About Sydney Leather Pride

Sydney Leather Pride came into being at the start of 1990. Its founding members were six individuals who shared a common fetish, that of leather BDSM. These six individuals came together to form what was originally known as Sydney Leather Pride Week Association.


The aims of this group at that time was a simple one, to educate and demystify the leather / BDSM lifestyle to the general community with education forums and workshops, while at the same time having fun. We currently run education workshops on a regular basis, host several smaller dance events, Leather Pride Week and our major fund raiser and demonstration of our community the Inquisition dance party.




There is plenty of room for people interested in leather or fetish to get involved. We welcome new members, volunteers and like-minded folk who simply want to meet others in a friendly social and fun environment.
