There are many boys of Leather groups that have existed for quite some years now, including those from Denver, D.C., Phoenix, Jersey, New York, Windy City, South Florida, San Francisco , Keystone, Houston, Central Texas, Kansas City (rebuilding) and the newest Albuquerque founded by boy Leon! They boast of brotherhood, the Leather boy heart and amazing events put on by and volunteered for by these groups.
Then there is the sisterhood; there seems to be a passionate interest in the Leather Women’s community for more unity and closer bond sharing. There are many contests, a few conferences, and women’s groups that are very much catered to Leatherwomen including: Desire, Women’s International Leather Fest, International Ms Leather (IMsL), Bound By Desire, F.I.S.T and Exiles to name a few. The flames of diversity amongst Leatherwomen in the community are bold, very strong and grow bigger as the years flicker by.
