The Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District is participated in both the Oakland Trans March and the Oakland Pride Parade this year.
The inaugural Trans March Oakland was on Saturday, September 7, 2019.
The Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District had a contingent of more than 20 people when it stepped off at the 10th Annual Oakland Pride Parade, on Sunday morning, September 8, 2019, and more leather folks joined along the way.
