2015 PHILADELPHIA LEATHER PRIDE NIGHT - SATURDAY NOVEMBER 7, 2015
Auction & Ben's Kinky Bake Off!
Join us for our 7th 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 the newly renovated Voyeur Nightclub located in the heart of Philadelphias gayborhood. Wait until you see the new decor and layout!
Returning for her 7th year is our million dollar auctioneer Jo Arnone. With her booming voice we have been able to raise and donate out over $64,000 for our charities.
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 Sir Kim and a local crew of fabulous bootblacks including 2015 Philadelphia Bootblack Jade and 2013 Mid-Atlantic Leatherboy Quinton.
Each year we bring in a a guest Emcee or two for the event. This year our Emcee is Karen "Ultra Domme". Karen has emcee'd and volunteered at events around the country and has a wit and flair about her that is unmatched. Karen is also the featured speaker this year at our pre-event presentation of "An Intimate Conversation With..." facilitated by Toni Solenne This is Karen's first trip to Philadelphia and we look forward to showing off our City of Leatherly Love. This conversation will take place on the 2nd floor of Voyeur at 5pm.
Making a special appearance will Mr Phoenix Leather Pup Tugger... for anyone who follows International Mr Leather this is TuggerGate! Pup Tugger gave one of the best speeches heard on the IML stage this past May and he'll be giving a repeat presentation on our stage in Philadelphia. An amazing man who is not afraid to be himself and has the mindset that if they're going to talk...lets give them something to talk about!
We bring in entertainment every year to make the night magical. Once again we will have a fire spinning show otuside our venue then opening the night is Bruce Michael Gelbert followed by some amazing performers. Wait till you see who's in the house this year!
