May Program: Earning Your Leathers


Friday May 17, 2019    
7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


SF Catalyst
1060 Folsom Street, San Francisco, CA, 94103

Event Type

Earning your leathers is a tradition in the Leather Community — the D/s and M/s communities in particular — that is almost LOST! It’s a tradition that has been associated with the submissive or slave or service person doing something that signifies that they have earned the right to wear an item of leather, the most valued symbol of our community.

Is that still true?/ Is this still a valuable protocol? How do we show that some has ‘Mastered’ a skill or a service, and why would we do that?

The moderators have gathered a panel of Doms and subs, Mistresses, Msters, slaves, boys, and girls to answer these questions. They will tell how they have earned their leathers or how the Doms have made that a part of their protocols, and why they do it. Join us to hear their stories!

The panel will be moderated by Bobbie, Ms. San Francisco Leather 2019, and Reika, Ms. San Francisco Leather 1st Runner Up 2019.

(NOTE: The ramp at Catalyst will not be functional for this program meeting, so the space is unfortunately not completely accessible. We are committed to making our meetings accessible, so we are very sorry for this state of affairs. We are working with Catalyst to correct this for future meetings.)
