PHILADELPHIA LEATHER PRIDE NIGHT
Join us for our 8th annual Philadelphia Leather Pride Night…. winner of the 2012 Pantheon of Leather Event of the Year and the 2014 large event of the year with the producing of the Philadelphia Leather Leadership Conference. Our evening will once again take place inside Voyeur Nightclub. Returning for her 8th year is our million dollar auctioneer Jo Arnone. With her booming voice we have been able to raise and donate out over $70,000 to our charities.
Our live auction consists of items across the spectrum…everything from Opera tickets, event passes, leather and fetish clothing, adult themed toys, equipment, books, art, jewelry and always a few special surprise items.
Our silent auction will be run by Philadelphia’s longest running munch, The Gate. Sir Kim will be our lead bootblack this year as well as hosting our annual cigar party during the pre-event show on St James Street.
Each year we bring in a a guest Emcee for the event. This year is no different. Traveling from Cape Town South Africa our 2016 Emcee is Jaco Lourens, Mr SA Leather 2009. In the past we’ve had Jill Carter, Jeffrey Payne, Sir JR, Mistress Sandra and her baby girl, and Karen Ultra…..
We bring in entertainment every year to make the night magical.
