Welcome to the home of BLUF, the Breeches and Leather Uniform Fan Club. BLUF is a club for men who enjoy wearing breeches and leather uniforms. Founded in 1997, there are now over 4,000 members worldwide, and many of them meet in person at BLUF events.
On the BLUF menu, you can find out more about the club. The Community menu has our calendar of events and blog, while on the Info menu you can find many useful resources, including other clubs, vendors and venues around the world.
BLUF is one of the world's biggest communities for men into leather uniforms, with members in dozens of countries and around 100 events every year. Joining BLUF gives you access to our whole site, where you can meet other guys seriously into leather, create a profile, and become part of our community. We maintain a strict dresscode, which you can read about here.
Joining BLUF is free and open to men who meet our dresscode requirements. The site is run by volunteers, and owned by BLUF Ltd, a not-for-profit company based in the UK.
Following a rather long hiatus due to the pandemic, Minneapolis BLUF socials will be back this Fall! Look for event announcements. In the meantime, if in Minneapolis, join your fellow leather enthusiasts and kinksters at the monthly Tank event at the Saloon (third Friday of the month.)
Following a long pause from gatherings because of the pandemic, BLUF Minneapolis is excited to return to enjoying time together. Friday, September 23, we will be hosting a cigar social to help kick-off Twin Cities Leather weekend (TCL Weekend).
The cities of Minneapolis/St Paul are known as the "Twin Cities," and TCL Weekend is one of our premier leather contest and events. On that weekend, leatherfolk from all over the Upper Midwest of the US come to the Twin Cities for a fantastic social time that includes gear nights, demos, socials and the Mr. TCL title contest.
BLUF Minneapolis will be sponsoring the Friday Cigar and Boots social at The Saloon. It will be the perfect evening to meet new BLUF friends, reconnect with old ones, and spend a relaxing time before the busier gear night that follows.
BLUF Minneapolis Cigar Social Friday, September 23, 20H US-CST. The Saloon, 830 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403
We noted with concern the events that happened at Touché's recent anniversary earlier this month, and the initial response of the bar management.
We had initially intended to make a statement after the proposed community meeting, but since that has yet to take place, and in view of a previously scheduled BLUF night on 19th November at Touché, we feel it necessary to make our position clear.
Touché has been home to our events for many years; it has been an important place for many leather and fetish people over the years. However, that does not grant anyone a free pass.
We don't believe that performances like that at Touché help to create a welcoming environment for the whole community. People are entitled not just to be safe, but to have legitimate concerns taken seriously, rather than being dismissed.
To hold BLUF events in a space that some of our members feel is unwelcoming for them is not acceptable.
The leather and fetish communities have changed tremendously over the 25 years since BLUF was founded. Sometimes that change has been…
BLUF's website isn't just for our members. You'll find plenty of information available to non-members too, including our listings of leather and fetish vendors, leather venues, and local leather clubs, around the world.
The BLUF events calendar features events worldwide, organised by a wide range of clubs and other groups, and as well as BLUF topics, our blog often includes posts of general interest to the leather community.
Members of BLUF also have access to our online magazine, which includes reports from BLUF events, exclusive photo galleries, and even short stories written by other members. The member forum provides places to share tips or ask for help on a range of topics, incuding For Sale and Wanted sections, travel advice and more.
On your BLUF profile, you can even let people know if you have a guest room, or can show them round your city, and our sophisticated search tools can help you find a bed in a city, or even someone who's into the same things as you, with a playroom, who rides a bike and speaks German.
We're committed to keeping BLUF membership free, with all members getting all the functions of the site. BLUF is funded by donations and sales of BLUF merchandise. Members who donate to BLUF qualify for the BLUF card, which gives discounts at a range of vendors, including Boxer, Clone Zone, Fetish Freak, Mister B and Regulation.
