San Francisco Plans First Public Park Honoring Gay Leather Culture






UPCOMING EVENTS

Note from Tony:  For men with open minds, the FMSD newsletter will include news about more and more educational events that are NOT exclusively for gay males.  Why?  Because FMSD can't do it all, and we have dozens and dozens more mentors and educators in our local community who want to reach out to us, SPECIFICALLY.  In my own case, I've learned an enormous amount over my lifetime from folks who were not remotely like me, but come from the same place of generous sharing of wisdom.  



We are entering a new, Internet-fed phase where "Information Shared is Wisdom Multiplied".  These wonderful, big-hearted new Tribemembers warmly invite us to come play, learn, grow and build friendships that will last a lifetime!


Friday, February 20, 7-9PM: BDSM 101 -- Presented by The Stomping Ground

Location:
Stephina Photography
1235 Hotel Circle South Suite C San Diego CA 92108

BDSM 101 is an informative class for those just discovering the kink community and a great refresher for getting back to basics for those who are already in it. We will be going over everything from the basic terms and negotiations, to protocols and dungeon etiquette, to equipment and toys used in play. Please come ready with questions and feel free to PM me beforehand with anonymous inquiries.

Presented by: Muffin-Anna Ab

Muffin is a strong presence in the local San Diego community. Along with her social advocacy work, she volunteers her time at BDSM events such as the Leather Realm, various Club X events, and is the president of San Diego girls of Leather. Muffin devotes her free time on further perfecting herself on play techniques and educating herself and others on her knowledge of BDSM.

The Los Angeles Leather Coalition and the LA Leather Pride Committee are happy to announce that the 2015 Los Angeles Leather Pride Celebration will take place the week of March 22 – 29, 2015.  The theme of this year’s event will be The Tribe: Celebrating the Rites of Passage.

The highlight of Leather Pride will be the selection of Mr. Los Angeles Leather 2015, which will take place on Saturday March 28th at a location to be announced soon.
And as an extra special attraction, the wild and popular OFF SUNSET FESTIVAL street fair will be held on Sunday Mach 29, 2015 the day after the Mr. LA Leather contest and LEGION dance, extending a full weekend of leather and kink fun for everyone!

A series of Mr. LA Leather “Feeder Contests” are being held across the city by various clubs and businesses to select their representing contestant.  The qualifying contest schedule is posted on the LA Leather Pride website at laleatherpride.com, and will be updated as new dates are added.

Also confirmed to be returning for 2015 are the very popular Southland Honors Awards celebration as well as The Assembly Uniform Reception.

Additional events will be added soon, so you can expect a full week-long celebration of the leather lifestyle.  The 2014 event was a huge success, resulting in significant donations to charity beneficiaries.  The 2015 committee expects to out-do those results, and are pulling out all the stops to create a fantastic event week that everyone will want to be part of.

Contestants from last year.  It was a GREAT event!
