Onyx Northwest

Onyx Northwest

The Leather Alliance Weekend is proud to have Onyx Northwest as a Community-level sponsor. Without their generous support, this weekend would not be possible.

ONYX is an organization formed and operated by Men of Color who enjoy the leather lifestyle. ONYX sets as its goal to provide an informational and social organization to address issues specific to people of color who chose to project the positive aspects of the leather lifestyle and support our community and economic initiatives.

In October 2017, ONYX Northwest became an official ONYX chapter as voted on by the national board! This is great news! The chapter founders are excited :). Steaming ahead, however, we are currently in the process of becoming a legally recognized social organization. The Northwest chapter covers California (the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento and Monterey Areas), Washington, Oregon and Alaska and Northern Nevada (i.e. Reno).

Are you interested in joining the ONYX brotherhood? We invite you to join our google group to become informed about the chapter and apply for membership. The deadline to apply for 2018 is March 31st.

Boundless

The Leather Alliance Weekend is proud to have Boundless as a Community-level sponsor. Without their generous support, this weekend would not be possible.

Boundless is a four-day intimate kink retreat at a beautiful secluded resort just north of San Francisco.  This year it will be June 8-11, 2018.

Boundless provides a unique experience that brings together people from every corner of the BDSM, leather, and the sex-positive worlds; providing both the intimacy of a party with friends and the opportunity to get to know new people over the course of a few days. Boundless is a place where you can arrive as strangers and leave belonging to new community. That’s why we say, Relax, Play, Bond.

All experience levels, kinks, fetishes, sex positive attitudes, genders, and orientations are welcome; there is no such thing as “not being kinky enough.” Kink is a state of mind.

The Yellow and Black Group is for and about adults who enjoy including watersports (piss play) as part of their sexual or BDSM activities or fantasies. We exist to host parties for such folks, and we also encourage sex-friendly venues to welcome and provide facilities for wet play, and to include that feature in their marketing. Our first men’s party was held recently at SF Catalyst, and was a great success.  Our next party is Friday, March 23 at the same location.
