Preserve Our History

You can help ensure that the history and culture of leather, kink, fetish and BDSM endures.


The Leather Archives & Museum Exists Due to the Support of People Like You

People like you recognize the importance of having a permanent repository for the irreplaceable materials that document our history. Items that once would have been forgotten in attics and garages, discarded or destroyed, now have a home where they form the foundations for in-depth and reliable research.

The items housed here ensure that our stories will continue. Community leaders such as Michele Buchanan, Cynthia Slater, Vern Stewart and Marcus Hernandez have left our physical world, but their lives are documented in the historical collections of the archives, ensuring their legacy continues.

Your support makes this possible.
