A Message From the Chair

posted in: LALC News | 0

Welcome to the LOS ANGELES LEATHER COALITION’S website.  Please also visit us on FaceBook and Twitter for up to the minute leather community news here in Los Angeles.

The LALC is one of the largest and most extensive umbrella organizations in the US formed in 1999 to support the activities of our many community partners and other businesses, clubs and groups which are part of the leather community in the greater Los Angeles area.  We are a California §501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation.

One of a number of events and activities of our community partners we support has been the recently concluded LOS ANGELES LEATHER PRIDE 2013 (www.laleatherpride.com), which I hope you were able to attend.  This year, our theme was TRADITION: Looking Back… Moving Forward as we honored the many past and present organizations, clubs and outstanding individuals which have helped make the legendary Los Angeles leather scene what it is today.  As part of the LA Leather Pride festivities, we held the annual Mr. LA Leather 2013 contest won by Justin Emmerick, Mr. Regiment.
Justin will be representing LA at IML in May.  We are very thankful for the many sponsors, volunteers and organizations that helped make LA Leather Pride 2013 a success and are proud that proceeds from the event will be distributed to five great charities: Being Alive LA, Project Angel Food, One National Gay and Lesbian Archive, LA Gay and Lesbian Center and the Sharon St. Cyr Foundation.

Whether you are a local or a visitor, we hope you will come for a visit and let us show you our friendly diverse and dynamic leather community!
