Meet The Leather Solidarity Collective
Amid the groundswell of the George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests that rang loudly across the nation and the globe in 2020, a group of passionate folks in Leather, BDSM, and Kink Communities banded together to bring antiracist activism to our own Leather/Kink Lifestyle Community through a series of several virtual town halls—"Navigating Racism During Two Pandemics." Our 2021 efforts include a full 3-Day conference to celebrate People of Color and BIPOC Allies in Leather and Kink!
