Palm Springs Leather Pride - Flash Back Gallery

We take a look back as far as 2000 at Palm Springs Leather Pride which is produced by the Palm Springs Leather Order of the Desert. Many on the west coast consider Palm Springs Leather Pride to be the Mid Atlantic Leather of the West. Both events are produced by a club and both events are huge with the center of activities being Leather contests with a who's who of Leather in attendance. Each have food with Leather Cocktails on the Saturday night in the nation's capitol and a huge formal Leather dinner on Friday night in the California desert. Both have satellite events such as cocktail parties, bar nights, vendors. Take a look at the almost 50 photos from Palm Springs that The Leather Journal has for your pleasure. Se who you recognize. Scroll down to see.

Smokeout - 20th Anniversary

Smokeout celebrated its 20th Anniversary in Las Vegas the weekend of April 4-7 at the Alexis Park Resort and Villas. Most of the hotel was reserved for Smokeout with its cigar and pipe studs, Leatherman, bikers, bears and friends, from all over the world. Smokeout is a free-flowing weekend so everyone could enjoy Las Vegas the way they wanted. Maximus had their barber chair going, the Bullet Bar and SF Eagle hosted a play area that was busy, Rocky Mountain Rebellion supplied booze and lots of Rock and Roll music, Desert Brotherhood MC ride to Lake Mead, Cigar Poker party, bootblacks, the Chicago Hellfire Club had a Scotch and Cigar social. There were groups going to cigar shops, restaurants, shows and bars. The pool area was busy at almost all hours. Great job Bob, Shadow, Leather Uniform Club of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas boys of Leather.
