Leather Journal 25 Year Recognition Dinner, Feb. 14
(Note from Tony: For decades, the Leather Journal has been the best, highest-quality way to stay connected with the Leather/Fetish community of the western half of the United States. Dave Rhodes is one of those rare characters who just keeps GOING, rather than burning out and dropping away. Dave and I have been friends for many years. He is a fine, fine man, whom I admire deeply.
Here is a quote from LA Pride a couple of years back:
"Dave Rhodes is the publisher, editor and owner of The Leather Journal, which was founded in 1987; however, his work extends beyond the leather community. Dave is committed to remembering the past and sharing it with others to further social acceptance. He has played a selfless part in serving the LGBT community through a variety of publications that support common goals.
Dave is an example of an individual whose hard work, commitment and inclusiveness has made a tremendous impact on building bridges between the LGBT community and their allies."
