Upcoming Events (SD Leather Pride 2011 Edition)

We're currently at 836 members, with more added on a constant basis.

I've been re-thinking how I'd like the next phase of FMSD's events to look like. For a while there, I was rapidly expanding plans for more and more events, and I think I hit the wall… So, I've stopped the dance-party, in favor of sending everybody over to Chris Vance's super-popular dance at Numbers (details below).

My main focus is currently on:

- Our monthly events, which are becoming better and better every month. The level of satisfaction is way beyond what I ever expected, and the numbers are rising, as well.

- Promoting events hosted by new, rising stars among us. As soon as I know about them, you will too.

I have to keep shifting plans, because our local culture is changing in ways that are wonderful and unpredictable. To wear out a tired old metaphor, San Diego's fetishmen community is a waking giant. We have been here all along, but now we're finding each other again, and we are working together in ever-growing numbers.

The next couple of weeks are going to be the biggest events for the year in our local Tribe. San Diego Leather Pride events are the ones that attract a lot of out-of-towners, and gather together the largest numbers of San Diegans. Time to dust off the gear and work the crowd!

-=-=-=-=- UPCOMING EVENTS -=-=-=-=-

Friday, March 11, 9PM-1AM: DRESS IT UP/STRIP IT DOWN at the Eagle. This has become the biggest fetishmen event in San Diego every month!  Approximately 300 men come cycling through the bar during the course of this event on the second Friday of each month, and many of us are dressed (or undressed) to impress!  Here are a few reviews, if you haven't been to one yet.  This month's spotlight will be on Men In Kilts. You'll be encouraged to bring that kilt out of deep storage and wear it in public with manly pride! That'll definitely be worth a kick-ass group photo as well. Here are the pictures from October and February. Notice how HAPPY everybody is. You deserve to be that happy too.

  March 10 - Thursday, 7:30PM. All Clubs Night. Kick-Off Event. I want to see a lot of Fetishmen there!

March 26th; Mr. Los Angeles Leather 2011 Contest. There are two reasonably-local BIG fetishmen events near San Diego every year - LA Leather in late May and Palm Springs Leather Pride on the second weekend in November (to avoid the heat). These are both well-worth making travel plans for, even for a single day-trip. If you plan to behave in a very um, SINGLE sort of way, this is your golden opportunity!

Friday, April 1, 7PM: SDLOG monthly educational meeting: KNOT FUN with Micahel Sol, from SoCal Shibari

Saturday, April 2, 9PM-2AM; BearNight Dance at Numbers. $5 cover. First Saturday of each month. Lots of leathermen attend this event...

Sunday, April 3, 5-8PM: CIGARS & BOOTS at Redwing, hosted by California LeatherSir Miles B. First Sunday of each month, out on the patio at Redwing. Unbelievably congenial crowd… Like nothing you've ever seen. The perfect Gentlemen's Club vibe. You'd think these men have been best friends for decades, and there's room for more, so come on over and mingle freely…

Wednesday, April 6, 9PM: PUPPY NIGHT at the Eagle, hosted by Pup DragZ and San Diego Puppy Play (SDPP). First Wednesday of each month.

April 8-10; Leather Leadership Conference in Los Angeles

April 16-17; Phoenix Pride

May 21-22; Long Beach Pride

- If you're going to International Mr. Leather 2011 weekend in late May in Chicago, NOW would be a really good time to make sure that your travel and lodging plans are completed.

June 10-12; Los Angeles Pride

June 25-26; San Francisco Pride

July 15-17, San Diego Pride 

July 28-30; International Leather Sir/boy/Community Boot Black in San Francisco, leading into...
