Prompted by the increase of violent street crime in neighborhoods where we thought we were safe, SFLDG hosts a special meeting devoted to practical discussion about keeping ourselves and each other safe and prepared.
LENNY BROBERG won the Mr San Francisco Leather and International Mr Leather titles in 1992 and has been working hard for the leather, LGBT and San Francisco communities ever since. He has been with the S.F. Police Department for almost as long, nearly twenty years, serving in the rank of Inspector with the SFPD's Gang Task Force and working with community groups on issues of crime and safety. Lenny's wide-ranging activism has garnered awards and acclaim (e.g., Pantheon Leather "Man of the Year" 1995), but he may be best known as everybody's favorite master of ceremonies for leather and LGBT events, both locally and nationally. He will be emcee for International Mr Leather XXXV in May of this year.

Resolved to fight back, Dalton has focused his energy on spreading crime awareness and the importance surrounding safety. He's currently working with Stop the Violence and Castro Community on Patrol in hopes it will help bring a sense of safety back to our streets.
