Vegans, look away now: Leather Pride is hitting Dublin city from January 26 – 28. There’s a smörgåsbord of events crammed into the weekend, with a mixture of paid and free events to entice the leather lovers out there.
Leather Pride Dublin is a weekend of events organised by the community group GEARED Ireland. GEARED Ireland is the country’s longest-running leather and fetish group for men.
The events are held on the last weekend of January and are focused on the gay leather and fetish community of Ireland and their international friends.
The weekend eases attendees in gently with cocktails on Friday January 26 from 6 pm at The Blind Pig followed by a Meet and Greet at Street 66 from 9 pm. On Saturday 27, the day kicks off with a cultural tour at 11 am, followed by ‘Pints and Platters’ at the Galway Bay Brewery on Cornmarket.
Later on, it’s time to dust off the old leather tuxedo for a formal Leather Dinner at WUFF, followed that evening by GEARED Ireland’s Mr Leather Ireland contest at Fibber Magees.
On the night we will have bondage demos, a cigar smoking area, our resident DJs Steo Dub and El Styra will be on the decks.
The next day is all about chilling and kicking back in your most comfortable chaps, kicking off at 12 pm with Leather Brunch at Oscars and followed by a Fireside Chat and look at the Leather Archives in the Central Hotel Library Bar.
Then there’s a fab Fetish Dinner at 7.30pm at Viva in Portobello, before the weekend finishes with a dungeon chill out called ‘Sounds and Sleaze’ at 9.30pm, downstairs in the same venue.
Premier packages have sold out but there are still a number of PRIDE packages available so book now to avoid disappointment.
