January SFgoL update

The SFgoL have so many great things planned for the new year!

January 22nd will bring our very first SFgoL slumber party! We are looking forward to lots of pink, pajamas, pillow fights and other oh-so-girly things. If you identify as a girl of Leather, please come. If not– keep an eye out for the photos!

We Need Panties! …among other things! Please join us as we kick off a women’s toiletry drive for La Casa de las Madres. This amazing women’s shelter is always in need of basic items like boxes of diapers and tampons, toothpaste and toothbrushes, shampoo and conditioner, and, yes, packs of underwear. A full wish-list of personal care items they can use can be found on their website. We will be starting this toiletry drive off on Jan. 28th with a drop box at Eclipse the SF Citadel’s play party for the women and trans community. Please make sure items are brand new and we will make sure they get to La Casa de las Madres where they will be put to really good use! Can’t make it to Eclipse? Don’t worry, we will have more opportunities and occasions for you to donate to this wonderful cause. Just keep your eyes peeled for more SFgoL events. Thank you in advance! And thanks to our girls Sailor and Lola for heading this up.

We will be once again volunteering to help with the Exiles’ Orientation on February 4th in San Francisco.

Please come to Debauchery at the White Horse Tavern in Oakland on Sunday, February 20th for our first club fundraiser! We are so lucky to have the MC and performance talents of SFgoL member Ms. Alotta Boutté, as well as many fabulous raffle prizes! With thanks to tehlola for coordinating.

In March, keep an eye out for our girls working hard during Leather Alliance Weekend. We’re so excited to help with the event that will bring San Francisco a new Mr. SF Leather.

We are very proud of our Sergeant at Arms, Pink, who is Co-coordinating a committee that aims to bring the Carter Johnson Leather Library to the San Francisco Bay Area for Folsom weekend. Many of our girls will be helping with this project, but more help is needed. If you would like to be involved, please contact impink at gmail dot com

We’re so happy that August and Phil from the Citadel have generously donated the use of their space for a May 1st fundraiser! We have many ideas of how to make this an amazing May Day event. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details!

As always, much thanks to the community for your support.
