Folsom Street Events Announces Partnership With Mario Diaz
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (AUGUST 8, 2018) – Folsom Street Events is proud to announce that Deviants – The Official Closing Party of Folsom Street Fair, will be co-produced by LA Club King, Mario Diaz.
For over 20 years, Mario Diaz has crafted his own iconic image as the premier LGBT nightlife king, throwing some of the sexiest and wildest parties from Seattle, to New York, to LA. Including the insanely appealing Hot Dog, Full Frontal Disco and BFD (The longest running weekly queer party in the country.) He is also the creator, and former owner, of the infamous NYC East Village Bar THE COCK, an aspiring actor, and co lead singer of the band, Dirty Sanchez. It is his great honor to have been titled “The King Of Sleaze” by The New York Times and “Svengali Of Sleaze” by the illustrious Paper Magazine. Mario loves puppies, pizza, and tube socks… but hates your flip-flops.
“I am thrilled, and honored, to be producing one of my favorite events: Deviants.” says Mario Diaz. “This party consistently has the best DJs, great booze, great people, and great dancing. It’s diverse, dark, and dirty – Just the way I like it. With my event production, I’ve always tried to embrace, and embody, shameless, in your face, sexuality. Creating something stylish, nasty, inclusive, but always tongue and cheek. The underlying message I work hard to convey is simple: Sex is natural and beautiful and fun… even when it’s in a dark alley and leaves welts! As far as sex-positive gatherings go, there is really nothing anywhere quite like Folsom Street Fair. It is the gold standard. Deviants is going to be a good ole fashioned down and dirty dance party and I can’t wait! I’ve already got my Deviants panties on.”
Patrick Finger, Executive Director, says: “Folsom Street Events could not be more excited to put Mario Diaz in the Deviants driver’s seat. This is the perfect venue for Mario to do what he does best- produce outlandish, edgy, sex positive events. If you’ve ever wished you could keep the vibe of Folsom Street Fair going all night long, Mario Diaz is going to make that happen!”
