CHICAGO – In 2013 we had the largest contingent of leather/rubber/fetish folk ever to march in a Chicago Gay Pride Parade and it was hoped we could do it again in 2014.

I have reserved a spot in this year’s Pride Parade for our group of leather/rubber/fetish clubs to march together again. We have the truck reserved as well for those needing to ride. Hopefully your club/organization will join us again.

The only thing left for me to arrange is what clubs to list on the banners for the sides of our truck. Please let me know if your group will be joining us or not and get the word out to your members.

I have not been given our number in the line up, that will not come out till the week before. But you can bet we will be lining up on Broadway between Wilson & Montrose Avenues that Sunday morning for the noon step off.

As in previous years, we will return to Touché for our Beer Bust and cookout.

Once I have total costs for the parade and know which clubs are participating, I will calculate the split costs, but it should remain in the $30-50 range.

If you’re an organization and want your logo on the banner, please respond (to David) by June 20 to allow for the banners to be printed.

Last year, we saw leathermen, bears, cubs, leatherwomen, rubbermen, fetish folks, kinksters, Masters & slaves, Dominants & submissives, Sirs & boys, Daddies & girls and others come together! “If it makes you hard or wet, be proud!” was the motto.

This year, let’s do it again and bring more clubs, organizations and people together to show our leather pride!
