Once again, National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) will be a beneficiary of both Leather Pride Night (LPN) auction and Folsom Street East (FSE) street fair in New York City during Leather Pride Weekend in June. NCSF staff members will be present to proudly represent NCSF at both of these outstanding community events:
The 27th annual Leather Pride Night Auction will take place on Saturday, June 19th, 2010 at Splash! from 6-10 PM. Leather Pride Night is sponsored by nine NYC S&M-leather- fetish organizations: Imperial Court of New York, Iron Guard BC, Lesbian Sex Mafia, MAsT Metro NY, MetroBearsNY, New York boys of Leather, Pariah's MC, The Eulenspiegel Society, ONYX New York and many other committed individuals.

On Sunday, June 20th, Folsom Street East will be running an SM-leather-fetish block party on West 28th Street (between 10th and 11th Avenues) in front of M2 and the Eagle NYC Bar from 2-8pm. Over 10,000 leathermen and women cap off Leather Pride Weekend with the largest outdoor festival of its kind on the East Coast. Visit the NCSF table to find out more about NCSF projects and programs.

This year, NCSF's Spokesperson and Founder Susan Wright will be awarded FSE's Sexual Freedom Award during the street fair. In addition to establishing the group in 1997, Susan was also instrumental in reforming the National Organization for Women's anti-SM policy in 1999, and created the SM vs. Abuse policy statement through the Leather Leadership Conference in 1997-98. Susan is a member of the organizing committees for Smarter Sex NYC, the Sex Positive Journalism Awards, and the advocacy committee for the American Association for Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists. She has also published over 25 books, both fiction and non-fiction.
Come see NCSF at both Leather Pride Night and Folsom Street East! NCSF is very grateful to the NYC BDSM-leather-fetish community for raising a significant amount of our budget every year to further our advocacy and education goals.
