The Women’s Leather History Program (WLHP) at the Leather Archives & Museum is an ongoing program created to generate strategic initiatives linked to programmatic vision, fundraising, collections development, facilitate exhibit updates, generate digital content related to women’s leather history, and sustain and continue to develop relationships with leather communities, organizations, and clubs who are integral in the development of dynamic women’s collections.

Mission: WLHP collects primary source materials, archival collections, artifacts, oral histories, published materials, and other items that represent the experience of all women in alternative sex and culture. The resulting collections will be featured in future exhibitions at the Leather Archives & Museum.

Tumblr’s ban on adult contest has sent seismic waves through the LGBTQ+ and fetish/kink communities, as the site previously provided a safe harbor for sex-positive content, as well as artistic expression.
