December 2016: Volunteer Appreciation and Holiday Party

 Illustration graciously donated by Justin Hall.  Justin is an avid member and supporter of the Leathermen's Discussion Group for many years. He recently led a discussion about his lifelong passion of erotic art and it's place in the kink community. We are ecstatic that Justin calls San Francisco his home.  When asked to contribute original art for the 20th anniversary commemoration of LDG, he did not hesitate. He wanted to doing something very special that captured the essence of LDG as one of the most important binding forces of the leather and kink community of San Francisco. What you see here is the result of that. What an honor it is to be able to share Justin's 20th Anniversary original artwork with the rest of the world.

This isn't just our annual holiday and volunteer appreciation party. Its definitely during the holidays, and we will absolutely be saying thank you to our talented and sexy volunteers...

 

We will also be celebrating our 20th anniversary. LDG has been offering programming continuously since 1996, and are going strong into our 21st year. Lets raise a toast to an organization which has been bringing people in the Leather and Kink community for so long!

Fetish Fair Weekend 2016: Whips in the Park

 Whips in the Park is a fun, social hangout near the playground/bathrooms at Duboce Park. Join Daddyr Robert and the folks from SFLDG - San Francisco Leathermen's Discussion Group for this peer to peer whips skills demonstration. We'll have a few extra whips to try, and lots of folks on hand to show their techniques, tips, and tricks to playing with single tails. We will even have some target practice games—but no people, since that would scare the neighbors. If folks look concerned, usually for their children, we just tell them we are super heroes gearing up for the fight ;)

FIREPLAY WITH DADDY JOHN
Jul
27
7:30 PM19:30

FIREPLAY WITH DADDY JOHN

Join us for an evening with Daddy John Ryan as he lights his bottom on fire.  Fire gets a visceral reaction from many people, whether frightening, arousing, or simply a pleasurable sensation in play. John will talk about this extreme form of temperature play and show us how he uses it on many parts of his consenting play partners.  We will also hear about his introduction to BDSM, his evolution through kink and what drew him to play with fire.

Bio
Daddy John Ryan has been involved in the leather/kink scene for 20 years. He is a member of the Chicago Hellfire Club, one of the founders of the SF K9Unit, and a mentor in LDG’s mentoring program.
 
He first experienced fire play at a demo with the Brotherhood San Jose.  His fireplay style focuses on the flames, using a minimum of equipment which he feels helps develop his connection with the bottom.
 
John considers himself a caring sadist, preferring the identity of "Daddy" to "Master." Several people have said he seemed scary until they got to know him. The jury is still out on whether that is a plus or not. Helping someone explore BDSM through pain, mind trips, or lack of control, is the prime motivator in his play. He enjoys kink on a dime, glitter flogging, and beating shins with metal sticks.

Livestream for the Event

SFLDG is a 501(c)3. Your donations help us host, stream, and record programs like this every month. Please consider helping us do that. Video begins around 7:30pm Pacific.

We will have a brief "state of the union," we will honor a very special guest, and we will will also be handing some pretty stunning thank you presents to a few volunteers who have dedicated themselves to us multiple times.

We will have delicious food, soft drinks, not-so-soft drinks, and the love of our very own Leathermen's Discussion Group Community.

We hope you will join us!

Fetish Fair 2015 - Sponsored by Joe's Barbershop

Come in to our steamy dungeon filled with hot scenes we think you might not see elsewhere. But unlike a play party where you may watch but not speak, this is all about learning, so you are encouraged to chat up the Doms and their subs during and after!

Are Leather Titles Necessary? - A Panel Discussion with Race Bannon, Joe Gallagher, Eric Paul Leue and Graylin Thornton

Is a leather title necessary to take a leadership role?  What compels contestants to run?  What do we expect of titleholders and how has that changed over time? Are titleholders meeting the BDSM/Leather/Fetish community’s expectations?  Are there too many title contests?  What would the community look like without titles? 

Join us and our panelists for a conversation on these questions and more.  There will be time for Q&A, bring your questions for our panelists.  Submit question suggestions by clicking here.

Please note the new location for this program: the SF LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market Street.

KILLER AMONG US: DEPRESSION IN THE MEN'S COMMUNITY — special program

Never in our program director's memory have so many men so consistently requested a program on the same topic. The shock and sadness of a friend's or community figure's sudden suicide; the quiet shame of the heavy player nobody sees anymore, because he can't get out of bed; the retreat from the community of the guy who doesn't know how to explain, much less manage...

LOOKING FORWARD, LOOKING BACK: LDG ANNIVERSARY AND HOLIDAY PARTY — with Guy Baldwin

Please join us as we celebrate both the holiday season and the S.F. Leathermen's Discussion Group's 17th Anniversary!

Guy Baldwin, legendary leatherman, activist, educator, titleholder and friend of LDG, will join us for a conversation about the state of the men's community at the close of 2013. We'll have updates on the state of LDG from our chairman, Erik Will, and our treasurer, Eric See, along with a few surprises — but mostly we'll have music, food, fun and, we hope, you.

Our way of saying: Thank you, San Francisco perverts, kinksters, leathermen, rubbermen, fetishists and our allies, for an amazing seventeen years, and the prospect of many more.
