The Atons of Minneapolis , founded in 1972, is one of the nation's oldest active gay men's Leather / Levi social fraternity. We are dedicated to promoting a positive image of our lifestyle through our various social activities. As part of our mission, we work to encourage local, national and international fellowship. We also work to foster both the unity and diversity of the leather community.
The focus of the Knights of Leather is the promotion and practice of the safe sane and consensual play for people involved the leather and BDSM lifestyles. We host dungeon parties, an annual SM recreational/educational weekend run known as Tournament; and we are also involved in various community educational out-reach programs and events. We attend events and runs sponsored by other organizations to support their efforts and stay in touch with other BDSM communities.
We host workshops and demonstrations, participate in fundraising projects relevant to the community, serve on boards and committees for the leather community (e.g. MN Leather Pride Committee) and attend and support MN Leather Pride celebrations.
The Knights of Leather are also Coalition members of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF)! KOL supports the NCSF's committment to "creating a political, legal, and social environment in the United States that advances equal rights of consenting adults who practice forms of alternative sexual expression.
