Nominations Open

Nominations for the Board of Directors of the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District are now open, and will remain open until July 31, 2020.

During this time, the Nominations Committee will be reaching out to our entire community to encourage individuals to nominate themselves for the three open seats, each term to last three years, starting August 19, 2020.

In order to achieve diversity and representation on our Board, we are particularly encouraging the self-nomination of individuals who represent some of these communities and constituencies:

    • Women
    • Trans, Non-Binary, and Gender Nonconforming Folks
    • People of Color
    • Kinky Heterosexuals
    • Young People
    • Traditional and Non-Traditional Families
    • Artists
    • Businesses

Directors are expected to attend monthly meetings (currently held online on the third Wednesday evenings of each month), and to take leadership roles on our various Committees (most of which also currently meet online monthly, on weekday evenings), and/or otherwise participate and support the work of the Cultural District.

You do not need to currently be a voting member of the LCD in order to nominate yourself for the Board.  (You will need to become a voting member prior to the election; note that membership dues are easily waived at this time; see for details.)

Being a Director of the Cultural District means having a voice in the future of our South of Market neighborhood:  helping it to thrive during current challenges and become the vibrant, safe, and uniquely kinky space we all love and enjoy.

You can read the Statements of Candidates who have nominated themselves here.  (Expect more to come throughout the month of July.)  

If you believe you might be a good choice as a Director, OR if you know someone you think might be, please read the details here, and use the linked forms to nominate yourself or them.
