We may not be able to get together to dance at this time, but we can still dance together.  At the same time.  Socially distanced but in synch.  Join us on the Zoom video conference system — install it on your phone, tablet, or laptop (it’s free), call into the “meeting”, and set your device where you can see other people dancing.  (You may also be able to cast to a TV and set your device in front of it.)  Jim will DJ a bunch of our Tuesday night favorites, and we can all dance — or have a beverage and just watch, and use Zoom’s chat feature.  We will also try to add a lesson into the mix.  A 6x6 space would be best, but you may be able to work with a smaller space than that.  (NOTE: if you will be dancing on carpet, you’ve got to have slick-soled shoes or you might hurt your knees or ankles.  It’s a lot different from dancing on a wood floor.)
Here is the link to the meeting. Go into Gallery Mode so you can see everyone who is in the meeting. Oh, and be sure to Start Video so we can see you, too.

Being a little, middle, or Big has many paths just like any other part of our identity.  Sometimes your little self might want to be ravaged, used, fucked, and bruised.  Your Big self might want to give stickers to your little one after they’ve taken the biggest butt plug for you.  Maybe your middle side likes to punish your Big for being bossy.  In this class we’re going to go over taboo, acceptance, negotiation, safety risk assessments, and how to incorporate dark age play into your scenes/dynamics.   Presented by Bri Burning, International Person of Leather 2020.  Zoom and Ticket links will be coming TBD!

QueerPDX Queer Munch
Radio Room (1101 NE Alberta, Portland), 6:00–8:00 pm
This munch is for anyone who identifies as queer and their partners.  By queer, we mean gay men, lesbians, fags, dykes, bisexuals, pansexuals, and polysexuals along with transfolk, those who are genderqueer, gender flexible, gender fluid, and gender fuckers.  If the word queer feels like home for part of you or all of you, you are welcome.  And when we say “partner” , we mean everything from play partners to life partners.  The Portland Queer Munch will happen every month on the first or second Thursday (depending on scheduling options).
The space is wheelchair accessible and the menu has lots of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options (and all clearly labeled!).  There is plenty of free street parking and the 72 bus will drop you off within a block of The Radio Room.  The munch will meet on the main floor instead of in the lounge areas so that we won’t be limited to 21+.  This does mean that we can’t be too demonstrative about our kink so as not to scare off their other patrons, but the venue is completely aware of what our group is about and is happy to have us there!  Please buy something to support the venue so that they’ll keep having us back.  They do know that not everyone will be ordering food/eating full meals, but please do get a drink or a snack.  Bottomless coffee is $2, and an order of fries is $3, to give you an idea of the prices.

Cuff Complex (1533 13th Ave., Seattle), 5:00–7:00 pm (social) 7:00–8:00 pm (meeting)
Seattle Women in Leather is committed to education, mentorship, and involvement throughout the community at large.  We are focused on building and strengthening the women’s community through camaraderie and charitable actions.  We are an inclusive, safe space for individuals to express themselves in a positive manner through substantial service.  Outside food is allowed, but outside beverages are not.
WorkshopSome of the Demos!
Private location in Seattle, 7:00–8:30 pm / $15 (buy in advance)
Presented by Max.  This is a highly interactive event, mostly comprised of demos on attendee volunteers.  It provides a safe and informal space to observe, experience, learn, and discuss a number of kink activities.  After a brief introduction covering scene dynamics, negotiation and safety, volunteers have opportunities to bottom to Max for demos which may include:
• Rope bondage
• Electrical toys — violet wands, TENS/ErosTek, stun guns and zappers
• Needles / temporary piercing
• Pressure points
• Floggers
• Singletail whips
• Canes
• D/S and service dynamics
• Leather & metal bondage (including hoods)
• Cages
• Erotic hypnosis
Each demo will include some time for a debrief and Q&A.  This is a great workshop for anyone curious about kink, as it’s an unusual opportunity to see many different types of play up close and personal.  It’s also valuable for more experienced kinksters who would like to see a professional demonstration.  And it’s a great opportunity to meet Max and to do a demo scene with him, of course.  This workshop assumes no previous experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations.  You can bring a partner or a group of friends, but coming alone is completely comfortable and appropriate.  If you miss this workshop or want a deeper experience, Max also offers private instruction for bondage and many other BDSM techniques.  Class size is limited and preregistration is required.
This is an online event, modeled after the highly successful All The Demos event that has been running since 2014.   Max will have demo partners on-site, and you get to watch, learn, and interact remotely. Online event information will be shared with registered attendees.

Join folks from the local kink and leather communities as we gather together for some great conversation over a glass of your favorite beverage or a hot slice of pizza.  Meet new folks, catch up with old friends, share information, techniques, skills, and the like.  This open event is a great way to find out about local events, parties, or to just grow your own personal network.  No guided discussions, no presentations, just relaxed conversation with some great folks.  This event is held twice monthly, on the 2nd and 4th thursdays, at one of Tacoma’s favorite pizza joints, Puget Sound Pizza.  While it is open to the public, we tend to take over the entire lower bar.  Dress is casual public.  Eating dinner is not required and tips are appreciated.  NOTE: This is an 18+ event and not a topic discussion group.  If this is your first time attending please say hello to our host Sir Doug so that he can properly welcome you!  If you don’t see Sir Doug around, please introduce yourself to any of the SSLA Members in attendance (we are usually wearing a leather vest with a SSLA patch on the back) or our surrogate co-host, Maxx who also hosts the Kinky Cocktails & Karaoke afterwards.  We want to have the opportunity to say hello, welcome you, and answer any questions that you might have!

