CAPE GIRARDEAU — Heartland Leather Education Alliance (Heartland LEA) is dedicated to education and support of persons who are interested in, or live, the Leather Life.
We are honored to serve Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Northwest Tennessee, and Northeast Arkansas.
ANYONE living Leather or interested in learning about Leather.
In June of 2015, slave nanon became the first Missouri Ms. Leather at the Show Me Leather Contest Weekend in Kansas City, Missouri. She was incredibly impressed by the sense of community between the gay and pansexual Leather Communities in the Kansas City area.
She came back to the bootheel filled with spirit and enthusiasm to try to build some bridges there. It took some time, but she started meeting some of the gay Leather Community at Independence Place when St. Louis’ Blue Max CC sponsored a Guerrilla Leather Bar Takeover of the only LGBT bar in Cape Girardeau. Specifically, that is where she and fellow founding organizer, Harley Nightshadows, met their third founding organizer, Boy Will.
Heartland LEA had their first meeting in May of 2016. Since then, the Heartland LEA membership has continued to have meetings and educational nights on the first Tuesday of every month.
Two of the founding members, Frog and Frogette who are the Paducah Munch organizers, had begun having a biannual small event with classes, dinner, and a small dungeon in Paducah, Kentucky.
In the fall of 2016, it was decided to bring the event across the rivers to Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Since then, they have had two successful events and are happy to announce they will be having their third event, Naughty New Year, on January 13, 2018. Founding members, and the board, include Harley Nightshadows, Boy Will, slave nanon, Frog, Frogette, drawn, RK, Wade_W_Wilson, and _aim_2_misbehave. We cordially invite you to join us!
