The second Leather History Preservation Weekend was held November 2nd - 4th, 2018, at the Red Lion Hotel High Point. Same building, different branding. Through some twist of fate, ALL of our historians for 2018 were unique individuals, representing the diversity and intersectionality of women in the Leather community. Whether they were cis gender, transgender, AFAB, non-binary, genderqueer, we gave them a space and a voice. We were delighted to have tomo, International slave 2016, as our keynote historian. We were honored to have all of our historians come to share their journeys with us - Ms Rhonda (tomo's owner and International Master 2016), Jennifer (Nightshade77), Daddi Panther, Jennifer Deese, Izzy Jaecks, and tidbit.
LHPW 2018 grew in attendance over our 2017 event, and that was a good thing! But the larger attendance did not interfere with the intimate atmosphere of the event. The is allowed everyone to spend time with our speakers and one another, to really connect and relate on a personal level. We had cocktails, cigar socials, and play spaces for those with a more sadistic or masochistic bent to enjoy as well.
We are incredibly grateful to our 2018 SPONSORS and Advertisers!
LHPW would not happen without their generous support!

The Leather Quilt Returned!
OUR 2018 HOST HOTEL
The venue and staff were welcoming as we returned to the same building for the second Leather History Preservation Weekend. From the General Manager, right on down to housekeeping, they worked with us to bring you a great event in a great facility. We had all the space we needed for cocktails, vending, socializing and playing. And the dinner Saturday was thoughtfully done and hot. They did such a great job in 2017, and they were happy to have us, even with the corporated brand having changed, and we were delighted to return for 2018!
The Leather History Preservation Weekend Crew
Leather History Preservation Weekend could not happen without a lot of on site work! From load-in and setup starting on Thursday evening, to load-out on Sunday afternoon, we need many hands to get things done. Event security, dungeon crew, history session monitors, hospitality helpers and more! Everyone chips in to make this event happen. The Board might do the pre-event planning and logistics, but without our dedicated on site staff and crew, LHPW just would not happen at all.
The Board salutes them and sends out a huge
