    Its a wrap! Last night was the first session in our New Guard leather education series and it was a huge success with approximately $400 raised for Black Rainbow - the charity chosen by our presenter Boi Alex. 

    We had a fantastic mix of old and new faces eager to learn about Leather Service.  Thank you to everyone who came along and we hope to see you all again soon. 

    Our next event in the series will be Finger to Fist on Saturday 11th May 2019 presented by Master Bella and boy Paulus,.  Tickets will be available shortly via our events page.

    We are excited to announce the commencement of our New Guard Educational Series as we endeavour to honour leather history and culture and allow it to change and evolve around us.

    Funds raised from each event will be donated to the presenters charity of choice.   

    The leather community has a long history of fundraising for community initiatives and organisations within the LGBTIQA+ community, from historic and current responses to HIV/AIDS through to helplines catering to the communities mental health needs.  VLI has raised money to donate to various LGBTIQA+ and related community organisations in the past and are committed to continuing this.

    The series will kick off on Saturday April 13th with Leather Service 101 and be held on the second Saturday of each month.

    Discounted pricing will be available to VicLeather members and sales are open to members first.  If you're not already a member, you can visit our membership page to submit your application.  New members will be eligible for the discounted tickets.

    Earlier this month, members of the committee caught up with Sharrin (IMsLBB), Pat (IMsL Foundation) and Girl Ang (IMsL 2018), for a great night in Lygon Street.  We hope Sharrin and Pat enjoyed the remainder of their trip to Australia and we look forward to hearing more about Girl Ang's travels, adventures and IMsL experiences once she has completed her IMsL title year!

    A big thank you to those who came along to the Chill Out March in Daylesford whether you walked with us or were one of the amazing cheering crowd.  The atmosphere was fantastic and hearing the crowd cheer as they saw us was wonderful.  There were even some excited squeels from adults and children alike as our rainbow storm trooper came into view.  Thank you also to the awesome pups that marched with us.  Here is a photo of some of us getting ready at muster.

    Thanks to all the members who attended and participated in VLI’s Annual General Meeting last night. 

    It’s been an unusually turbulent year for the organisation, and this was reflected in the reports and the robust discussion that followed during General Business. 

    The key points from the meeting are:

    - we acknowledge and have learned from our mistakes

    - we have taken steps to ensure that these will not be repeated should any similar issues arise

    - we are excited by the opportunity to switch focus to meeting our members’ needs and serving the Leather community

    - to this end we will, in November, be sending all members (financial and lapsed) a survey asking what you would like in terms of events 

    - we can only address issues that we are aware of: please let us know your concerns

    The report and minutes will be posted on our website no later than close of business Tuesday; an email will be sent to all members with the link. 

    In Leather,

    Your 2018/19 VLI committee

    In the interest of transparency the VLI committee has decided to publish a brief summary and timeline of recent events.

    This statement does not apportion blame or innocence of any party. It only addresses the role the VLI committee could take under the rules of our constitution.(these are published on our website). 

    The committee cannot and will not publish personal names or details of any party involved.

    On the 12th of May 2018 the then president of VLI tendered his resignation as president, stating health and personal issues.

    On the 1st of June 2018 at 5.19 pm VLI received a email from a member requesting the former president of VLI / committee member position be reviewed (The president had already stepped down).

    This email was acknowledged on 2nd of June at 11.21 am.

    VLI received another email on the 1st of June at 7.40 pm demanding a response within 24 hours. This email was in relation to the first email received a couple of hours earlier.

    This email was acknowledged on 2nd of June at 10.15 am.

    When the member in question was made aware that there was a grievance lodged with VLI he tendered his resignation from VLI on the 3rd of June 2018.

    As the constitution of VLI ONLY allows for any action to be taken against its members there was nothing the VLI committee could do as the person in question was no longer a member.

    The matter in now outside the scope of VLI and therefore is closed as to any action VLI could or should take.

    VLI will not enter into any public debate on this matter and any negative or inflammatory comments will be deleted 

    In Leather, 

    VLI Committee
