Leather Events this weekend!





GREENHORN
Geared up bar tour of Hillcrest
Saturday, September 15, 2018
6:30 to 11PM

Greenhorn is BACK, this time we're going out to tour our local Queer Spaces in our gear! So here we go with a Gear Invasion of 4 Hillcrest Bars!

Wear what makes you feel (legally) sexy and have pride! Leather, Rubber, Latex, Sports Gear, Pup Gear, Neoprene, Suit and Tie Fetish, whatever makes you feel sexy! ALL ARE WELCOME!!

Keep up with this event to see which bars we'll be going to at what time! The event kicks off at 6:30 giving attendees time to grab a bite to each before we make our way to the next venue at 8, third venue at 9, and last venue at 10!

If you have questions about the local Leather community, this is a great, low-stress, way of seeing what community has to offer!

Contact Doriam (MisterSDL2018@GMail.com) for more information.




Discovering Leather:
"This is my story when I was new"
Sunday, September 16, 2018
12:00 to 2:00

For the person asking:
  • What's all this Leather business about?
  • Where did this all stem from?
  • How do I find a mentor?
  • How do I get to where you are?
  • Well, what are the right steps to do this whole thing? (spoiler: everyone's journey is different!)
  • Why should I care what someone spewing this supposed-history has to say about anything?

New people and veterans alike, I welcome you to join us at Pleasures and Treasures on Sunday, September 16th from 12-2 for Discovering Leather! Come meet local Leatherfolk and listen to them share a little about themselves, before lending themselves to YOU. Discovering Leather is about the attendees having a space to ask our panelists (4-6) whatever questions they may have regarding our local Leather culture, keeping in mind that no two Leather journeys are the same.

We ask that attendees keep any "One True Way" mindsets at the door. This workshop is hosted by a panel and is by no means the only way to "do" Leather. Each panelist will speak only of their experience and share their insight in hopes of giving you an idea of how to explore your own Leather Path.

II. The Leather Realm within the Pride Festival

From the Leather Realm site: www.sandiegoleatherrealm.com

In 20+ years, the San Diego Leather Realm has grown to become a 28,000+ square foot lushly landscaped, age-restricted area of The San Diego Pride Festival.
The Leather Realm opens its’ doors for 16+ hours of education and fun, hosting 10k to 12k attendees during the annual 2 day Festival every July.

Our mission is one of educational outreach. We are a group of cross-community and club volunteers dedicated to providing visibility, awareness and communication of Safe, Sane and Consensual play, Leather, BDSM, Fetish, and Kink Life Styles through hands-on demonstration areas, workshops, community organizations, and alternative lifestyle friendly businesses.

Our goal is to provide support in the eradication of stereotypical misconceptions within and about the lifestyle choices of the Leather /BDSM /Fetish /Kink /Alternative communities at large.

Our pursuit of these goals is a welcoming and reassuring one. Feel free to try something new or stand back and watch. Come in and check us out. You just may find what you’ve been looking for.

VI: From Me to You

My leather Daddy, Daddy Barry, had a motorcycle accident July 2nd riding home from Palm Springs.  He is lucky to be alive.

My thanks to the lady who lay with him on the highway, bloodiness and all, and cradled him until the ambulance arrived, reassuring him that he would be okay.  My thanks to the emergency staff for getting his wounds tended and his broken left femur set.  Melissa for all the assistive aids after he was discharged home.  Sereana for something she did.  Leather boy Michael for coming and Daddy-sitting so that I could go to yoga last night.  And especially my thanks to our leather family:  slave frank has in particular been invaluable with his nursing background.  dogslave bobby has been doing what he can amidst a very busy work time.  

Love to you all.

V: From ME to YOU

My thanks to Doriam Couto for his tireless efforts on behalf of FMSD.  With his Mr. San Diego Leather 2018 title travels keeping him even busier than before he asked for someone to help keep our blog current.  It is my goal to get something out about every two weeks.

Our workshops have been dark while we are between meeting venues.  Tom's Place is presently rented out, and the farther recent venue just didn't work out.  If you have ideas or leads, please let Doriam, Scott, Papa Tony or me know.

Looking for Volunteers

Howdy Gentleman! This is a shorter post, but please look forward to a longer one (as per usual) later this week!

With Desire coming to a close, the folks over at the compound could use some help unloading the dungeon equipment. If you're available, please reach out for the address. They'll be arriving around 2:30 and will provide dinner. (Plus! They were our generous hosts for this weekends party!)

I (Doriam) am looking for someone to take over keeping the blog current. The schedule of events is put together pretty well in advance, but with the limited time we on the Leadership team have between travel, work, family and such we've let the blog slip through our fingers.

If you are interested in helping Me/Us with the blog, please reach out to me directly at DoriamFMSD@GMail.com

Thank you!

In Service,
Doriam C
