    SELF is excited to announce that we have been selected for the southeastern premiere of the award-winning film, By the People: 25 Years of Community Archiving at the Leather Archives and Museum. This documentary won the Best Documentary Short award at the recent Cinekink 2017 film festival in New York City, NY. 

    It's a tantalizing look at 25 years of archiving history, blazing a trail, and an archive that will serve the world for decades to come. There are sections of the film which speak specifically to southeastern history. It's an incredible opportunity.Mark your calendars now! We'll show the film directly after Friday evening's show.
    Step inside of LA&M. Step inside of kink & leather.

 Where individuality is valued. Where education is free-flowing. Where fun is abundant.

We're mixing it up and we invite you to do the same.  


What is mixology? Mixology is our theme for this year because we are the place where all facets of our community come together and generate something more than their individual pieces. We are a meeting place, a connection, and a mingling spot.

We are a gathering of joy, learning, creation, love, and compassion. We give you a place to forge and strengthen your sense of community: at home, in the region, and across the nation. We are GLBTQ, allies, alternative relations, and people pursuing free expression of our identities.

Register and experience Mixology. 


 What is SouthEast LeatherFest?

SELF is an adult educational, fundraising and social convention that supports lifestyles of consenting adults. We are four days of exploration, invigoration, and conversation.
