SF plans for a new Leather District

By Race Bannon (reposted from Facebook, with permission)

There is a process underway to create a city SOMA Leather District that has had one newspaper article published about it and a few small planning meetings of which I'm aware, but otherwise hasn't really made the rounds adequately (in my opinion) of all the San Francisco Leather Community stakeholders.

I'd like to see more key San Francisco leather scene representatives present at future community meetings so that the community can provide appropriate input on the creation of "our" district. This group post will likely notify many of the kinky gay men in San Francisco, but if you could reach out to the rest of the local leather community spectrum in our city within your networks about this, it would be appreciated. The SOMA Leather District could be a great thing, but we want to make sure it truly addresses the needs of our community properly.

For example, I'd love to see built into the leather district's proposal that financial and city mechanisms were put in place to properly fund a leather/kink community space we could all use. That is but one idea. The important thing is that the people at the core of this project hear from all of us in the community about what our true needs are, what historical district boundaries make sense, what community businesses and organizations it can best support, and so on.

Feel free to copy this and send it to whoever you think might want to get involved.

The next community meeting (which I sadly can't attend) information is below. I'd like to see as many people as can show up and offer their input.

Leather District Community Meeting Monday November 6th 5:30-7:30 pm The Stud (399 9th Street, SF)

Here is an article about the proposed district.
