Join us for our 6th annual Philadelphia Leather Pride Night.... winner of the 2012 Pantheon of Leather Event of the Year and producer of the 2014 Leather Leadership Conference. Our evening will once again take place inside Voyeur Nightclub located in the heart of Philadelphias gayborhood. Returning for her 6th year is our million dollar auctioneer Jo Arnone.

Our live auction consists of items across the spectrum...everything from Opera tickets, event passes, leather and fetish clothing, adult themed toys, equipment, books, art, jewelry and always a few special surprise items.
Our silent auction will be run by Philadelphia's oldest and still active munch group - The Gate Munch. They have been part of PLPN since its inception in 2009. Bootblacking will be available all night on our main floor with Wicked Jade and a local crew of fabulous bootblacks.

After the auction we have two great afterparties. The Bike Stop, located on Quince Street has been our official after party for the last five years. If you want something a bit different our official after play party, The Aviary, is taking place at the William Way Center located at 1315 Spruce Street just two blocks away.
We have partnered with The Aviary and are selling discounted joint tickets. $30 will get you entrance to both parties during the evening. The Aviary runs late into the night so head on over and try out any new goodies you may have won during the auction.
Our Pre-event dinner has changed locations. We are now at The Tavern located in the downstairs of Tavern on Camac (TOC) 243 S Camac Street Philadelphia. This venue is less then one block to our main venue Voyeur located at 1221 Saint James Street. Due to the intimacy of the space we will only be selling 30 tickets to the dinner and they will only be sold in combination with Philadelphia Leather Pride Night tickets. Dinner and PLPN combo tickets will be $35.
Our featured speakers are 2014 International Mr Leather Ramien from Washington DC and 2014 International Ms Leather Patty from Toronto. Come hear about the history and lives of our International titleholders followed by a Q&A facilitated by Toni Solenne.
