Message from the Chair

Greetings!  As we say goodbye to a full summer and look forward to the start of another leather season in LA, lots of exciting changes are happening in the land of LA Leather.  To catch you up, the Los Angeles Leather Pride Committee is off and running, working hard to make our 20th Anniversary one to remember.  The Community Partners will soon be voting on the final slate of Judges for this year’s contests.

And on a broader scale, the Board of the LALC is diving deep into the language and intent of our bylaws, making edits and rewrites to better align our fundamentals with the needs of our community.  To that end, we will soon host a Values Summit, where we directly ask the question, “What does our community expect from us?”

I’m looking forward to positioning ourselves for a better, stronger future, where we continue to demonstrate the heart of Leather that is Los Angeles.  Stay tuned!

Yours in Leather,
Gus Norris
