TAMPA, Fla. – We are all aware our community’s diverse roots. These roots and history are made up of a variety of social groups and should all be approached with “Respect”. Some are closeted and some have had the strength, support, desire and education to push the door open seeking general society’s acceptance. If this acceptance does not offer a complete embrace, it does present an understanding that we as individuals are the spirit of freedom. Providing the outlet and/or safe social gathering to explore our thoughts/fantasies that also provides information/education to make sound personal decisions is essential to the growth and safety of our community.

We, the Board and Staff, would like to Welcome the Tampa Bay Leather Sir and boy Contest as well as International Puppy 2013 to this event and are pleased to announce their Judges: Head Judge Mark Frazier, Al Santora, boy mark Greene, Sir Frank, boy Rick, pup Tripp Hutchings, and “Mama’s Ybor Mama” Carol Stern.

Approaching our 2nd Annual Event we are not a large organization but struggle to grow and provide mentors to those individuals on the fringes regardless of their desires, life choices, and “YES” fetishes. All fetishes and life changes/choices are embraced: leather, cross-gender, puppies, pony’s, circuit, bear, chasers, boy’s, boi’s, girls, Sir, Master, slave, those that consider themselves “vanilla” but like to be tickled with a feather………. etc.etc……..

During the weekend long event we will be having the opening Ceremonies on Friday with the Meet n Greet, demos, and Dungeon Spaces, Saturday you can hang around the pool and watch demos and or participate in the Educational Workshops outside, pictures with the puppies, the contest in the evening and then our first Black n Blü Ball as well as Dungeon Spaces, and on Sunday Victory Luncheon followed by the Victory T-Dance and Dungeon Spaces open. All profits will go to the following ASAP, Francis House, and Mr. Friendly.

We still have run packages available and are still looking for sponsors & advertisers in our program for more information on TBLFP please visit WWW.TBLFP.Com.
