CHARITY AUCTION and FASHION SHOW FOLLOWED BY DANCE PARTY

Join us for our 11th annual Philadelphia Leather Pride Night…. winner of the 2012 Pantheon of Leather Event of the Year and producer of the 2014 Leather Leadership Conference. Our evening will once again take place inside Voyeur Nightclub located in the heart of Philadelphia’s gayborhood at 1221 Saint James Street. Returning for her 11th year is our million dollar auctioneer Jo Arnone. With her booming voice we have been able to raise and donate out over $95,000 for 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.
Bootblacking will be available all night on our main floor with local and regional talent.
Early in the night we have our traditional Intimate Conversation With… this year we are honored to have JoAnn Wadsworth as our featured guest.
Jo Ann Wadsworth, aka Mama Jo Ann, has been in the greater kink community since 1994. In June 1996, she became the first female Full Member of the Philadelphians M.C., which is a gay men’s leather club in Philly. She is Ms Philadelphia Leather 2000. She is currently the Captain (President) of the Philadelphians, and is an Associate Member of many other leather clubs. She was a Diabolique Board Member from 2000 to 2007, and has volunteered at Santa Saturday since 2005.
Jo Ann has identified as a bi-sexual Top since 1994. Her journey in the Leather lifestyle was not without its difficulties in the beginning, but it is one she is very proud of. In addition to continual education and self-discovery, she believes that integrity and respect for others, no matter how they identify, is of prime importance.
Come learn about JoAnn’s history and have a chance to mingle with her and others in Voyeur’s VIP Room! Complimentary refreshments will be provided for those that attend and of course the bar will be open!
We are also changing things up again this year and adding a dance party to the mix. Whether you received your first piece of leather last week or 40+ years ago be proud of where you came from. For those that don’t wear leather come have some fun in an environment that is acceptable for all of us, for together we stand strong. What a great way to blow off some steam and embrace the diversity our community brings.
Did we mention every year we offer Free Pizza during the night as well?? Also don’t forget the Cigar Party!
