It is with great pleasure that I write my first official message as the President of the San Francisco girls of Leather. Every month I will write an update so that girls and supporters may all be apprised as to what the SFgoL are up to.
I’d like to start by saying that at every step the SFgoL have exceeded my expectations! Here we are 5 months in with elected officers and bylaws!
I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped with the creation of the bylaws. This includes SFgoL committee members and outside supporting community members. Specifically– a very special thanks to Kate– her and I spent 12 hours together working out all the details. Also, Sister Titiana of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Daddy Vick who both provided very copious notes and suggestions.
Enormous thanks to all of the girls who stepped up to commit to a year of service for the SFgoL. Here is our official Steering Committee:
Vice President- Kate
Sergeant at Arms- Pink
Steering Committee member- Sailor
Steering Committee member- Zed
I’d also like to report that this last month we had many successful outings!
We volunteered at Folsom’s Venus’ Playground. We had girls on DM shifts, set up, and break down.
We attended Ms. SF Leather en masse. It was amazing to see so many girls in pink, red, black, and white and to hear the cheers as our colors were displayed. I had the great honor of carrying the Leather girl flag as part of the Color Guard. Thank you to Liza and Jody for inviting us to do that!
We had a social outing to Gay Skate Night in Redwood City! Very fun and certainly something we would like to repeat.
We also really enjoyed helping with the Exiles’ Orientation. It was so much fun to help to introduce new people to the organization and to BDSM in general.
I am excited to announce that with a unanimous vote of voting members present, we decided to apply to become a member group of the San Francisco Bay Area Leather Alliance. We enjoyed staffing their food table at the October 17th beer bust at the Eagle Tavern. You will also see us volunteering at the SFBALA Holiday Party on December 5th.
I’m very excited about the Beer Bust for Mama’s Toys on November 14th! For the last couple of years this event has been coordinated by the San Francisco Leather Daddy’s boys. This year we are working with them and it will be co-hosted by the SFgoL! I will be co-MCing with the current SF Daddy’s Leather boy Adam and many SFgoL are taking on volunteer shifts. Please come– remember to bring new unwrapped toys for children of any age.
You can also look for us during ladies’ night at Bondage a Go Go. We’ve heard reports that our postcards can’t be kept in stock there– so we will be visiting in person for recruiting efforts. Thanks to Stephanos for encouraging us.
If you heart the SFgoL– now you can show it! (http://www.cafepress.com/SFgol_supporters) A small amount of the price of each item goes to benefit our club.
You can also show your support by becoming a Supporting Member. Please contact me for details. Our Supporting Members already include: Stephanos, Chey, Pony, and Jim.
So many good things and so much amazing support from the community! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Yours in Leather girl service,
