Atlanta Leather Pride Is Here


Atlanta Leather Pride was founded in 2010, and since then it has only grown bigger in scope. The purpose of the Leather Pride was to find the Mr. and Ms. Atlanta Eagle, and even though the competition is still the focal point of the weekend, it has been filled with additional events. Leather Pride is also an excellent opportunity for the kink-curious to get a taste of what the Atlanta leather community has to offer in a friendly, social setting, so come out to the Atlanta Eagle one or more of the events listed below.
