About Albuquerque Leather Daddys

About

Albuquerque Leather Daddys is an informal group of men who share friendship and an affinity for the Leather BDSM lifestyle.  We are men from all walks of life, and as such, we place the confidentiality of our group and our event guests as one of our priorities.  We hold various events throughout the year, some private by invitation only, some open to the public.  We hold fund-raisers for our chosen charities.  When we have private or public events, in our group, and in our events, we hold to the ideals of fraternity, respect, trust, service to the community and confidentiality of our members and members of the public who attend any of our events.  We expect guests at our events to hold to these ideals out of respect for our ideals and goals, for the Daddys as a group, for our host facility, wherever it may be, and for our guests who attend our events. We represent and promote the Leather, Kink, Fetish, BDSM community and lifestyle with dignity and respect, in and around the Albuquerque, New Mexico area.  We welcome all ages (18 or older), races, colors, body styles, religions, all experience levels.

Missions / Purpose

Missions of the Albuquerque Leather Daddys are fellowship, education, community, and service.

Fellowship

Albuquerque Leather Daddys provides a social environment of support and fraternity by hosting events around the Leather, Kink, Fetish, and BDSM community which provide connection and social intimacy.  Events that bring together old and new friends include mixers, munches, entertainment, training, and contests where individuals can meet, talk, exchange ideas and feelings, and socialize in a supportive environment. We encourage honorable, ethical, and dignified behavior, and inclusion.  We agree to leave bad moods outside and have gatherings that are fun, peaceful, joyful, light-hearted, and diverse.

Education

Albuquerque Leather Daddys provides education and training to our membership and community about our focus on a safe, sane, and consensual environment and lifestyle.  Various events for the curious to experienced are held to convey knowledge about this lifestyle.

Community

Albuquerque Leather Daddys provides support and service to our membership and related organizations in our region and beyond that focus on Leather, Kink, Fetish, BDSM, and the LGBTQ community.  We wish to create understanding and support between the members of the broader Leather, Kink, Fetish, and BDSM community and organizations.

Service

Albuquerque Leather Daddys provides service to our community and charitable organizations through fund-raising events and volunteering.

History

History of the Leather Daddys starts with its predecessor group, New Mexico Leather Wolves.  This group existed from about 2004-2008.  It was founded by a number of men including Wes Lockwood, Major, Dennis Schoeckel, Glen Wade, Ruben Gallegos, and Scott Smith.  Entertainment in the form of charity shows were one of its primary public activities.  This group eventually disbanded. Some members of this group continued to perform successful charity shows and other events in the community.  People asked the name of the organization producing these shows, and the membership decided to form the Albuquerque Leather Daddys in 2009.  Founding members included Matt Christian, Dupree Charlie, Ruben Gallegos, Rex Swanda, Ken Chavez, Martin Clark, John Skelton, Charles Ceigh, Major, Dennis Schmoeckel, Glen Wade, and Cory Gaeth. Albuquerque Leather Daddys logo was created on 10 February 2011, signed by “D. Dupree Charley.”  Through this time, the Daddys primary public meeting place was “The Ranch” which changed ownership and was renamed “Sidewinders.”  At that time the Daddys had a separate internal Leather Bar within this establishment that included a full bar and leather-themed murals and pictures on the walls.  Various changes in ownership there diminished leather community involvement in that bar, which took a turn for the better more recently when ownership transferred to Michael Estacio- Burdick and Renato (Renèe) Estacio-Burdick. Continuing to produce shows for the community and charity, about 2013, the Leather Daddys established Gear Night, held at Sidewinders Bar as a more regular leather community event.  A Facebook page was established.  Daddys also established “Leather Curious” nights to help those new or curious about the leather scene to learn skills where those with knowledge and skills could also pass down knowledge to future generations.  In 2017, the Munch Meet & Greet was revitalized by SIR Magnum as another way to outreach to a broader segment of the leather community and a website was established.
