Leather Pride Amsterdam 2017

by our Editors in Events & Agenda , 14 oktober 2017


Slightly more than a month after leathermen and other fetish lovers gather in San Francisco for the annual Folsom Street Fair, a street festival that is the main attraction of the Leather Pride Week in the City by the Bay and attracts up to 400,000 visitors, the fetish lover can go and visit the Dutch capital for Leather Pride Amsterdam.

This year, the event is organized for the twenty-first time and will take place from October 26-29.

Leather lovers who want to purchase a new outfit or accessories for this event can visit Black Body, Kerkstraat 173, where from 11:00 to 19:00 on the 26th of October and the following days, the “Black Body Super Sale” will offer up to thirty percent discounts for some brands. Since 1995, Black Body is specialized in rubber, but it also carries other fetish items, including leather, sportswear and underwear.

Browsing can’t hurt! On that very same day, October 26, the Leather Pride starts at 20:00 in Dirty Dicks, Warmoesstraat 86, with the “Golden Shower Party.” Until three o’clock at night and hosted by Tim, the Master of the Gold Shower, the water will flow abundantly with beer and soft drinks for only three euros! A tight rubber short certainly can better handle a waterfall than a complete leather outfit. Those who are into other types of extravagant entertainment can visit Club Church, Kerkstraat 52, for “Blue Leather” (22:00-04:00). The Hopelezz family will guarantee an exuberant and eccentric party.

On Friday, October 27, the “Chechnya100 Charity Auction: Double Damage Mode” will take place at Mister B, Warmoesstraat 89, from 16:30 till 18:30. The leather shop has asked national and international title holders to make a sexy or funny item available for this charity auction, with the proceedings going to the victims of the persecution in Chechnya, represented by the Chechnya100 Foundation. The items under the hammer can range from a used jockstrap to real collector items, or possibly even having a coffee with a title holder. Rest assured, there will be something for everyone.

On Friday night at 21:00 in Undercurrent, Papaverweg 265, one of the two main parties of this Leather Pride will start: “XXXLeather XL Edition.” DJs are DJ Hansom (The Netherlands) and DJ Rob C (United Kingdom). In addition to exciting music and a large cruising and sex area, party visitors can also enjoy various shows, including performances by international porn stars. First of all, there is the hairy top Ale Tedesco, who, together with Michael Selvaggio, once did the bottom Michael Duncan with dildos, fists and their dicks to such an extent that Mr. Faxton wondered: “How Much Pain Can One Hole Take?”

In addition to Tedesco, the strict-looking daddy Alberto Esposito, blessed with nineteen centimetres, will also give a show. This warm-blooded Italian is, in addition to being a porn actor, also an interior designer and the owner of a Bed & Breakfast on Sicily. In view of his appearance, he somewhat surprisingly indicates that he is sexually versatile in his porn work as well as in his personal life. The dress code for “XXXLeather XL Edition” is: fetish only! The party closes at 05:00, and the entry fee is 20.00 euros.

Although this all sounds extremely exciting, it is wise not to use up all your energy on Friday. The festivities are continued with a vengeance on Saturday, October 28. From 13:00-17:00, Mister B has an “Outlet & Sample Sale.” For those who are charmed by a faithful, or not so faithful, but playful puppy, Club Church will start the election of “Mr Puppy Netherlands 2018” at 13:00. The participants will present their qualities in three rounds.

They will be judged by the members of the jury, and visitors can also cast their votes, as the elected puppy will represent the audience. The contest ends at 19:00. Besides a stage, there is also a large playroom where both experienced and noobs can immerse themselves in the puppy universe. And those who want to practice or check this scene out can meet the contestants of the Mr Puppy contest on Friday (19:00-21:00) at The Web, Sint Jacobsstraat 6, at the informal “Meet & Greet.”

On Saturday, October 28, the second main party of Leather Pride, the fourth edition of “Invasion”, will take place at Undercurrent. This venue can host up to 1,200 visitors. At this party, the election of Mister Leather Europe will take place. This election is covered in more detail elsewhere in this issue. But that is not all! Visitors can enjoy themselves on the dance floor with the soaring beats of DJ Rafa Nunes (France) and DJ RW (The Netherlands).

In addition, they can enjoy go-go dancers and performances by porn stars Aymeric and AJ Alexander, who won the title “Best British Top” at the Prowler Porn Awards this year. For those who want to visit both “Invasion” and “XXXLeather XL Edition,” it is important to know that a special combination ticket is available that gives access to both fetish parties at a reduced price. This combination ticket is 35.00 euros and is only available pre-sale. A normal ticket for “Invasion” is 25.00 euros.

Project ZuiderBurgDuring Leather Pride, Getto Food & Drinks, Warmoesstraat 51, exhibits the photographic works of Project ZuiderBurg under the title “Food for Thought.” Although this title has been used for the presence of the duo there before, that does not make their works less fascinating. The men behind Project ZuiderBurg are photographer René Zuiderveld and Photoshop artist Gabriël Batenburg. In close collaboration, they create photographic (make-believe) realities with a strong theatrical character, sometimes mysterious. Dramatic, fairy-tale like, theatrical - but also playful and humorous.

The information above is just a selection of the Leather Pride  Amsterdam program, as the Cuckoo’s Nest, Nieuwezijds Kolk 6, known for its large cruise cellar, also participates in this event. Furthermore, the Amsterdam Kink Academy organizes various workshops on Friday and Saturday, including workshops on bondage, fisting and pain.
