Happy 2012! The end of 2011 was great for the SFgoL.
SFgoL had our annual elections! Our 2012 officers are President- Leland Carina, Vice President- Kate McKinley, Secretary- ava, Treasurer- Angel, and Sergeant at Arms- Pink. Two members at large were also voted in- Zed and Zabet.
We expanded our Mentor/Mentee program. People of all genders and identifications are invited to sign up to mentor our girls. Please contact Angel (nrthangel1970 at yahoo dot com) to start the process of being paired.
Our VP Kate organized a successful work-day for the Center for Sex and Culture.
Summer has been holding a pre-meeting meet-up every month to provide a space for social time before our business meetings.
Zabet organized an educational program with WOMAN Inc. We are excited about creating an ongoing relationship with their organization.
We’re working together with International Ms Leather Weekend to help them promote IMsL locally. Zed is heading this up. We’re excited to be bronze sponsors. We’ll be stuffing packets again—come out and help us!
We attended and volunteered for Alameda County Leather Corps Santa Slave Auction in support of our girl Kate who is Ms ACLC 2011. Two girls were auctioned off!
For the Leather Alliance Volunteer Appreciation party ava coordinated 15 volunteers! We very much enjoyed offering service and socializing with volunteers from the greater community.
ava also spearheaded a volunteer effort with 20 girls and supporters to help clean the new SF Citadel space.
Last, but certainly not least, we have new SFgoL pins! Please find a girl to buy one. There are Leather girl Pride flags as well as “I heart SFgoL” supporter pins.
On August 19th come dance with us at Debauchery at the White Horse in Oakland.
SFgoL is so happy to be bronze sponsors of Northwest Leather Celebration. We will be hosting the Meet and Greet on May 18th.
We look forward to continuing to contribute to the Leather community in 2012!
