On Friday November 25th, 2011 history will be made. The Leather Masked Ball SIX will be held for the first time in the heart of Wilton Manors at BOOM Nightclub! Bringing this well-established charity event to the heart of “the gayborhood” is a huge advance for Leather Men’s Brotherhood, the 501 (c) 3 organization that produces the ball.

leather-masked-ball-VI-1“It just makes sense to have this event, which benefits LGBT organizations, in our backyard” says Pete Trimble, LMB 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.”

There will be three DJs in three spaces, a separate VIP lounge, outdoor chill area off the main floor, and hundreds of geared up leatherfolk getting down and sweaty.

The VIP lounge will be the place to be! Located in the former ICON storefront, the VIP lounge has BOOM’s own DJ Richie Rich working up a sweat! VIP’s party with complimentary cocktails courtesy of Bud Light, Pisco Porton and Zyr Vodka, and hors d’oeuvres provided by The Courtyard CafĂ©. The VIP lounge also has two bootblacks on duty, a puppy play pen and a full schedule of BDSM entertainment.

The main floor is sure to be a musical journey with DJ/Producer John LePage from San Francisco. John’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.

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 two bootblacks ready to shine your soles.

Event parking is available at The Pride Center with complimentary shuttle service. Be prepared to show your ticket for entrance to the parking area.

Tickets are General Admission $30 in advance/$35 at door; VIP $45 in advance, $50 at door. Tickets are available at Leatherwerks Main Store and at the Ramrod, Tropixx Video and Gaymart, and online at Leathermaskedball.org.

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.

This year’s grants will bring the total contributions to non profits from the Leather Masked Ball to over $110,000.

Annual Leather Masked Ball ticket sales as well as other events and generous corporate sponsorships have made this possible. LMB relies on donations of services like advertising from media outlets like Hotspots and Genre Latino as well as support from the all-volunteer LMB organization to keep overhead and expenses at a minimum.

Leather Men’s Brotherhood (Lambda Men’s Brotherhood Inc) is recognized by the IRS as a non-profit organization and is licensed as a fundraising entity in the state of Florida.
