Chicago Den To Offer Free Classified Ads, Start Funding Push

TCD LogoCHICAGO – We here at the Chicago Den are honored to serve the Midwest bear, leather and fetish communities. And to celebrate reaching our 1,000th post since our reestablishment in 2011, we’re going to set the prices in our classified section to zero for the next two months.

All classified ads – personal, sales, jobs/volunteering, services and general ads – will be free until the end of March 2013. Which means anyone who posts a classified ad gets free access to the 3,500 pageviews (and growing) that the Den gets each month. We may extend it depending on demand and requests from the community. But for two months, you all can go wild selling your dungeon equipment, looking for Mr./Ms. Right (or Mr./Ms. This Weekend), finding volunteers for your nonprofit or next event , or advertising your own small business.  To get started, you just need to go to and place your ad.

Our correspondents, columnists and publisher all contribute of their time and skills to bring you the Den every day. Almost everything we do is out of pocket and done out of love for the community and to inform every one of the opportunities and activities, along with community news.

We like to do more. I would love to be able to pay the Den’s writers. I would love to expand what we can offer on the den, including multimedia, sponsorships and communications. But to do that, we need your help.

On the right of the page, you will see a box labeled “Support the Leather Press.” It allows you to donate money on a monthly basis to the Den. You can give as little as $5 per month or as much as $50.

Think of it as public radio. We know not everyone contribute and we don’t expect them to. But if you are able to, please consider contributing to support what we do in covering and supporting the community. The money you donate will allow us to pay the writers, get updated equipment, sponsor more events and keep the lights on.

We are the largest kink and leather publication in the Midwest and the only news publication that publishes news on a daily basis, 7 days a week. We’ll keep doing it but we can do more with your help. Please consider donating to support your community newspaper.
