(Note from Tony: This is an annual event that you do NOT want to miss - It is always on the second weekend in November. Think of it as a massive "Family Reunion" event for leathermen from all over the Southern California, Arizona and Nevada areas, along with a lot of men from even further away. I used to be Toastmaster at the opening dinner each year. Palm Springs Leather Pride is always a superb event, without fail. I will DEFINITELY be attending, and I will be gathering information on San Diego men who wish to attend and share lodging and rides. Send an email to FetishMenSanDiego AT gmail DOT com if you want to be on the list.)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASERegistration Now Open for Leather Pride
Palm Springs, CA – September 8, 2010
Palm Springs Leather Order of the Desert (PSLOD) announces that weekend packages and single tickets are now available for Palm Springs Leather Pride 2010. This year’s event will take place November 11-14.
“Our celebration has always been centered around camaraderie and fun,” said Bill Spinney, PSLOD President. “This year we’ve brought back even more of everyone’s favorite activities and worked especially hard to create special experiences that can’t be found anywhere else but in Palm Springs.”
After a three-year hiatus, the popular, super-cruisey Tool Shed/Gear Leather Backlot Party has returned to Friday night. This year’sFormal Leather Dinner has been expanded and moved to a stunning new location. And the Mr. Palm Springs Leather Contest andVictory Dark Dance are returning to the famed Palm Springs Convention Center, where last year they attracted the largest crowds in Leather Pride history.
These events, along with Elbow Grease’s clothing-optional ‘Turning Up The Heat’ Fetish Pool Party Barbecue, the Vendor Marketsand the annual Tom of Finland Foundation Beer Bust Benefit round out the full, yet laid-back weekend schedule.
“The Formal Leather Dinner will be particularly special this year,” says Spinney. “We’ve planned a sumptuous menu, but the real star of the event will be the view!” Dinner will be held at Leon’s Bar and Grill in the North Clubhouse of the world-famous Indian Canyons Golf Resort. A landmark of Palm Springs modernist design, the venue features a sweeping vista of sun-dappled mountains, the beautiful golf course and the historic Walt Disney Fountain. Tickets are reserved exclusively for VIP Weekend Package Holders and are expected to sell out, so participants that are interested in attending are encouraged to register early.
In addition to the dinner, the VIP Weekend Package includes admission to the contest, dance party and barbecue, plus a commemorative T-shirt, collectible dog tags and a run pin. The entire package—over $125 worth of tickets and merchandise—is priced at only $99. “Creating an affordable weekend experience has always been one of our priorities, says Spinney. “I think if you compare, you’ll see that virtually no other major Leather event in the country offers as much value for the money”
Outside of the weekend package, single tickets are available for the Mr. Palm Springs Leather Contest/Victory Dark Dance and the Fetish Pool Party Barbecue. All other activities are free and open to the public.
For detailed information about all of the weekend’s happenings and the opportunity to purchase packages and individual tickets, visit the Leather Pride web site at DesertLeatherPride.com. Unsold tickets, if available, will be sold at the door of most events, but guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance so that they don’t miss out on their favorite activities. All ticketed events are ASL interpreted.
