The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence As soon as Once more Produce SF’s Furriest Road Truthful

Whereas the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are well-known for Easter within the Park and its long-running Hunky Jesus and Cunning Mary contests, the world’s most irreverent nuns additionally produce one other pageant later within the 12 months: the Bearrison Road Truthful.

Solely three weeks after the internationally acknowledged Folsom Road Truthful closes off half of Western SoMa for a quarter-million kinksters to roam round, Bearrison—a portmanteau of Harrison Road and a time period for large, furry homosexual males—is aimed largely at body-positive and BDSM-friendly locals, whether or not they be LGBTQ+ or in any other case. The Sisters, sometimes stationed on the gates to a lot of San Francisco’s large-scale outside events, co-produce it with Bears of San Francisco.

“Expertise a circus-like day of hirsute (and hirsute-optional!) merriment for all our bodies, all shapes, all sizes, and importantly — all identities,” the organizers stated in a launch.

This 12 months’s theme, “Below the Huge Tops,” guarantees a carnivalesque vibe with loads of DJs, dancing, meals and beverage distributors, competitions and the like. Whereas Folsom and July’s smaller Up Your Alley road festivals emphasize public shows of outrageousness, Bearrison leans extra towards feats of power. This 12 months, the honest’s third, will embrace the beloved buns-out deadlift competitors. 

At 2022’s pageant, maybe the primary attraction was a Full Queer Wrestling ring that showcased the resurgence of the delightfully campy sport. Among the many matches, the East Bay duo Cash Energy Re$pect (composed of Marco Mayur and Fabuloso Fabricio) met with defeat by the hands of Southern California’s MyloBoo Barbie and Barbie Boi.
