2018 Sponsorship

Minnesota Leather Pride is a community organization that strives to promote and support the Leather and Kink communities. We do this by fostering community, offering events and space to be themselves for the Leather, Kink Clubs, and Organizations in Minnesota.

Minnesota Leather Pride had a great 2017. We threw several successful events. We had leather bar trivia in the fall, and coffee busts featuring local groups throughout the year. We put together a great contest weekend in April and sashed three new title holders in our community. We had a strong presence at our booth for Pride in the Park last year and carrying the Leather Pride Flag in the Pride Parade down Hennepin Ave. None of these things would have been possible without the support of the clubs, organizations, and businesses in our community. We’d like to continue that support and foster the leather community in Minnesota, and to do this we are asking for your help. We are asking you to consider sponsoring Minnesota Leather Pride. This year we are offering four levels of sponsorship:

$75 Sponsorship

In addition to the above Benefits and Commitments we also have some expectations of our sponsors:

  • Foster the combined Leather and Kink and Leather/Kink adjacent communities of Minnesota
  • Fulfill the commitments of your sponsorship level
  • MNLP needs at least 60 days’ notice for assistance with events
  • Your group will not publicly defame or degrade Minnesota Leather Pride or any of its works
  • Your group will not publicly defame other MNLP sponsors
  • To have any June Pride events (whether for your sponsorship commitment or other) promoted as a part of Pride Month all details must be sent to MNLP by May 15th. There will be no exceptions

We know that is a lot of information, we also know that many organizations may not have the funding/membership available to be able to reach one of these sponsorship levels. Outside of official sponsorships, we welcome any assistance that can be provided through volunteering and other event-specific opportunities (Pride in the Park booth set up and tear down for example). Please send a note to sponsor@mnleatherpride.org with the contact information for your group, and we will make sure you stay in the loop on events and other volunteer needs.

Without your valuable support, we couldn’t provide the same quality leather events and a fantastic Pride weekend!

Sponsorships need to be finalized and turned into the board by May 1st2018. Please email us at sponsor@mnleatherpride.org with any questions. We can accept sponsorship donations in person (cash, check, or credit card) or check sent to the address below, or via our online store. 

Thank you,

2018 Sponsorship Committee &
Holly Kraft, MNLP President
