SF Catalyst

Leather Alliance opens SOMA Educational & Social Space

The SF Bay Area Leather Alliance, an all-volunteer 501(c)3, is proud of its newest project, “SF Catalyst”, a 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.

The Alliance took over the space formerly occupied by the “Alchemy” dungeon, in order 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

SF Catalyst is continually in need of community volunteers. Folks with special skills like carpentry or Dungeon Monitor certification are welcome, but so are folks who can just be on call to help with moving chairs or emptying the trash. If you can help, please write to us at volunteer@sfcatalyst.org and tell us (a) who you are, (b) all the best ways to reach you, and (c) what you would be willing and able to help us with.

You can also help by hosting your events there!  Individuals or organizations are encouraged to use SF Catalyst for photo shoots, meetings, filming, art shows, play dates, life events, professional sessions, and all kinds of parties and gatherings. To inquire about renting the space, please check the calendar, and send your request to reservations@sfcatalyst.org

As with all projects of the Alliance, the new space is being 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.
