News from BLUF Local: San Francisco

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.

BLUF at the Eagle

Beginning this month, the SF Eagle Tavern is starting a monthly drag night on 3rd Saturdays, which spells the demise of BLUF INVASION 3rd Saturdays. To keep the ball rolling there's the new KONTROL event sponsored by the Eagle, which you'll want to gear up for -- though it's a different sort of thing, with "five play spaces" et al. Check it out! It debuts tonight, BUT NOTE THAT after tonight, KONTROL continues on 1st Fridays, not Saturdays. Let's continue the conversation on the BLUFsf facebook profile at https://www.facebook.com/groups/170995339630761/ or below. More as events unfold.... "

Dore Alley Dinner in San Francisco

CALLING ALL HOSTS The 5th annual BLUF Dore Alley Dinner will be held, as usual, on the Thursday before the fair. This year, that's 24 July.

JOIN THE HOST COMMITTEE Right now we're gathering visiting BLUF men to join the host committee. If you'll be in SF on the Thursday before the Fair, join us.

It's easy to host: plan to be in SF and attend the event, put your moniker on the flyer, distribute it to your geared-up friends. This is a great way to kick off your visit, meet some locals and renew old friendships. Last year we had 180 leathermen.

JOIN THE COMMITTEE Let us know you'll be in SF for the fair. Contact us here on BLUF central or by email to BLUFsf@yahoo.com. DEADLINE to get your moniker on the flyer is May 10th.

DETAILS It's on Thursday, July 24th. Cocktails from 6pm. So come early to drink and save your table. Buffet opens at 7:30pm. at Don Ramon's Mexican Restaurant. $30 CASH at the door, which includes $5 for a local charity.

GEAR BLUF gear strongly encouraged, but we're not uptight about it (especially for visiting BLUF men who don't have their full leathers). All hot fetishes welcome: BLUF regulation kit, rubber, bikers in leather, cops. etc.

Join us!
