Mates Leather Weekend

While the official Mates Leather Weekend scheduled for the first weekend of October had been cancelled, a group of friends got together for a Mini Mates Leather Weekend at the Watership Inn in Provincetown, MA. Scroll down to see our Flash Back gallery of Mates Leather Weekends of the past. The event has raised approximately $75,000 for the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod since it was founded in 2000. Mates Leather Weekend is a kick-back, have a good time, meet some hot new friends weekend for those who want to hang out, socialize, relax or party with other like-minded people in Leather, Rubber and Uniforms. Mates Leather Weekend is produced by Rick Conley, longtime Provincetown resident and Leatherman. "I want to thank all MLW sponsors, friends and past participants who have contributed to the success of Mates Leather Weekend. I’m grateful for all the new friends that I’ve made along the way." While it is sad that Mates Leather Weekend was cancelled, Snowbound Leather Weekend XIV is still planned for February 19-21.
