Volunteers Needed for Leather Alliance Weekend

Have you been wanting to get involved with the Leather Alliance Weekend (March 2-4, 2018) but are unsure how to do that?  Volunteering is a great way to meet people, get a discount on the event, and share some of your special skills.

You do not have to be on the board nor a part of the groups that are on the board to help out. And it’s not all about the contest either! We’ll have positions available Friday – Sunday for various things.

Interested?  Visit the Volunteer Page on the Leather Alliance Weekend Website, or email weekend-chairs@leatheralliance.org with questions.

Tickets Available!

Now is the time to get your tickets to the 2018 Leather Alliance Weekend.  The Weekend runs March 2-4, 2018, and includes (as you surely know) the Mr. San Francisco Leather 2018 Contest, the San Francisco Bootblack 2018 Contest, and the San Francisco Leather Community Awards, along with parties, auctions, education, and a judicious amount of raucousness.

Full ticket details are available here, or you can go directly to the online ticket sales page, here.
