December San Francisco girls of Leather update
Happy holidays from the SFgoL!
I’m happy to announce that the SFgoL have been accepted as a member group of the San Francisco Bay Area Leather Alliance! We are looking forward to the connections this brings and the expanded opportunities it represents for us.
We want to extend an enormous amount of gratitude to the (sadly) dissolved San Francisco boys of Leather. The SFboL donated their remaining assets to us! This was a large donation and makes quite a difference for us in the forming of our club. We are very touched; it is such a sweet gesture and a heartwarming welcome to the community.I’m pleased to report that we had many successful events this month!
We co-hosted the Beer Bust for Mama’s Toys at the SF Eagle Tavern with the SF Leather Daddy’s boys. Together we collected 12 huge garbage bags full of toys and over $1,800 for Sunburst Projects! Special thanks to boy Adam, Daddy David, Daddy Vick, DJ Mora, Daddy Tony, and boy Mikey for their volunteer efforts in addition to many of our girls.
We had an SFgoL photo shoot in Dolores Park, with the amazing photographer Jules of Queer Lens Photography (http://homophoto.carbonmade.com/). Please stay tuned for images! It was so much fun.Five of our girls volunteered at the ACLC Santa Slave Auction. Three of us were even auctioned off! Thanks to Trinity for her awesome coordinating efforts.
With thanks to Ms. Cat, we had the wonderful opportunity to sell our supporter merchandise at Eclipse. (http://www.cafepress.com/SFgol_supporters)We had 13 girls working the Leather Alliance Holiday Party! If you haven’t checked out Rich’s photos of the event, I would highly suggest it. We’ve got some cute girls! And SFgoL underwear! (http://RichTrove.com) Special thanks to the Leather Alliance for asking me to give the welcoming announcement for the opening of the party as the President of the newest member club.
I want to extend thanks to the Exiles’ for printing our updates in the Exiles’ Fringe.
Special thanks to Mr. S Leather who let us meet in their back production room this month. We very much appreciated the smell of leather!
You can look for us at the following upcoming events… we’re helping with the December 12th Exiles’ Orientation and the Exiles’ Carnal Carnival on Dec 17th.
January will bring the first SFgoL sleepover. It’s for girl’s only and will include pajamas and pillow fights!
We’re still working out the details, but we are planning on having a presence at both IMsL and LLW.
We are hoping to have a couple of our own fundraisers in the new year. Please keep an eye out for details as we solidify them.
If you would like to become a Supporting Member of the SFgoL, please contact me for details.
And last– very special thanks to all community members who have approached me to praise our club or offered help in so many ways. I’m so proud of what we have done already and I’m so excited to see what we will be able to do in the future.
Yours in Leather,
