10 things about leather in Atlanta – even with the Eagle on a break

Add this share
What’s so great about leather? Let us count the ways. Even while Atlanta Eagle works out its next move, there’s plenty to love about the scene and the locals who make it special, including a new monthly brunch at Woofs Atlanta.

In fact, the new event tops our list of 10 reasons to check out Atlanta’s LGBTQ leather scene:


Sir, yes, sir! With Eagle on break, Woofs now does a Leather Luncheon every third Sunday, beginning this week. It’s just one of the best LGBTQ things to do in Atlanta this week.

The Unknown

If you’re always seeing the same people, shake things up with a new view.


Far from clone wars, leather events embrace more gender expressions, body types, demographics and queer archetypes than other LGBTQ circles.


It’s not the gear, but the welcoming attitude that makes the queer leather community so appealing.

Head Games

Roleplaying and fantasy scenes can heighten pleasure. Experiment with your own psychology.

Walk on Your Wild Side

Let go of restrictions and see what you find. Others are into that one thing that’s always been in the back of your mind.

Body Positive

Welcome to the birthplace of the bear, otter, cub, wolf and pig communities, where more than one beauty standard reigns.

Self Empowerment

Whether it’s because the gear makes you feel like a badass, or a harness focuses your superpowers, leather can embolden your confidence.

Sensory Overload

You don’t necessarily have to be into BDSM to enjoy the sensations of this particular textile against the skin.

Rock Out

Embrace the scene that metal icons Judas Priest and others specifically cite as their inspiration – long before JP’s lead singer came out.

The feature also ran in Q ATLus Magazine. Read the new issue in full here:
