2022 Southeast Womxn and Girls of Leather Gathering
25 clubs and dozens of non-affliated womxn gathered Thursday evening of SELF! The energy in the room was astounding— this was networking at it’s best where we were not mired in the problems or what might hold us back. We as a group focused on expanding our possibilities, not accepting provided answers and forging a new path. I cannot thank everyone enough who raised the bar, made space for our differences and allowed all of us to feel that we, individually, have a space.
F.I.S.T. is a leather/BDSM, service, educational, and social organization centered on women, based in Baltimore with members nationwide.

ONYX Pearls Southern Leather
Onyx Pearl Southern Leather is an organization formed on June 15, 2018 for women of color who are practitioners of the Leather/BDSM/Kink/Fetish lifestyle.

~ ~ ~11 clubs across the southeast where represented in 2017 and we had 70+ women in 2018! 2019 represented 25+ clubs from coast to coast. We are going to raise our voices again and learn from each other. We have a unique format where questions are posed each year via email. We ask you discuss the questions with your club or the group of women you hang with before you attend so you can represent the voices and opinions of those who are not able to attend. You do not need to be a member of a club to attend.
If you (that means you as a non-club affiliated woman) and/or your club would like to be a part of the gathering, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page. We will email you the focus questions for this year. Please take the questions to your club, have them discuss the questions and bring back the responses to the gathering to be shared with everyone present. Clubs will be called to share in the order that we received notification of participation.
We are inviting all womxn to attend.
Your hosts who will provide snacks and alcoholic refreshments for a comfortable livingroom atmosphere discussion among leatherwomxn.
