VML (Vancouver Men in Leather)

Vancouver, Canada

In January 2004, a small group of gay men interested in leather, uniform, and fetish banded together to form a community-focused social club. These founding members have been actively involved in the local leather community for years.

Tired of not having a local place or club to meet other like-minded men (like many other cities have), these men formed Vancouver’s newest club specifically for gay leather men.

The club is dedicated to having fun, meeting new people, and learning more about the leather lifestyle. We’re offering gay men interested in leather a place to meet on a regular basis.

Gay men are seeking out places to meet one another, and Vancouver Men in Leather is happy to create that space with the great support from Numbers.

Scandinavian Leather Men Oslo was established as SLM Norway in 1976, a fetish and BDSM club for gay men, inspired by similar named clubs in Sweden and Denmark. This happened only four years after decriminalization of gay sex in Norway and shows how rapid society evolved back then.

Since 2009 SLM Oslo has had its club quarters just outside the walls of the old medieval royal castle in down town Oslo. We run our own fully licensed bar, and downstairs, in the old 17-century basement we have an intimate but well equipped play-dudgeon. The club is open one or two nights every week, for fetish club nights, or different thematic parties as fisting, rubber, sportswear, wet, bdsm and so on. Every second month we turn up the heat and invites to naked parties, which never fail to attract a large crowd. Large crowds are also to be expected at our annual birthday party; Valhall, our Halloween party; Red Devil, and during the week of Oslo Pride.

Check out our program and drop by on your next visit to one of the most exciting up and coming Cities of Europe.

As part of our mission, we work to encourage local, national and international fellowship, and we also work to foster both the unity and diversity of the leather community.

As a club, the Atons of Minneapolis host many different activities. These include monthly meetings, social events, and an annual banquet.

To encourage fellowship we hold events known as “runs.” These started as motorcycle road trips to visit members of clubs in other cities. Ours is a camp-out, to which we invite other clubs and members of the leather community from all across the nation for a weekend of fun and brotherhood. It is usually held on the third weekend of July.

The leather community is composed of unique individuals who have a wide variety of interests and desires. However, we share the common bond of our interest in leathersex and all that comes with it. The Atons reflect both the unity and diversity of the leather community, while seeking to encourage a unity within this diversity. As part of this, we sponsor a variety of fund raising events to bring the community together to express our identity and celebrate our culture. Proceeds from these events benefit both club functions and the larger gay community – including charitable organizations and AIDS services.

To ensure that we achieve our goals, we are always looking for a few good people to join us. If you would like to attend our events, or are interested in membership, please contact our

Conductors LL Club (Conductors Levi Leather Club)

Nashville, USA

The Conductors is one of the longest surviving gay social and service groups in the city, having been involved in Nashville's gay community for over 30 years.

We were established in 1982 by a group of friends who shared common interests in leather. Nashville’s gay community in the early 80’s, although thriving, was still small. Knowing that introducing leather boots, vests, and chaps into the nightlife of Nashville's bar scene was somewhat of a risk at the time, those first members recognized that it was vital for their acceptance and future to give something back to the community.
