Past Events

In keeping with our ongoing mission to preserve the history of our Leather culture, and to promote the multiple, diverse voices representing the many paths of Leather, we strongly feel that we should record our own history of events and activities as the Foundation grows. On the following pages you'll get at least a brief glimpse of what we've done and who we've shared our stories with.

Leather History Conference 2016


The Leather History Preservation Foundation was created to produce Leather History Conference 2016. While the event was a success, it was to be the last Leather History Conference the Foundation would produce.

LHPW 2018 happened November 2 - 4, 2018, and returned to the same venue under new branding - the Red Lion Hotel High Point. We grew our event in attendance and fun. After three years at the same hotel, we had hoped for a long term contract. But 2018 was to be our last event there. 2019 is bringing changes!

Leather History Preservation Weekend 2017 was held October 20 - 22, 2017. It was a small, intimate event, and was a success by almost every metric we could measure. It was the inaugural event for our vision, it won't be our last.
