Sydney Leathermen aka SLM is a social group formed to create affinity spaces for male and male identifying Leather Men. The Founding SLM team spent two years speaking with community members before launching SLM with a vision of creating safe and social spaces for likeminded leathermen to gather, socialse, bond and build a stronger leather brotherhood.

SLM takes inspiration from similar Leathermen groups locally and internationally. SLM aims to provide opportunities for social interaction, bonding and growth for likeminded leather men through regular social events. SLM founding committee members were envious of the Cigar and Leather culture so popular overseas and lacking in Australia so have created several unique and regular events that have proved quite popular. SLM is is also proud to be an integral part of the return of Mr Sydney Leather contest in 2023.

SLM welcomes those new, aspiring or curious to the Leathermen scene and aim to provide a friendly, welcoming and safe environment for them to become involvedĀ  and confidently make a decision if the leather scene is right for them.

All members of this group are expected to adhere to a set of rules. It is a condition of being part of this group that you understand the rules and most importantly adhere to the group rules at all times.
