L.A. Leather Pride Contestants Soak Up SoCal

They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. But in these parts, the end of March brings a parade of bears strutting their stuff on the SoCal streets.

From Long Beach’s Eagle 562 to Studio City’s fabled Oil Can Harry’s, all the way down to DTLA’s Bearacuda, the streets of SoCal were aflame on Saturday, March 10, as L.A.’s finest Leather Lovers crawled their way down the coast to kick off L.A. Leather Pride. A time-honored gay tradition in Los Angeles, Leather Pride allows fans of the fabric (as well as the proudly kinky lifestyle) to don their finest leather duds in public from March 18 to the 25. March 10’s SoCal pub crawl, featuring all 11 winners of the “feeder” category (don’t ask – or do!) across Southern California leather bars, was a kick-off to the proper start of the celebration, as contestants moved from bar to bar to celebrate their victory. However, we won’t know the winner of Mr. Los Angeles Leather Pride until March 24, when the lucky man is crowned King at the Globe Theater.

Until that time, we can enjoy the beauty of bears in their finery to see out the rest of March in style.
