Colorado Springs Pride Weekend
Come celebrate Colorado Springs Pride with Voodoo Leatherworks!
History of Work by Robert McClain
We will be hosting two showings of Mustache Paintings and Story: History of Work by Robert McClain over the weekend.
Robert McClain—an educator in the public schools here in Colorado Springs—passed away a few years ago leaving a treasure collection of his own works of art behind. The remaining family had no want for these paintings of men—mostly from the 1970s—and had told the caretakers of the estate to simply throw them away; over 200 of these incredible pieces were salvaged. Mr.McClain wrote dates and names on almost every painting he ever made, meaning you will find his story of the men he painted and what they were to him.
There will be a showing July 12th at 5:00 PM and July 13th at 10:00 AM. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
Men’s Only Dungeon Party
There will be a Men’s Only dungeon party on July 12th from 7:00 PM–12:00 AM. If you are not a member, be sure to attend the orientation that day at 6:00 PM.
Colorado Springs Pride Parade
Voodoo Leatherworks also has a spot in the Colorado Springs PrideFest parade on July 14th, which begins at Cimarron and Tejon and ends at America the Beautiful Park. People marching in the parade can begin lining up at 8:00 AM, and the parade starts at 11:00 AM. Participants can enter from the south at the corner of Cimarron and Tejon. We usually meet before the parade at Oscar’s, a bar off Tejon and Costilla.
Volunteer Training Class
We are holding a volunteer training class on July 18th from 6:30–9:30 PM. This class will prepare you to shadow and be ready to practice the various skills needed to help in several key positions. There is a lot of new information for every role, so please come out for a refresher as well. Thank you to everyone who is willing to learn and step up to help!
Voodoo Voyeur: Call for Submissions
The Voodoo Voyeur is back! Issue #1—published September 26th, 2015—was the first kink and alternative lifestyle magazine published in Southern Colorado, a labor of love sporting high production values and submissions of all sorts—stories, articles, photos, art, and more—from Voodoo’s membership body.
In the interest of a shorter publication cycle, the new Voodoo Voyeur is intended to function more like a “zine”—an inexpensively produced, self-published, underground publication. This means we’ll be able to accept more submissions than ever before, capturing a much broader picture of the Southern Colorado BDSM community and what makes it so special!
Issue #2 is currently in the works! We are accepting submissions until July 31st. If you are interested in putting your article, fiction, art, poetry, photography, or anything else you make that can fit on a printed page, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind that releases will be required for each identifiable individual in all photographs.
Kinky Prom 2019
Join us on the red carpet for a night you won’t forget! Your 2019 Colorado Master and Slave and Voodoo Leatherworks invite you to put on a little glamour and glitz and join us for Kinky Prom 2019.
This gala fundraiser will be packed with some amazing performances, a silent auction, great food and adult beverages, some light kinky play, and much more! Of course, what red carpet evening would be complete without an awards ceremony, and no prom is over until we crown prom royalty.
Come on out to Voodoo Leatherworks on August 10th, from 7:00 PM–12:00 AM, support your state title holders, and be part of the best prom all year!
EXILE 7 Fetish Ball
EXILE 7 Fetish Ball provides an annual showcase for local talent to come together and celebrate the kink and fetish lifestyle. It will feature fetish demonstrations, dancing, and other darker artistry including live musicians, DJs, fashion & stylists, visual artists, and vendors.
