The 26th annual Leather Pride Night Auction will take place on Saturday, June 20th, 2009. This year the festivities will be at Splash! at 50 W. 17th Street. SPLASH!’s doors will open for LPN at 6:00 PM, and the auction will run from 7 PM until 10:00 PM.
Leather Pride Night is sponsored by nine NYC S/m-leather-fetish organizations: Gay Male S/M Activists, Iron Guard BC, Lesbian Sex Mafia, MAsT Metro NY, MetroBearsNY, New York boys of Leather, OnyxNY, Pariah’s MC, The Eulenspiegel Society and many committed individuals. We’re also joined by the Imperial Court of NY.
This year, Leather Pride Night will donate the 2009 Auction proceeds to: Carmen’s Place, National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, By The Grace of George The Pitbull Angel Fund, and as is customary, an annual donation to Heritage of Pride, the producer of New York’s annual Pride March.
Tickets for Leather Pride Night are $15 in advance, and $20 at the door. Because this is a fundraiser, everybody pays (even me and the other committee members). If you need a scholarship, let me know and I will give you a ticket at no cost.
Most volunteer slots are only one hour which is a short time for a four hour event. Volunteering enhances your experience of LPN ands gives you a chance to be part of the action and to meet people. In addition, this year, all volunteers will receive an LPN 2009 Volunteer cloisonne pin. These pins are earned, not sold. A real status symbol!
