Leather Alliance opens SOMA Educational & Social Space

The SF Bay Area Leather Alliance, an all-volunteer 501(c)3, is proud to announce the opening of “SF Catalyst”, a new community-run educational and social space in SOMA. The 2500+ sq foot space is now available for use by groups and organizations for events that are in alignment with the mission of The Alliance: to create a welcoming and supportive environment for members of the SF Bay Area Leather Fetish, Kink, & Motorcycling communities.

A primary goal of this project is to provide needed space for community organizations’ use in furthering their programs and missions. The Alliance remains committed to working with the other existing San Francisco “Leather” community spaces including the Center for Sex & Culture, Wicked Grounds, and The Citadel to ensure the long term vitality of the SF Bay Area “Leather” communities.SFCatalystMainSpace

We are currently looking for individuals who are willing to commit to being part of the ongoing volunteer team filling primary and secondary positions in the operation of this project & space. Please go to http://www.tinyurl.com/LeatherCenter to sign up or find out more.

As with all projects of the Alliance, the new space will be operated with a commitment to diversity and inclusion. We seek a broad representation of volunteers, participants, groups, kinks, ages, abilities, races and genders from our wonderful and rich SF Bay Area BDSM, leather, kink, and fetish communities to make this the best community space possible.

For more information, visit the SFCatalyst Web site, check out the Facebook or FetLife page, or subscribe to the Mailing List.

Volunteer to help out at www.tinyurl.com/LeatherCenter. Inquiries for renting the space may be sent to reservations@sfcatalyst.org. General questions regarding the project may be sent to info@leatheralliance.org.

Congratulations to Mr. San Francisco Leather 2016: Cody Elkin (Mr. Lonestar 2016)
