Peter Fiske in Conversation with Erik Will, followed by a whipping demonstration
Please join us for a celebration of San Francisco's, California's, IML's and the USA's beloved "Leather Yoda" as he marks fifty years in leather and BDSM. We'll talk a walk down memory lane with Peter, view selections from his renowned whip collection, and see a demonstration of his legendary singletail skills.
There is only one Peter Fiske, folks. Like all great leathermen, he's an original, and unlike so many great names of the past, he's still with us and active as ever, living proof that sweetness and sadism need not be mutually exclusive. Don't miss this opportunity to get up close and personal with a bonafide icon who doesn't seem to know he is one.
PETER FISKE has beeen a leatherman since March 1964. He is a Stonewall veteran and continues to be an activist in the LGBT and leather communities, working tirelessly for inclusion and acceptance for all in BDSM and Leather. He served on the board of the S.F. AIDS Emergency Fund from 1997 to 2002, as President of AEF in 2000, and is a co-founder of the BCEF (Breast Cancer Emergency Fund). He served as well on the S.F. Pride board from 2002 to 2005 and as S.F. Leather Daddy XXI.
Daddy Peter has been a mentor and BDSM educator/player all his adult life,presenting hundreds of programs all over the country. He is the senior member and Chairman Emeritus of the 15 Association and former Chairman and Co-Ordinator of Delta International. He is a two-time Pantheon of Leather awardee, for the Western region and for Lifetime Achievemen, and was also honored with the Hank Cook Service award by AEF and by S.F. Pride with the 2005 Heritage of Pride award for longtime service to the S.F. LGBT community.
"How did I get to be a village elder? I don't know, but I care about those coming into Leather now and about our future. I will continue to work (and play!) as long as I can to keep BDSM healthy, safe and fun, and to keep us free to be ourselves. My motto is Play Hard, Live Free, support the LA&M and always tip your bartenders generously."
