A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT:
 

Greetings folks:


On behalf of The Palm Springs Leather Order of the Desert (PSLOD), and the leather community of Palm Springs, I’m excited to welcome you to PS Leather Pride™ 2024, DEEPER THAN EVER!  This year, we have added several diverse events to the schedule to make your Palm Springs Leather Pride™ Experience even more memorable.  And the events that you have come to know and love, are taking on some new elements I’m certain you’ll enjoy.  We have started even earlier this year to offer you more value through sponsorships, more time to plan your travel- and, just more overall. It’s called DEEPER THAN EVER, that means deeper impact, deeper commitment, deeper devotion, deeper relationships, and overall- deeper meaning.  We have become increasingly more diverse as a community.  You will see that we are focused on inclusion and we are making every effort to extend our reach to all facets of Kink and Fetish.  We encourage you to be curious.  Ask questions. The opposite of fear is education.  It might not be your thing, but you'll be less likely to "yuck someone else's yum" if you learn a bit about it.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank our generous returning sponsors and welcome our new ones, as well.  It takes a village to make a weekend like this.  PS Leather Pride™ is the only completely volunteer driven Leather, Kink, and Fetish event in the world.  ALL of the monies generated go to support LGBTQIA+ organizations.  That's something we are extremely proud to share with you, and do for you.

​This year- go deeper into what turns you on.  Gathering together to celebrate what feels good to us, what turns us on, what gets us off, is a privilege and our right.  Our kinks, our swirls, and everything in between.  The ultimate distraction from turbulent global woes.  I look forward to greeting each and every one of you, so stop me if you see me and say hello.  And, more than anything, on behalf all of my PSLOD hims, hers, and thems -we want you to have the very best time ever!

Big Love-

David Dunn

President
Palm Springs Leather Order of the Desert
