After the huge success of Leather Pride Week and Inquisition 19, SLPA are looking towards the future and we want your say.

All Leather Pride Week events were well attended and Inquisition had its highest attendance in several years, filling The Dome with scantily-clad leather men, women and perverts.

Leather Pride Week’s success proved there are still plenty of people out there who love leather and kink in their life, whether for fashion, filth or both.

Stepping back after this success, the committee figured it was time to check in.

Sydney Leather Pride is a perverse rollercoaster that has been running for well over 20 years and every so often we like to hear from the filth that is strapped in for the ride. Whether strapped to the fucking machine, cuffed to the sling, tied to the A-frame, welding the flogger or shining the needle in the light waiting to pierce some supple flesh, we want your opinion.

The SLPA committee wants to hear what you love, what you hate, what you’re gagging for more of and what your content with receiving good, hard and proper.

SLPA wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the amazing support and comradeship within our close-knit community, and to maintain this we need to grind as close to your needs as possible.

When I first stepped onto the scene it was daunting, so one thing in the coming year we want to do is open to doors and gently guide some fresh meat in and introduce them to a world that only some dream about, where filth is fun and perverts are plenty. If you have ventured out to Dog Tag or one of our events with wide eyes this year, we want to hear your voice.

Just as important, if not more, we want to hear what our members want. Whether a newbie or a member from the very beginning, we want you all to get as much out of SLPA as possible, so we can continue to grow and move forward in a positive manner.

Jump on www.sydneyleatherpride.org to fill out the survey and enter the draw to win a pass to our CARNAL party in October and our XXXmas cocktail.

In the meantime, head to SLPA Dog Tag on the first Friday of every month.

This month our DJ is Craig McKellar on September 2, at The Underground, in The Oxford Hotel.
