The first ever UK Leather Pride event is set to be held in Bristol, it has been announced.

The event – which organisers hope will be the biggest Pride event in the UK dedicated to the leather subculture – has been announced to debut in Bristol this year.

Organisers said: “The UK needed a leather pride; Leather Pride needed a home.

“So, a small team of leathermen got together and decided to organise a UK Leather Pride. We looked around for a city to host such a great weekend – and we chose Bristol.”

Several events will take place across the city for the Pride – including a “Leather Speed Date” event and a “Grand Leather Quiz” to raise money for the main Bristol Pride.

The organisers continued: “Bristol’s a quirky city and is well suited to leathermen. The city hosted Bristol Leather Weekend last year which was an outstanding success.

“We figured the city would be an ideal host for the first ever UK Leather Pride. And, after consulting with local businesses and groups, we settled on the first weekend of November as the right time to hold it.”

The event will be held on the weekend of November 6-8, with several events taking place across the city to celebrate.
