Our Mission

The Mission of the Ms. San Francisco Leather contest is to create and maintain an annual contest/event that (1) celebrates our diverse and dynamic Greater San Francisco Bay Area leather/kink/fetish community, and (2) raises money to support the work of relatively small non-profit organizations. Each year at the Ms. San Francisco Leather contest, an esteemed panel of judges selects a leatherwoman to represent our community. This representative is a leatherwoman who exemplifies the principles of honor, service and community commitment.
