Our Mission

DC Leather Pride will support and promote the Leather community of the DC Metropolitan Area. This will be accomplished through organizing and promoting regular social events for the Leather Community and its allies, and donating the profits of such events back into the Leather and LGBT Communities. DC Leather Pride strives to create a safe and inclusive environment for the Leather Community and its Allies, to promote and preserve the values, interests, history and culture of that community.

DC Leather Pride is a personally and sexually affirming organization. We do not discriminate based upon actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, disability, religion or affiliation.

Our Organization
From our first event held for Capital Pride weekend in 2014, we sought to be a non-profit organization building the community. Since then, we have made the organization official, incorporating in the District of Columbia, creating by-laws, and electing a board. We hold monthly planning meetings and continue to connect with other organizations as we fulfill our mission.
