a parade, then, let’s keep out the adulterers, fornicators, liars, cheaters, and those wearing mixed fabrics. Oh, wait. No one would be there. Whether Peter approves or disapproves of certain parts of the parade, everybody, in the parade, goes to show their respect to the military.

    • Bad Tom

      Leather, on leather, plus leather is not mixing fabrics.
      Just sayin’

  • Clive Johnson

    There really needs to be a couple of roving video and camera people on the watch for Pete ‘I’m tenting at Folsom’ LaBarbera. If he shows up, they should pay special attention to the _entirety_ of his reactions and post the results online, of course.

    • lymis

      At least one year, IML had pictures of him plastered around with a request from the organizers to notify anyone on staff if they even saw him in the building.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    meh. Not the best Folsom poster ever.

  • DonnaLee

    They’re not ‘gay’ men they’re GAY men Peter!!

  • cminca

    And every year Porno Pete goes to “report” on it.

  • William

    If Pete is weary of watching the perversion, he should attend one of the many Memorial Day mattress sales.

  • dcurlee

    Bet he has booked his ticket. Now pete wipe your chin your drooling

  • Joseph Miceli

    Poor Pete. No one asked her to the prom, did they?

  • Jeffrey Samuels

    “the most heinous perversions imaginable”? What? Did they vote republican?

  • RKitty01

    Clang clang clang went the trolley…

  • The fade is strong in this one.

  • Homo Erectus

    Is that Rick Santorum in the middle?

  • Lawerence Collins

    I think this sums it up.

  • Gordon.

    What’s so heinous about dressing up in a costume, and standing around in a bar, sipping cocktails ?

  • GThomas

    As a photographer, I’m sick to death of seeing corporate sponsorship logos on posters. Is this uglification trend start in the 90s? Posters can be such beautiful pieces of pop art…except for all the logos mucking them up.

  • agcons

    LaBabs is, as always, far too interested in such things for a “straight” man.

  • Aikane Kai

    Thankfully, there are men who go to both of these events who are actually hot, unlike the stereotypes depicted in these posters.

  • customartist

    No mention of the oh-so-wholesome hetero genital-flashing at Mardi Gras

  • Jamie T

    Mario Diaz…mmm
