Keep The Leather Journal Going

Hello Leatherfolk,

Since May, 1987, The Leather Journal has been bringing news to the Leather community in print. The first Issue was a quarterly, and within a couple years advanced to bimonthly and then to a monthly newspaper. The Leather Journal has been honored and blessed in so many ways and has accomplished iron-man records in LGBTQ publishing. When it hasn’t always been easy, we have withstood every challenge.  has grown strong during the pandemic. For many, the print and online versions of The Leather Journal are the only available sources of community information.

The Leather Journal has been publishing for over one-third of a century and is the longest continuously-running Leather publication in world history. We are so proud of that record, but we can not stop and rest on our laurels. We need to keep going, proving print and online Leather community news. WE need your support in order to do that.

Remember the first time you saw your photo and/or name in The Leather Journal or on and how proud you felt? You can help the newer folk in the Leather community share this experience.

A sincere thank you to all. We have been blessed with the support we have received over the years and are thankful to those who can assist now.
