TCboL Book Club!

Hey Everyone!


We will be starting our next book club next Wednesday at TCL. The new book we chose was Urban Aborigines written by Geoff Maines.

A subculture of gay men participate in a radical form of sexuality and community known as leather. Through intimate forms of encounter, using such tools as pain-pleasure, bondage, and role-play, leather can bring a shift of conciousness and a new vision of the self. This innovative book pioneered in sensitively exploring and celebrating leathersexuality. As relevant today as when it was written 20 years ago, Urban Aboriginals is an intimate view of the gay male leather community. Within its pages, author Geoff Mains explores the spritual, sexual, emotional, cultural and physiological aspects that make this “scene” one of the most prominent yet


Hey Everyone!

The boys have been busy working on a lot of new projects over the last few months. We provided a lite discussion at the Townhouse last Wednesday. It was a great discussion with some of the Twin Cities girls of Leather joining in also. We touched on the difference of just wearing leather for the kink of it, the stand and model crowd, community acceptance, and even the titleholders.

The boys also put on a workshop on limits and negotiations this last Saturday for MN Leather Pride weekend. It was a great workshop with a great turnout.


Lastly, there were three new titles awarded to three great individuals over this past weekend at MN Leather Pride. We are proud to welcome them into the community.

Congratulations to Roman for being awarded the title of MN LeatherSir, Bolt for MN Leatherboy, and Angie for MS. MN Leather Pride!
