Palm Springs Pride

Next weekend is Palm Springs Pride and we're involved in a big way! Visit us at our booth in Fetish in the Outfield and or march with us in the parade. Read on for details!

Fetish in the Outfield 2013

Come join the second annual Palm Springs Pride Leather Realm that brings the Southern California leather communities together in one spot for an introduction into the Leather/Fetish world set within the Palm Springs Pride Festival.

Are you part of the Leather/BDSM/Fetish community or are you just curious? Enjoy educational hands-on workshops and demos. Subjects and techniques will cover the basics, as well as some of the more specialized topics and practices. All will be taught by those who are actively involved and knowledgeable in the Leather/BDSM community.

You will also have the opportunity to meet and greet past and present Mr./Ms. Leather contestants and winners from around Southern California and right here in Palm Springs.

Come out, have fun, and develop your talents in the sensual and erotic Kinky Arts!!!!

DFA Pride Parade Contingent

Come on out and march with DFA and other local fetish/affiliate groups (PSLOD, FetishMenSanDiego, Desire, Bears of Coachella Valley, and The Barracks) in this year's Palm Springs Pride Parade.

The parade will step off at 10 am on Sunday, November 3 from Baristo and Palm Canyon Drive. Once we receive our contingency number we will have a clearer idea of where we'll be in the lineup and when we will be stepping off. We should meet around 9/9:30 between Sunny Dunes and Baristo to have enough time to take pictures and mingle. Mark your calendars and let's show the community our fetish/kink spirit!

Important! The Palm Springs City Ordinance prohibiting public nudity open to view will be strictly enforced. That means no frontal nudity, jockstraps or chaps showing your bare ass are allowed.
