It is such a blessing to see my vision come to fruition. A few months ago I attended IMsL in San Francisco. My Daddy, Spencer (a former IMsL) had not been in awhile & it was my first time. We had an absolute blast and were impressed with how the traditions are being upheld. It felt different than Seattle (where I live now) and different than LA (where I used to live). I felt I was amongst family - strongly bonded Leather family. There was a fierce girl presence that I had never seen or felt before. I had suddenly stumbled across what was missing from my Leather lifestyle & journey - family and girl power.

The San Francisco girls of Leather were everywhere. I wanted to join and come down monthly just to feel this energy. They were alive & freakin' kickin'! When I came home to Seattle & went to my first kink event since IMsL, I was sadly disappointed. I missed that energy that SFgoL brought. I whined to my Daddy and told him again that I really wished we had a Leathergirl group here. He, being the awesome Daddy that he is, said "start one". So I did and 6 months later we have 20 full members and 95 supporters.

Part of what I witnessed at IMsL and what I've felt was missing here at home was a sense of unity. I know for many that term is overused really reflects what I have felt was missing. Everything feels so separated & segregated - especially where gender & sexual orientation are key. There is a gap in the Leather community here in the PNW. Right now the gay men, pansexuals, sex positive, lesbians, and transgender people all play in separate corners. It is my hope that SgoL can can help to create bridges and that the Seattle Leathergirls are welcomed everywhere. And beyond that, by giving girls leadership roles and encouraging them to take lead in projects they are learning first hand what it means to be a Leathergirl.

The Seattle girls rock. Twenty four rsvp'd to the slumber party and all 24 came! We are currently holding a toiletry drive benefiting the Salvation Army Women's program. We were of service the NW LeatherSir, boy and Community Bootblack contest. We are planning on painting Allena's cabin at The Longhouse. We're hosting hospitality Friday night at Leather Reign V. The girls are throwing an "All Hallow's Eve Masquerade of Decadence" on October 29 at The CSPC. SgoL's share of the door will go to the Washington State Ms. Leather travel fund.

There are many other things in the works, and we've only just begun.

I'm very excited to see what the future will hold and to be able to report to you every month on what an amazing group of women are part of SgoL and the amazing things we're doing.

In Leather,
Your SgoL president,
Candace Cantrell
