SF BASiL Hosts Leather Mocktail Party
SF BAY AREA SOBER in LEATHER is inviting one and all to a night of risqué entertainment, craft mocktails, delectable snacks and a silent auction as they celebrate their outgoing sober leather titleholders and welcome the appointment of Mr., Ms. and Sober Kinkster 2018.

Keep Leather Alive in SoMa!
Do you remember your first scene, the catalyst that launched you into your current
journey of sex-positive living? Butterflies in your stomach; that mix of fear and
excitement; curiosity buzzing high…those last few steps bridging your long-awaited
fantasy to the reality of here and now. Perhaps you wanted to learn more about these
fantasies and explore the depths of your Self. You probably went online in search of
community, classes, and parties. Perhaps the first event you found was not your thing,
but luckily there were other venues hosting events on the same night…and every night!
About SF Catalyst.
SF Catalyst is a community-run educational and social space in the South of Market neighborhood of San Francisco. The 2500+ sq. ft. space is available for use by groups, organizations, and individuals for events that are in alignment with the mission of The San Francisco Bay Area Leather Alliance, an all-volunteer-run non-profit organization, which is to create a welcoming and supportive environment for members of the SF Bay Area Leather, Fetish, Kink, & Motorcycling communities. The space has been through a few incarnations and has been an important part of the community for over ten years.
Why we need your help
SF Catalyst is an old space under new management. Our number one priority is to establish itself as a true home for our diverse community.
In helping us with this campaign you not only get some great perks, you’ll be helping SF Catalyst establish itself as a safe and diverse space for everyone to express their sexual freedom in a way they might not otherwise be able to in their day-to-day life.
How we are going to use your donation.
We’ve set our fundraising goal at $20,000. We believe this is what it will take to keep our space open and available to all members of our diverse community. In addition to paying the bills, the donations that we receive from you will go towards renovations and repairs such as:
- Install new emergency lighting and lit exit signs.
- Fix and upgrade current plumbing issues including adding a sink to the upstairs restroom.
- Replace the damaged wheelchair ramp and improve accessibility where possible.
- Repair and update lighting.
- Add electrical conduit throughout to clean up the hanging wires.
- Repair the broken motorized winch.
