About Us.

In 25+ years, the San Diego Leather Realm has grown to become a 24,000+ square foot lushly landscaped, age-restricted area of The San Diego Pride Festival. The Leather Realm opens its’ doors for 16+ hours of education and fun, hosting nearly 10k attendees during the annual 2 day Festival every July. Realm hours run from 11 am to 8 pm Saturday and 11 am to 6 pm Sunday.

Our mission is one of educational outreach. We are a group of cross-community and club volunteers dedicated to providing visibility, awareness and communication of Safe, Sane and Consensual play, Leather, BDSM, Fetish, and Kink Life Styles through hands-on demonstration areas, workshops, community organizations, and alternative lifestyle friendly businesses.

Our goal is to provide support in the eradication of stereotypical misconceptions within and about the lifestyle choices of the Leather /BDSM /Fetish /Kink /Alternative communities at large.

Our pursuit of these goals is a welcoming and reassuring one. Feel free to try something new or stand back and watch. Come in and check us out. You just may find what you’ve been looking for.

We address issues of safety and health, promoting awareness through street theater, guiding spiritual enlightenment, abolishing bigotry and hatred, and working to end stereotypes.
