CHHESS Report Finished

We are delighted to have completed the Cultural History, Housing, and Economic Sustainability Strategies (CHHESS) Report of the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District.

The Report is the result of years of research and community engagement (thank you to everyone who took part in the focus groups or surveys) and work with City departments!

Come speak in favor of passage at a Board of Supervisors Committee hearing Thursday, June 13, 2024, at 10am, City Hall Room 263. We are the first agenda item. Public comment will be in-person only.

The contents of the report were presented at an open community forum on November 29.  You can view the presentation video, the presentation slideshow, or the presentation slideshow as a PDF.

Additional hearings before Committees and Agencies are expected.  Ultimately it will be presented to the SF Board of Supervisors for their approval.  If interested in attending these hearings and votes, contact manager@sflcd.org, or join the “Save SOMA Action Network”.

Volunteer Season!

The LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District always needs volunteers, but during the high season (June – September) the need is intense.

  • For Pride Sunday (June 30, 2024), we are looking for folks to carry the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District banner within the Leather Contingent.
  • We host our community’s Color Guard flags, which can include LGBTQ Pride, Leather Pride, Trans Pride, Bear Pride, Pup Pride and other flags, as well as the traditional US, State and San Francisco flags.    We hope to present most or all of those in the Pride parade.
  • Inside Leather Alley, we will host a community information table with a kinky photo booth.  This is a great, fun gig, helping folks to select props and take their selfies.  

Sign up to Volunteer for Pride Sunday!

  • Looking past Pride, we have information tables or booths at all the major events:  at the Dore, Folsom and Bearrison Street fairs, and at beer busts, art shows and other occasions.
  • Other ways to help include sitting on one of our standing Committees, or being available at short notice for special projects.

If you have even a few hours to share, please check out our Volunteer Opportunities and Signup”  page, join our Volunteer Nortification Mailing List, or write to manager@sflcd.org!
