I am proud to say this project is currently underway, recordings have begun, and I look forward to sharing what develops. During my International Power Exchange 2013 title year I had a vision of recording and producing a “NYC BDSM & Leather History” panel as a fund raiser to complete the title year travel obligations. There were skeptics wondering if anyone would come out, would anyone care, did anyone want to listen? The NYC BDSM/Leather History panel was welcomed with open arms and people were not only hungry to hear about history, they asked for more. Leather Voices is born from a desire to give back to those who will open their ears and hearts.
This project is a mission to record and preserve individual oral histories and memory circles of small groups and families living in NYC and its nearby surrounding neighbors. The intense focus being on preserving voices from the Leather diaspora.
The vision of Leather Voices is to present the Leather Community in a positive light and preserve oral histories & memory circles for the public.
