NEWS YOU CAN USE













From Mr L.A. Leather 2014, Eric Paul Leue:
This is important.

When I first came around as a gay man, and leatherman, I had difficulties finding my tribe. Later when I was comfortable in my community I was confronted with the T in LGBTQ, and I was challenged to open my mind.

It was hard at first because, how do I ask without offending? How do I learn without being thought to stare? How do I feel about a transgender man being in an all male environment?

I am still not done learning, I don't think I ever will, because everyone is unique. Whether L, G, B, T, Q, or else. What I do know though is that if you identify as male, you are male. Our transgender brothers and sisters should not have to be scrutinized by us, who are just beginning to feel the fruits of our fight for equality and acceptance. It wasn't long ago were the G in LGBTQ was just as disregarded and looked down upon.

We are all one community. So when I hear of clubs refusing my dear friend boy tyler ABW titleholder and club member of 15 & Delta being refused by the Dallas Discipline Corps - I cringe. Yes a club has the authority to choose who can and can not join, but I wish that we open our eyes and learn to understand that what we do when exclude is nothing less than the discrimination we have fought.

I am not talking about giving up our male space and making everything open to all, but I am talking of accepting our sisters into female space, our brothers into male space, and if it is a mixed party - well there 'ya go.

Would we exclude men that aren't goldstar gays and may have slept with women before discovering their gay or bisexuality from a gay male party?? I think not.

Open your mind, open your hearts, open your legs - as ever you please. But do not turn from being the oppressed to being the oppressor.

************************************************
From Donnie: In Lieu of a Discussion on Wednesday Feb. 18 (Third Wednesday of the Month) I am inviting all the FMSD Guys interested to come and join Me at the BDSM Social which is now hosted by Daddy Vinnie and Lolitah Hayes. (If you were present in October for My ageplay discussion, they were two of my guest speakers)

This event is one of San Diego's oldest running "Meet and Greet" Socials.

It started in 1997 and has met every month since. From meager beginnings, the Social grew to become a premiere activity in the area for all types of "BDSM" individuals. It brought together a large pan-sexual group, all yearning to find others in a safe, sane and consensual forum. We found acceptance, friends in numbers and others that shared the same intriguing thoughts and activities.
The Group Meets on the Patio in back of the restaurant through the Bar Area which is Heated and Multi Levels and there is an Area that is good for those that smoke Cigars Etc.

There is a Raffle for Awesome Paddles and Floggers that are 50¢ Each. The Restaurant Offers Happy Hour on several food and drink options.

This is Great Opportunity to meet new friends and show what FMSD is About and Up to in 2015.

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.
