You are cordially invited and encouraged to join any of the active Committees of the Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District:
- Outreach Committee, chaired by Steve Gaynes and David Hyman
- Governance Committee, chaired by Rand Hunt
- Land Use Committee, chaired by Dahn Van Laarz
- Finance Committee, chaired by Pat Collins, Lex King and Jonathan Schroder
- Legislative Committee, chaired by Bob Goldfarb
We also plan to have three “Stakeholder Committees”.
- Nightlife Committee
- Business Committee
- Organizations Committee
There will also be a Nominating Committee, to help us with the process of electing our first Board of Directors.
All of these committees will be active, important, and fun. Special expertise and relevant experience and skills are welcome, but they are not required. What is more important is that you represent our community with common sense and a sincere desire to help.
Your time commitment need not be great — even just a couple of hours per month could be enough. But the role and responsibility you will have in guiding our group will be critically valuable, and much appreciated.
For these Committees– as for all our District’s work — getting a diverse cross-section of our kinky and queer communities to join in is important. Please help us make sure that we reflect and respond to your interests — as an individual, and as a representative of other trans folks, younger folks, non-binary folks, POCs, or any other element of our broad and beautiful L&LGBTQ spectrum.
You can join any of these Committees most easily by clicking on the words “update your preferences” at the very bottom of any “Mailchimp” email message you get from us. If you are NOT currently receiving those emails, you can sign up at http://eepurl.com/djdUyf, and indicate your committee interests at the same time.
You can also sign up for Committees at any of our open Community Meetings. Or write to the our group’s Chairperson, Robert Goldfarb, for more information.
All our meetings are free and open to all. Unless otherwise announced, our meetings are held at SF Catalyst, 1060 Folsom Street (between 6th and 7th Streets), San Francisco, CA 94103.
For most meetings, ASL interpreters and/or wheelchair access will be provided if requested at least two days in advance. Please send requests to the Committee Chair, or LCD@hellobob.net.
Committee members are encouraged to sign up for an “@sflcd.org” email address. You can choose to use this for actual email or not, but having the account will allow you to access Committee documents on our new Google Drive, and participate in Committee discussions using Google Hangouts Chat (“@Chat”). To get an account, please write to Dahn@sflcd.org and he will be in touch to get you set up.
