Family, officially came into existence in 1999. A small group
of close friends attending the Black Rose BR99 weekend decided
that since we felt we were already a "family" in spirit,
we should become one in name. So,
together, founding members - Bo, Miss Cleo Vale, Domina
Skye, Jonathan Vale and Lady Kayla became one as Sovereign
styles vary, our common thread is a strong belief in Safe,
Sane and Consensual BDSM and a feeling of responsibility
to pass on the skills and lessons we have learned from others.
as a Leather Family gives us a focused entity that helps us promote
our shared core beliefs and serve the BDSM community.
that although we make it a point not to take ourselves too seriously
we are extremely passionate about our lifestyle and protecting
it and those who wish to be part of it!
We hope our
Family website will become a valuable resource of information,
education and entertainment to the BDSM community but most of
all we hope to hear from and meet as many other wonderful people
as possible out lurking on the web. Please visit our contact
page and drop us a line anytime!
