BELT Party - What is it?

Note from Tony: All photos are by the professional photographer Cali Griebel. Her studio is called Photos By Cali, and you should definitely check out the thousands of photos on her site. Hundreds of her photos from the previous BELT parties can be found here: December 2011 and March 2012. The next BELT Party is at Numbers at 10PM on Saturday, June 30, 2012.

Back in 2011, a team of young men calling themselves CubClub attended Folsom Street Fair, and came home inspired by the spirit of camaraderie and Tribe that they experienced there. 

They already had experience creating exciting dance-parties, but now they wanted to create something radically new for San Diego in the same spirit as the Folsom Street Fair.

They succeeded. This is a whole new tradition that folks can depend upon. 

Dore Alley, Folsom Street Fair, and the International Mr. Leather Contest all started small (not so long ago) and got more and more popular as time went by. Now, they are locked-in as if they have been around since the beginning of time, because they DELIVER a wonderful result, time after time.

Now, Southern California has something exciting, big and beautifully-organized that happens regularly. People are starting to plan their vacations around the BELT parties! 

No matter what your age, body-style, experience-level or color, you're going to fit right in. We will have several DOZEN Community Representatives (look for the name badges) who will be there to make sure that new, shy folks feel welcome, and to answer any questions you might have.

Why? Because our community was harmed by AIDS a while ago, and we never really recovered from the loss of so many of our leaders, mentors and role-models. Now that it's 2012 and beyond, it's time to gather together our entire community and celebrate that we made it through.

Joy doesn't work if only a few "elite" folks get to experience it. Joy works best when EVERYBODY gets some!

Now that there have been several BELT parties, CubClub's reputation for providing excellent social events is unsurpassed. I'm going to let the pictures tell the story now:

If you can see yourself in the mix, then don't arrive late - there will be a long line outside!

  1. Come one, come ALL! Let's build San Diego's Leather Community to where it should be. Wouldn't it be FANTASTIC to have a Dore Alley-type annual event right here in San Diego?
