Efrain John Gonzalez is a bisexual photographer, tour guide, and artist. He gives tours of the historic locations of popular
kink and fetish clubs in Manhattan through a company named the Hellfire Tours, predominantly in the “Meat-Packing District”,
below the old subway rail known as the “High Line”. Gonzalez formerly took photographs of people and places in the Meat-Packing
District when it was a thriving community, and published his work on the Hellfire Tours’ website to advertise. It is apparent
Gonzalez was also very involved in the bisexual activist community, as he documented the happenings at the San Francisco Bisexual
Conference throughout the 90s. Seemingly, he was also very involved in the queer community at large; his photography also
captures prominent figures of San Francisco Pride parades, and queer joy between friends and partners.
