Notes on Accessibility

It’s important to the Leather Alliance that the weekend be as accessible as possible in many ways.

  • Wheelchair accessibility
    All our event locations are wheelchair accessible, including the main floor of SF Catalyst.
  • ASL interpreters
    All parts of the weekend will have an ASL interpreter on hand. If you need one for the Show and Tell on Saturday afternoon, please let us know so we’re sure to have you covered there too.
  • Mobility
    We will have seating set aside for those that need that space. If you know you’ll need that and haven’t let Angel Garfold know that already, please reach out so we’re sure to have enough space.
  • Affordability
    We don’t want lack of funds to be a barrier to anyone participating in the event. Email lawscholarships@leatheralliance.org with your request. If you’d like to help make sure everyone can join in with a donation, you can donate when you buy your ticket, or PayPal a donation to lthrall.treas@leatheralliance.org.
  • Sober friends
    We will have soda for sale. Additionally, Wicked Grounds will be on site Saturday day and evening (and working on Friday night too) selling non-alcoholic beverages. The sales of alcohol will be in the same room but at a different station. Free water is available to all via dispensers.
  • Food
    If you’re attending the dinner Friday night, all the foods will be marked with a list of ingredients. No alcohol will be used. No onions will be contained. Dressings will be on the side. A vegetarian dish is available as well (vegetarian lasagna).
  • Fragrance sensitivity
    We ask our attendees to keep in mind those that have sensitivity to fragrances. Besides…the smell of leather…mmmm.
  • Have we forgotten something? Please let us know!  We look forward to seeing you there!
