Welcome to BLUF Local

BLUF has members and events in many places around the world. In cities with lots of members, or dedicated teams of volunteers, you'll find BLUF Local. Our Local pages provide news and updates for people who want to know more about the leather scene in a city, and they're available to both members and non-members. If you are a BLUF member, you can join an BLUF Local, so other members can find you easily. To join a local, you need to first join BLUF, which you can do online at join.bluf.com

Like the rest of BLUF, our Locals are run by volunteers. If you'd like to get involved, contact one of the members listed for a city.
