MS1987-1

Kick off your Up Your Alley festival weekend with our screening of the first-ever International Ms. Leather competition of 1987. Media preservationist John Raines presents an hour-long video highlighting the excitement, thrills, and laughs of this playful romp held at San Francisco’s long-vanished DV8 Lounge. Since its inception in 1987, International Ms. Leather has become a fixture in the leather and lesbian communities and an annual sibling to Chicago’s International Mr. Leather contest.
