The San Francisco girls of Leather (SFgoL) are so happy to welcome ava as our new Secretary and Angel as our new Treasurer!
We are also proud to report that we now have 30 full members! We are excited that without fail every month we have new girls who are attending their very first meeting.
August brought a successful end to our toiletry drive. Since we had already overwhelmed La Casa de las Madres with the generous donations from the Leather community, we dropped the remaining 9 boxes off to Women Organized to Make Abuse Nonexistent, Inc. (WOMAN Inc.) This marked the start of a new relationship between WOMAN Inc. and the SFgoL. Our member Z is taking lead on organizing volunteer opportunities. During August we helped stuff gift bags and staffed their volunteer appreciation party.
Our mentor/mentee program within the SFgoL is going so well that we have decided to expand it! We are welcoming members of the Leather community to contact us if they would like to offer mentorship to one of our girls. If you have something to offer, whether it be a BDSM skill, organizational know-how, or lessons on Leather history please contact us at email@example.com to be paired with a girl!
Many of our girls attended the San Francisco Slut Walk to march in solidarity with people who have been victims of sexual assault.
At Leather-Levi Weekend we joined forces with the Exiles to create a stop during the Saturday evening cocktail party. We brought juice and champagne (pink, of course!) and the Exiles provided tasty chocolate treats.
We attended the Alameda County Leather (ACL) contest in support of our girl, Kate, who ran and won the title of Ms ACL 2011! We are so proud!!!
On August 27th we are participating in Balls to the Walls Leather Softball Exhibition and Social organized by Jessie Vanciel, Leland Carina, and Daddy Ray Tilton. The SFgoL are so excited to socialize with boys who might be interested in being part of the San Francisco boys of Leather and everyone else who comes to hang out. The National Anthem will be sung by Queen Cougar. Beth Downey and Deborah Isadorah Wade will be umpires.
We have an upcoming slumber party (girls and potential girls only!) at the Center for Sex and Culture on September 9th. Directly following we will be serving lunch at Glide soup kitchen.
Make sure to look for us at Venus’ Playground during Folsom!
I’m so proud of our club and everything that we are working on!
