Upcoming 15 Association Events

Get out and play with your brothers! Mark your calendars for these upcoming 15 Association Play (and other) Events:

Message from the Chairman

I usually don’t comment about the state of society outside of the leather/kink scene, but I feel moved to talk about what’s going on in the street right now.

I imagine that every brother in our club, including myself, abhors police violence. Our community has had a long history of being on the receiving end of violence and extortion at the hands of law enforcement, which is why I am so powerfully moved by the outpouring of action and defiance on the streets of our cities right now. I am reminded of Stonewall, The Black Cat protests, and Compton’s Cafeteria.

We need to imagine a better way forward. A way where authorities don’t cut short black and brown lives. Our community has been an integral part of this fight for a long time. We’ve protested, lobbied, built our own self-defense and safety patrols when no one else would. And we’ve also joined the police forces to reform and enlighten from within.

On this Pride month, let’s imagine a better tomorrow, celebrate our connections as leathermen, and stay safe and in good health.

Party News

Our next virtual party will be on June 20th from 5pm-8pm PST. We’ve had a lot of success with our virtual parties so far, and we will continue them until such time as we can venture out and see each other again. To get the Zoom invite, simply log into the website at 15sf.org and it should be at top of the screen. The Zoom invite will be there on the day of the party, since you don’t need to log in before-hand. As always please don’t share the login with those outside of the club. We have a system for inviting people into our parties.

As we learn how to interact with this new technology, remember to show us all your kinky self. Dress up, bring toys to show off, have a tasty beverage, or smoke a cigar...and practice good online etiquette: mute your microphone if there’s a lot of unintended noise, keep any overt sexual activity to the fun room, and be respectful of others. See you there!
