This workshop will discuss basic understanding of the Leather community, identifying basic needs of that community and how we as Pride organizers can understand those needs and work with leaders in the leather community. Specific points will be to discuss the history of leather culture, different personal dynamics within the community (D/s dynamics, pups, etc.), leather contests and events. The goal of this workshop will be to facilitate an open discussion among participants about how the Leather community and Pride organizers can work together to mutually benefit the larger LGBT community.