Cuff Complex (1533 13th Ave., Seattle), 7:00–10:00 pm
This woman-centric event puts queer leather women to the front!  Women need a place that can be uplifting and empowering to them and now we have it!  If you are a queer woman and enjoy spending time with other queer women, you and your queer guests are welcome.  Invited guests do not need to identify as women but must attend with women.  Many of us want a women’s space that simultaneously is for us while allowing space for those we care about.  Above all else, this is a space for and by queer women.  While that includes allowing space for the partners and close friends of women, please be respectful of the women-centric nature of the space.  While this event can run past 11:00 pm, the atmosphere can switch on weekends and we may not be able to maintain a woman-centric space later in the evening.  As this monthly event grows, we will have the opportunity to provide space for queer women’s organizations and events to host each month’s social, increasing awareness of events and spaces that might be unknown but of interest to leather women while providing opportunities to expand, fundraise, and have fun!  If you are interested in hosting a monthly social and are a club, organization, or event focused on women in the LGBTQ+ and leather communities, please reach out!  We would love to share space with you!

1) Please wear bar-friendly gear.  Tail plugs are ok.
2) This will be a strictly 18+ event.
3) Please refrain from heavier BDSM and sexual play.  While we are all adults, not everyone is comfortable seeing that and you never know who may be tuning in on their lunch break.  Fetish gear, restraints, and light play are okay.
4) While we love squeaky toys and barks and howls, please be mindful of getting them too close to your mics.

Your Space, 7:00–9:00 pm with lesson @ 7:30 pm
Lessons: TBD / Instructor: TBD / DJ: Jim
Line Dance Step Sheets and Videos: http://www.copperknob.co.uk/stepsheets/TBD.aspx
We may not be able to get together to dance at this time, but we can still dance together.  At the same time.  Socially distanced but in synch.  Join us on the Zoom video conference system — install it on your phone, tablet, or laptop (it’s free), call into the “meeting”, and set your device where you can see other people dancing.  (You may also be able to cast to a TV and set your device in front of it.)  Jim will DJ a bunch of our Tuesday night favorites, and we can all dance — or have a beverage and just watch, and use Zoom’s chat feature.  We will also try to add a lesson into the mix.  A 6x6 space would be best, but you may be able to work with a smaller space than that.  (NOTE: if you will be dancing on carpet, you’ve got to have slick-soled shoes or you might hurt your knees or ankles.  It’s a lot different from dancing on a wood floor.)
Here is the link to the meeting. Go into Gallery Mode so you can see everyone who is in the meeting. Oh, and be sure to Start Video so we can see you, too.

Leather Flag line
This information is aimed especially at the Seattle gay male leather community.  Some events are included which might be seen as non-gay, non-male, and/or non-leather; they are included due to the perceived breadth of people who may visit this web page and the crossover nature of events of those types with the gay male leather community.
About Out-of-Town Events: These events are listed below a green line for each date, and include both events throughout the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia) and larger-scope national events (especially those which will be attended by some members of Seattle Men in Leather).  For out-of-Seattle events, we typically only list the most prominent ones (socials, board meetings, and the like).  Activity listings for those groups and those regions may provide a broader listings of events.
About Bear, Rodeo, CW Dance, etc., Events: As above, we pick and choose which of these events to include.  All Seattle-area events are included, but only prominent regional and national events are listed.  (As a rule of thumb, we list board meetings and events at leather bars, but not munches, non-leather dances, etc.)  Activity listings for those groups and those regions may provide a broader listings of events.
About Pansexual and Workshop Events: Also included in the calendar are a selection of events primarily aimed at the kinky straight or pansexual community, but appropriate for or welcoming of gay male (and GLBTQ) leatherfolk. Typically, these are workshops which are not specifically heterosexually themed, but a fewplay parties and weekend events are also included where appropriate. Keeping in mind the gay male leather intent behind this calendar, we list events which have an obvious attraction for and are clearly welcoming of the gay male leather crowd.  (Many “pansexual” events really have nothing to recommend them to gay male leatherfolk: we might not be turned away, but why would we attend?)  Decisions about what to list are informed by the text and imagery of websites and event announcements; if you feel that your event truly should be of interest to gay male leatherfolk and is not currently being listed, please contact us (and check the text and imagery you make available).
Leather Flag line
Send your event details to us. We will try to list all leather/fetish events expected to be of interest to the GLBTQ leather community, including both one-time events and recurring ones.  Include the event name, date, time, location, cost for the event, and contact info, plus a short description if available.  Deadline for sending items to be included in the weekly e-mail version of the calendar is Monday at 6:00 pm (Pacific time).  Items and corrections provided at other times will be inserted into the online calendar as they are received (and as we have time).
Disclaimer #1: SoundsKinky is not responsible for either the events listed here nor for the accuracy of the information included.  We apologize if we fail to include your event, but we’re only human.  Sometimes events, vacations, work, and life get in the way.  And you darn well better get it to us before the deadline if you want it in the listings!
Disclaimer #2: Seattle Men in Leather (SML) includes events from other organizations on this list as a service to the community.  Only events which are specifically hosted by Seattle Men in Leather qualify for the SML activity rewards program.
