>NYC Leather Pride is here!

>We’ve been resting up for weeks in preparation for this one…

Leather Pride Night, always a colorful coming together of NYC’s S/M, leather and fetish communities, will again feature veteran auctioneer, Jo Arnone, presiding over an array of items to include leather and latex fetish clothing, unique toys and equipment, art objects, Broadway theater tickets and … CineKink festival passes! Making the auction and festivities all the better, this year’s beneficiaries are The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, God’s Love We Deliver, Ali Forney Center, Leather Archives & Museum and Heritage of Pride. For more info.

Then, don’t sleep in too late, as over 10,000 leather men and women take to the streets for Folsom Street East, the largest outdoor festival of its kind on the East Coast. Featuring, once again – CineKink t-shirts! – this humongous S/M-leather-fetish block party takes place Sunday, June 17th from 2-8 pm on West 28th Street (between 10th and 11th). Stop by the CineKink table and say hello! For more info.

The Pioneer Theater and CineKink team up to present another evening of kinky movies, pizza and beer. This month, we celebrate Leather Pride with a program that includes:

Original Pride: The Satyrs Motorcycle Club
(Directed by Scott Bloom, 2005, USA, 56 minutes)
One of the first gay men’s social organizations ever, The Satyrs Motorcycle Club was formed in 1954 and lives on as a vital group of Harley-riding, bearded and leather-clad men-loving men. This documentary is a journey back to that illustrious start, and then a trip of the present-day, a visit with the group at their annual outing in a remote Northern California location. Plays with the short, PISSIES NOT SISSIES, a first-hand account of the jovial goings-on in the men’s room at a renowned international leather contest. (Charles Lum, 2005, USA, 14 minutes)

A beer and pizza reception follows the screening for all ticket holders.
