Leathermen's Discussion Group

The Leathermen’s Discussion Group (LDG) is a place for self-identified GBT2Q men who have an interest in leather, fetish or kink sexual practices.

The discussion group meets on monthly basis and the discussions cover a wide range of sexuality, community, and personal growth topics ranging from BDSM technique, health and safety, relationships, fantasies, spirituality, stereotypes to possibly any topic related to the leather/kink/fetish communities. The Group is committed to building a stronger sense of community through serving the educational needs of GBT2Q Men.

You can find a calendar of upcoming LDG meetings here.
