Date and Time
Friday, August 23rd, 2013 at 6:00pm
The Mr. & Ms. SF Sober Leather 2013 Contest is a Leather Title Contest open to ALL residents in the San Francisco Bay Area who identify as living a life free from active alcohol and substance addiction. This contest serves as a feeder contest for the Mr. and Ms San Francisco Leather, Mr & Ms Alameda County Leather and Santa Clara County Leather Association contests respectively depending on where the winner resides. This contest gives those individuals in sobriety who embrace leather in their lives a place within the community and to show that that Sobriety does have a place in the leather community
Doors open at 6:30 pm contest 7:00.
The mission of the contest is to show that even in sobriety you can still be leather/sex/kink/bdsm positive and that there is still a place for people in the community who identify as being sober, and that sober people can splay a key, representative role in the leather community. The two titleholders can also be considered as a beacon for those who feel addiction is a problem in their lives, and they can look to the titleholders as symbosl of strength creating a vehicle from which one may ask for help when they feel others may not be as understanding in the community. Whether or not a contestant or eventual titleholders are members of 12-step programs will not be disclosed by the contest, nor will the contestants themselves be required to disclose their affiliations. The titleholders do not represent any group conscience of the programs and remains separate from the various 12 step organizations as a whole; however the titleholders will work on creating a safe places and events for members who wish to engage in community and leather activities outside of the bars. This is an opportunity for those in the leather community who are also sober to gain representation. These representatives will then help create activities that cater to both sober people, and the community at large
One important point to be noted is that 12 step involvement is to remain anonymous. This is more about individuals whose lives involve sobriety and leather celebrating both. Under no circumstance will the contest or titleholders be required to share or disclose their sobriety status. Nor will they be asked about it in interviews or judged on their sobriety as this about focusing on embracing a sober, leather and kink positive life versus focusing on the past that is no ones business but the individual's.
