November SFgoL update
The San Francisco girls of Leather have been busy for another month!
We volunteered for the October 17th Leather Alliance beer bust at the Eagle. Check us out in the Bay Times! http://www.sfbaytimes.com/index.php?sec=article&article_id=13899
We also had another social outing to Gay Skate Underwear Night in Redwood City. We will be repeating this in January– all are welcome to join!
Much of the work we have been doing this month is behind the scenes. We are working on paperwork for a grant application, filing papers to become a 501(c)(3), and opening a club bank account. Big thanks to Kate, Rose, and Ava for their work on these things.
We officially voted in our first 13 Full Members! We also have around 70 Associate Members, many of whom are working toward Full Membership. Thank you to Pink for her work on coordinating memberships.
We have already gotten quite a list of people who are interested in being supporting members! Much gratitude to them all. If you are interested in becoming a supporting member, please contact me for more info at Leland@sfgol.org
I want to extend special thanks to Dahn Van Laarz, President of the Leather Alliance, for stopping by our November meeting to give us a presentation on the Alliance and to answer our questions. We are looking forward to finding out if we will be accepted as a member club.
Lance Holman — Mr. SF Leather 2010 and First Runner Up for International Mr. Leather 2010– was so gracious as to allow me to photograph him wearing an “I heart SFgoL” t-shirt. If you haven’t seen it yet, please check it out at SFgoL.org. So hot! We would love to get photos of more community members showing their support this way!
We also have new merchandise. At http://www.cafepress.com/SFgol_supporters you can now purchase black “I heart SFgoL” t-shirts. We know how black goes so well with your leather!
Our upcoming events include The Nov 14th Beer Bust for Mama’s Toys at the Eagle. We are co-sponsoring this event with the San Francisco Leather Daddies boys. You can see me on stage MCing with boy Adam and many of our girls working the event. Special thanks to Daddy David, Daddy Tony, boy Mikey, DJ Mora, and Daddy Vick for volunteering to help with this event.
We are also excited to be volunteering at the Dec 4th ACLC Santa’s Slave Auction.
I’m so proud to say that we have 12 girls signed up to volunteer at the Annual Leather Alliance Volunteer Appreciation Holiday Party on December 5th.
Every time I write an update about our club my heart swells. Thank you girls! And huge thanks to the Leather Community for the ongoing incredible support!
