2018 – the year so far…
June: Preparations are well underway for a number of BLP events in July. Behind the scenes the BLP committee members are hard at work organising new workshops and one of our legendary market events!
VP LadySeverine was proud to attend the Queens Ball Awards at city hall to celebrate our vibrant LGBTIQ+ community and support the many organisations, venues, activists and individuals who uphold our community.

April: President of BLP NeedleBitch hosted a fabulous tea party and scavenger hunt for littles , caregivers and fun lovers at local hotspot UrbanFetish. Highlights included crafts, educational quizzes, games and delicious fairy bread!
March: Brisbane Leather Pride delivered our “Conversations about consent workshop” to a crowd of over 50 people at UrbanFetish, and had a night of engaging, constructive and educational discussion with members of our community.
BLP Vice President LadySeverine also delivered a consent workshop discussion to the attendees of Ladies night at CrystalDungeon.
Numerous other venues will be hosting the same workshop over the coming weeks and months and all venues, clubs and groups are welcome to contact us to discuss bringing the workshop to you.

Thank you to Redgirl and the outgoing President, Labrys and former Treasurer, MissFoxy who have both volunteered their time and energy in the BLP committee since 2014. Finally, a particular thank you goes out to Miss Evil Gen who has been involved since the founding Steering Committee, prior to incorporation, and has been BLP’s Secretary and leading lady since 2014.

The 2014 Leather Pride Festival has finished, marked with our donation to QuAC’s Gender Clinic, and it is time to reflect on this, our first year organising this festival as a committee. We invite you to read the President’s message, celebrate the support of the community, and join the conversation as we turn our attention to the future.
Busily working away on our plan for Leather domination, Brisbane Leather Pride Inc is a grass roots community of volunteers from the Brisbane BDSM and Fetish scene. We are proud and excited to bring you workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions, performances, and parties celebrating your kink lifestyle. Our Festival has just ended, but we like to tease, so expect to see BLP events throughout the year.
Whether you like latex or lace, sounding or shibari, we have something to keep you spellbound – and gagged.
We held our Inaugural General Meeting in May 2014 in order to elect the Management Committee, vote on Constitution, and determine the name of our organisation. Find the details here.
