On my way into the Folsom Europe street fair I made my donation to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
The Sisters collect charitable donations at the gates. I was immediately struck by Schwester Francine’s profile. I asked if I could draw her and her husband, who was keeping her company as she worked the gate. And she agreed and we had a nice chat!
Lots of folx had these t-shirts, which said things like “Spanker>” and “Spankee>” and lots more.
This very good-looking “Slut” was kind enough to let me draw him on my way to The Ballery. He was from Zurich, people come from all over for Folsom Europe. His companion’s shirt said “Daddy”. These were the tame shirts 🙂
I raced over to the stage when I heard it was time for the sash-holders’ photo shoot.
It is not a casual thing, not a beauty contest, to be a title-holder in the Leather Community. It requires learning community history, being of service, and being respected by your peers. Anyone who earns a sash has done the work to know what it means.
Next year I will do a sash-holder feature and sketch as many as I can!
Meanwhile, it is possible for me to make and share these drawings of Europe’s leather family because of the monthly financial support of my Patrons on Patreon.
