Audrey Joseph [Edit]
Audrey Joseph is best known as an American record executive, nightclub owner and manager, and LGBT rights activist.
Joseph produced the dance stage at the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco for many years.
She hosted the first leather subculture contests in San Francisco.
She was also a producer of the event International Ms. Leather; specifically, after the first International Ms. Leather contest, the membership of the board shifted, and Audrey Joseph joined the board and became part of the core of the group that produced International Ms. Leather for the following eight years. As well, after International Ms. Leather was held at the Giftcenter, it moved to a hotel venue and then to Club Townsend, which was owned by Audrey Joseph. International Ms. Leather was able to use Club Townsend for free, which allowed them to maximize the proceeds that were donated to charity each year.
In 1997, Audrey Joseph received the Business Person of the Year award as part of the Pantheon of Leather Awards.
