Toronto Leather Pride – Where leather and fetish collide!
Toronto Leather Pride brings together the fetish, leather and “non vanilla” people of Toronto and beyond for a unique celebration of solidarity together with a party atmoshpere that raises funds for local charities while also throwing one of the sexiest parties in Canada.
The highlight of the event is the Leather Ball, Toronto’s Leather Ball weekend is strictly for the boys, and the butcher the better. The party takes place at
the Opera House in Toronto. The dress code of leather is strictly enforced, so don’t even think about wearing your new jeans. However scantily clad the 2500
party-goers are, nudity is not tolerated.
Other events include the Mr. Leatherman Toronto, Mr. Rubber Toronto and the Ms. Leather Toronto Competitions, the TLP Educational Series and the Victory
Leather Brunch. Nearly 1,000 people turn out on Saturday, Toronto Leather Pride Competitions and Leather Ball at the Phoenix Concert Theatre.
The Toronto Leather Pride Day Party with Fetish Market takes place at Zipperz/Cellblock (72 Carlton Street). The Black Eagle Toronto and Steamworks also host
special parties and events throughout the weeklong festival.
