The Leather Hall of Fame is a community organization that recognizes people and organizations who have made significant contributions to the modern leather community over time and provides a historical and educational reference for the community. It aims to represent all people in the modern leather community (1950 – present) around the world, without regard to gender or sexual orientation.
Its logo was designed by San Francisco artist Jon Stoa.
