                   How the CMC Carnival Became the Folsom Street Fair
                  The Role of Photography in the Psychology of Leather and
                     the Image of Homomasculine-Identified Gay Men



             My first feature article about the CMC Carnival (1977) was written
             November 27, 1977, and was published in Drummer 20 (January 1978)
             with seventeen photographs shot by “David Sparrow and Jack Fritscher.”
                My second feature about the CMC Carnival (1978) was written
             November 26, 1978, the Sunday before the Monday Harvey Milk and
             Mayor Moscone were assassinated; it was published in Drummer 26 (Jan-
             uary 1979) with thirteen photographs shot by “David Sparrow and Jack
             Fritscher.” The second article appears again in proper serial order with the
             contents of Drummer 26 in Gay San Francisco: Eyewitness Drummer.


             In Drummer 20, my second issue edited fully under my byline, I wrote
             my first of two essays about the annual bacchanalian saturnalia, the
             CMC Carnival, hosted by the California Motor Club. (Not “California
             Motorcycle Club.”) In the first report, I celebrated that long-running San
             Francisco party cum orgy as if it would never end.
