Join Us in Celebrating 25 Years of The Exiles!

Dearest Exiles Members and our Extended Community,

We are thrilled to invite you to a remarkable milestone in our journey. As you know, The Exiles, as we stand today, is your favorite 501(c)3 women- and queer-centered educational organization, and it's time to celebrate 25 years! 

Our history, a symphony of education, desire, and evolution, traces back from the kinksters of Samois to the playful perverts of the Outcasts, culminating in The Exiles we are today. We have stood proudly as a beacon of Leather/BDSM education for the most daring, delicious deviants of San Francisco, fostering a safe space for exploration, camaraderie, and empowerment through education for women and genderqueers. 

We are here to commemorate not only our 25 years but also the remarkable history and individuals who paved the way for us over the decades. We owe our success to the dedicated and titillating rebels who volunteered their time and passion. From Exiles Leaders to Presenters to Volunteers to every Member of The Exiles is a part of this legacy.

Mark your calendars, spread the word, and get ready to revel in 25 years of history, growth, and the boundless future of The Exiles!

In Leather Love and Service,

the Exiles 🖤

What Awaits You at Our 25th Anniversary Rendezvous:

Join us on the first weekend of December, where desire and nostalgia intertwine in a weekend that will leave you breathless. 

Friday, we will kick off the weekend supporting the Ms. SF Leather Relaunch Party at the SF Eagle during Queer Leather Happy Hour. There, you will find Exiles volunteers adorned as sexy, naughty elves or lovely Pagan fairies. 

Saturday will include sensuous catered small bites by the enigmatic Mama Bear's Kitchen, tantalizing your taste buds. Witness the crowning moments as our Exiles Steering Committee bestows awards upon those who've ignited our passions. The Bootblacks (including Innocent, our '23 Northwest Bootblack), masters of their craft, will ensnare you in their siren call. Allow them to worship your Leather as you discover new pleasures. The enchanting lens of Maeve, our sultry photographer, will immortalize our electrifying celebration. Star Love, our emcee of seduction, will host enchanting performances from Alotta Boutte, Sydni Deveraux, High Note, and Mocha Fapallate that will ignite your innermost desires. 

As Sunday dawns, indulge in a 25th Anniversary Play Party (labor provided by House of Fire) with captivating demos that explore desires and boundaries. It's a journey to the heart of temptation, where your deepest cravings become reality.
