Welcome to the San Francisco Leather Pride Contingent! We are a contingent representing the many facets of the San Francisco Bay Area’s Leather and Kink Culture. We invite all leather, kink and fetish organizations to join us on June 25th for the San Francisco Pride Parade.
The Leather Community has a proud tradition of participating in the San Francisco Pride Parade. In 1999, under the leadership of Robert Davolt we united the many groups to form the Leather Pride Contingent. People clad in leather have been in every pride celebration not only here but in almost all pride celebrations throughout the world. We walk each year to honor our brother’s and sisters that have come before us and to show the world that it is okay to be kinky, there is many of us just like you. We walk with flair, fierceness and most of all oozing with sexiness. From the whips cracking heard from blocks away and our Leather Marshals being pulled by human ponies consistently makes us one of the most recognizable groups in the SF Pride Parade.
The Leather Culture has a proud tradition of mentoriship and I personally would like to thank Jay Hemphill and Michael Holeman for theirs. It is a true honor to continue the legacy of the San Francisco Leather Pride Contingent and I look forward to seeing you all at the parade.
With Love and Leather,
