The 2017 edition of Leather Pride Amsterdam is the last weekend of October. In those three days from 271th till 29th of October, the many bars, clubs, shops, party organizers and other organizations put together a large number of activities. Think about get togethers, workshops, the election of Mister Leather or Mister Puppy. If you visit everything you can, you probably need at least a week to recuperate. We chose some noteworthy events from the large list on the Leather Pride website.
Leather Pride 2017: Political action from the community
The Leather community may not have an image of being political active, but that is quite besides the truth. Often the representatives of the Leather community are at the forefront of demonstrations, commemorations or participate in debates.
This Leather Pride the plight of gays in Chechnya takes centre stage. At the “Chechnya100 Charity Auction: Double Damage mode!” money will be collected for the to assist Rainbow Railroad and the Russian LGBTQ+ networks to help these men to safety. It takes about €6000,- a person to get them to safety. So money is a key part in saving them.
At this auction items from current national and international titleholders from the leather scene will be auctioned. The items auctioned can be anything from a used jockstrap to collector’s items, or maybe even an unforgettable coffee with a titleholder.
MrB has agreed to double the accumulated donations until €3.000,- and urge everyone to contribute to the best of their ability.

Leather outfits on the cheap
Queens, also leather queens, like to shop and to look out for a sale. Especially for people who love to wear leather clothing, that can be important.
