List of Current Active Community Partner Members
The Los Angeles Leather Coalition (LALC) is comprised of voting and non-voting members of the community. The voting members “Community Partners” vote on matters that instruct the Board on how they should steer the organization as it regards the LA Region’s Leather/BDSM Community and the operation of Los Angeles Leather Pride. Community Partners also elect and fill 5 out of the 9 Board of Director seats. Without the voice of our Community Partners the LALC would cease to function. Non-Voting Members as well as Members of the Community are welcome to come to our monthly meetings and voice concern on matters presented before the board.
