Share Your Story

Our 2015 Minnesota Leather Pride theme was "American Leather Story," and that inspired us to invite members of the Kink, BDSM, and Leather communities to share your stories with us.

So many of the stories from the lives of our people have been lost to us, so now we want to collect what you have to say about your experience. Maybe it's about how you discovered your favorite kink, maybe it's a great scene you were part of, maybe it's the first piece of leather, gear or toy you experienced.

Our first goal is to collect your story. If you allow, we would like to post some of these stories through www.mnleatherpride.org, and to share these stores with the Leather Archives & Museum. We are happy to receive your story in text, photos, audio, or video.
