This year’s annual Leather Masked Ball will be hosted at Boom in Wilton Manors and will feature, 3 DJs, a separate VIP lounge, and outdoor chill area.

“It just makes sense to have this event, which benefits LGBT organizations, in our backyard,” says Pete Trimble, Leather Men’s Brotherhood’s Vice President. “The management at Boom, Craig, Chris and Russ, have gone far above the call to ensure the Leather community and curious will have a party like no other.”

The VIP party will feature complimentary cocktails courtesy of Bud Light, Pisco Porton and Zyr Vodka, and hors d’ouvres provided by The Courtyard Café.  The VIP lounge will have 2 bootblacks on duty, a puppy play pen and a full schedule of BDSM entertainment.

The main floor will feature a musical journey with DJ/Producer John LePage from San Francisco.  LePage’s extensive list of events includes The Black and Blue Ball (Montreal), White Party (Miami), LazyBear Weekend (Guerneville), The Factory (Los Angeles), The Onyx Ball (Toronto),  and Folsom Street East (NYC).  Live BDSM entertainment is also provided by the 2011 International titleholders, LeatherSIR Alan Penrod and leatherboy pup nitro.

The front room has DJ JimmyP bringing his style from years at The Eagle and Tunnel in NYC, as well as Fort Lauderdale’s Eagle and Chainz.  Also in the front room, the ever popular silent auction is showcasing many items and services donated by local businesses.  Peruse the tables to find that perfect item you’ve always wanted.

Upstairs has studio photography by Jason Leidy (Middle River Photography) and 2 bootblacks ready to shine your soles.

Proceeds from The Leather Masked Ball SIX will fund a $10,000 grant to a new Teen Suicide Prevention Program at Broward House as well as $10,000 to the Leather Archive and Museum in Chicago, North America’s only repository of artifacts and history of the Leather Community.
