LeatherWalk returns this year as the traditional launch to San Francisco’s Leather Week. Proudly produced by the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District, on Sunday, September 19, we will walk together starting at City Hall, pausing at favorite neighborhood spots and watering holes, and culminating with the Leather Pride Fest, presented by the SF Eagle, at Eagle Plaza.

LeatherWalk 2021 benefits the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District, a community institution dedicated to keeping our South of Market neighborhood queer and kinky. The money raised supports the Cultural District’s work, including murals, commemorative sidewalk plaques, promoting our existing businesses, facilitating new ones, activating art and live events both indoors and out and making long-term plans to buy a building for a Leather Community Center.

A vehicle will be available for participants who cannot walk any or all of the 1.25 route. Persons needing the vehicle are asked to notify in advance, as capacity may be limited. The vehicle cannot accommodate wheelchairs, but wheelchair users are welcome to participate.

Please bring proof of vaccination and mask. Show proof of vaccination at City Hall check-in to receive special wrist band for rapid entry into venues during the Walk.
