LeatherWalk 2023

September 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm PDT

LeatherWalk is the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District’s annual SOMA celebration and march.

We walk together to celebrate leather, kink, family and community — all while raising funds for the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District. LeatherWalk Kinky Boot Award to top fundraiser.

Participation is free, optional donations support the Cultural District’s work to keep SOMA kinky & queer. It’s fun, the visibility is politically important, and a great way to enjoy the neighborhood! Organizations are invited to bring their banners and insignia. Self-expression is encouraged whether leather, fetish gear, or skin.

We will start walking at City Hall, pausing for entertainment and beverages, at favorite SOMA venues including:

– Oasis
– Powerhouse
– Hole in the Wall
– Azúcar Lounge
– Folsom Street Community Center
– Leather Etc.
– Mr. S Leather
– Lone Star Saloon

We will reflect on our community’s origins at the Blessing of the Leathers at the Ringold Leather History Alley, and end at Eagle Plaza, to raise the Leather Pride Flag, as part of SF Eagle Bar’s Leather Pride Festival.

LeatherWalk 2023 benefits the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District, keeping our SOMA neighborhood kinky and queer.

All are welcome to join the walk. Find more information and donate or create your own personal fundraiser campaign for LeatherWalk 2023 at
