WHO WE ARE
We are a group of self-identified Leathergirls. Membership is not limited by race, creed, orientation or gender; however, an identification of Leathergirl is essential. A girl-heart is an individual self-identity. San Francisco girls of Leather is a unique and powerful group of individuals — our solidarity and commonality is found in our understanding that the definition of Leathergirl involves who you are and not just how you play.

WHAT WE DO
SFgoL holds monthly meetings, communicates via discussion board, does outreach at Leather events throughout the Bay Area, and volunteers for a variety of non-profit organizations.

Our mission is twofold:

To provide camaraderie, and a safe space to any individual who identifies as a Leathergirl.
To provide community service within & outside of the Bay Area Leather Community at large.

We are comprised solely of volunteers – from the officers to the presenters. Many thanks to the people who have worked to make the Exiles YOUR club!

The Mission of the Ms. San Francisco Leather contest is to create and maintain an annual contest/event that (1) celebrates our diverse and dynamic Greater San Francisco Bay Area leather/kink/fetish community, and (2) raises money to support the work of relatively small non-profit organizations. Each year at the Ms. San Francisco Leather contest, an esteemed panel of judges selects a leatherwoman to represent our community. This representative is a leatherwoman who exemplifies the principles of honor, service and community commitment.

Build Public

Our cities and neighborhoods deserve great public space.

When properly cared for, urban plazas, parks and streets unite communities, providing safe shared places to relax, play, connect and celebrate.

When neglected, they divide communities and undermine shared values.

At Build Public we apply the spirit of innovation to empower neighborhoods to fund, build and maintain great public places.

We Build Trust, Place, and Policy.

A Safe Place to Learn and Play

Six (0266)If you’re kinky, or even if you’re not sure yet, come and join us. We are a friendly bunch. Don’t worry about what you’re wearing either. Whether you’re into leather, rubber, latex, fetish gear or you’re just a “jeans n’ T-shirt” kinda guy, it simply doesn’t matter. It’s YOU that matters and YOU we want to see at our event. It’s not about what you wear — hell, many men are naked all weekend. It’s not about your body type or age, or even your level of experience. It’s not about BDSM (bondage, discipline and sadomasochism) or leather or gear.

This is a weekend specifically for and by men who are into BUTTS, HOLES and HANDS (and other related stuff). So leave your friends who faint at the thought of sticking a hand up someone’s butt at home! If you’re into ASSPLAY, this is the weekend for YOU.
