Krewe de Kinque, the San Francisco social and fundraising group based on a Mardi Gras theme, put our own brand of KINK into Leather Week! We booked the return of our famous FULL MOON PARTY â€śwhere any butt can enter, and some asshole will win!â€ť The Full Moon Contest was held on Sept. 22, during a full moon of course, at The Edge. From 8 p.m. to midnight, KdK held a Pabst Blue Ribbon $8 beer bust and benefit raffle for Magnet, the social well being and health hub in the Castro for gay and bisexual men. The Edge had been beautifully decorated in Mardi Gras theme with the official colors (green, gold, and purple) in fabric, masks, and beads absolutely everywhere. Entertainment was provided by the talented Mr. Kippy on electrified violin playing jazzy Nâ€™Orleans style Zydeco music. Reigning KdK King John Weber was the exciting emcee.
The Full Moon Contest offered a $100 cash prize for the winner. There were lots of tourists in town, so we got to show them a good time, and got some of them to display some hot ass! Reigning KdK Queen VII Sister Dana, past KdK Queen IV Joan Crawford Texas, and Terry Dyer (program manager for the Our Love Project of Stop AIDS, which promotes positive images of African Americans in the Castro) were the three judges in the contest. We held interviews and humorous questioning of each contestant, grading from one to ten in three categories: stage presence, talent (the ass itself), and entertainment value (audience reaction).
Kippy, the winner, donated back the entire $100 prize to Magnet. Now THATâ€™S the spirit of Mardi Gras: Laissez les bon temps roulez = Let the good times roll!
Will was first runner-up and second runner-up was Janet â€śBig Booty Judyâ€ť (yes, women also felt free to enter their daring derrieres in the contest).
Other entrants (using their stage names) were Boone, Dolores Park, K-Dawg from Alabama, Richie Rich, Miguel of El Salvador, JC â€śmy ass is a very outspoken advocate for kink-positive shenanigans,â€ť Spike, Roy â€śI will accept rockets in my full moon,â€ť Skeletonâ€™s Rose, and Matt.
Mark your calendars for the next full moon and the next Full Moon Party at the Edge. Feel free to come in costume and/or mask. And with every beer bust bought or raft of raffle tickets purchased, free beads are given to place around your neck or ask a stranger to â€śshow me somethinâ€™, mister,â€ť which traditionally means the dick in Gay Orleans.
Weâ€™re always looking for new Friends of the Krewe and Full Members who enjoy the spirit of Mardi Gras, fabulous parties, and charitable causes.
