LeatherSex Conversations With Gary Wasdin

LeatherSex Conversations is a program of the DFA and The LGBT Community Center of the Desert that brings thought-provoking speakers from across the country to Palm Springs for intimate evenings of questions, answers, and more questions, on topics of interest to people who are a part of the Leather tradition or who are seeking to know more about this enduring aspect of the LGBT experience.

Come get your mind blown!

Friday, November 1: Join the conversation. The Center and DFA welcome Gary Wasdin, Executive Director of the Leather Archives and Museum in Chicago, Illinois. The Archives works to make leather, kink, BDSM, and fetish accessible through research, preservation, education, and community engagement.

Gary will offer his reflections on what for him, a leatherman, is the best job in the world: uncovering the artifacts and shedding light on the lives of the diverse people who together created what we refer to as Leather, and bringing that rich history to life for us today.

Friday, November 1; 7-9 pm; LGBT Center of the Desert
