If you have ever wanted to explore the complex leather subculture, now is the time:
Toronto Leather pride is being held from August 4th to August 11, 2013.
It begins with the Leather pride march on Sunday, August 4, 2013, which is a march held in reaction to the Church Street Fetish Fair being watered down into a family event, then subsequently csanceled when it didn't have the intended effect.
The week continues with a series of party's and workshops for those in the leather and kink culture.
Some of the workshops include:
Women in Leather: Shaping Our Own Identity
The Uncaged Puppy Play
Untangled: No-Rope Bondage
'Hit me with your Rhythm Stick!' Percussion Play 101
While the Leather community does have a large gay male following, Toronto Leather pride week is an inclusive event welcoming anyone interested in the lifestyle.
Farrell Collier is the new Mr. Leatherman Toronto 2014, Patty is the new Ms Leather Toronto 2014 and Andy Coatham is the new Mr. Rubber Toronto 2014. The competitions were held on Saturday, August 10, 2013, at the Phoenix Concert Theatre.
