Leather H.E.A.T. was born from a passion for Leather, the Master/slave lifestyle and desire to see unity and inclusiveness in the Southern California Region. We have a large and vibrant Leather and BDSM community here in Southern California with an influx of new people seeking education and community.
Our hope is to see the diversity of our people from across the country gather together with banners leading the way of all the different tribes. Men, Women, Straight, Gay, Bi, Trans and every identification in between, we seek to come together as one, because what we have in common is so much greater and special than our different social classifications. Leather H.E.A.T. will be a place of Leather unity, a place of learning and a theater to celebrate and honor who we are; Leathermen and Leatherwomen.
We have assembled some of the finest presenters from across the country who will share their knowledge and guidance. We are grateful to each of these Leathermen and Leatherwomen who have answered the call to be a part of this amazing conference and bring the collective us to the next level in our journey.
An opportunity to meet and learn from these giants of the Leather world does not come around often, and we invite you to come join us!–Leather Heat Producers
Tom of Finland Exhibit
In 1984, the nonprofit Tom of Finland Foundation was established by Durk Dehner and his friend Touko Laaksonen a.k.a. Tom of Finland. As Tom had established worldwide recognition as the master of homo-erotic art, the Foundation’s original purpose was to preserve his vast catalog of work. Today the Foundation continues in its efforts of educating the public as to the cultural merits of erotic art and in promoting healthier, more tolerant attitudes about sexuality.
