I wrote in December about our 12x12 Pledge, to encourage people to go out and visit their leather bars more, and I'm pleased that that's been taken up by many people, including some venues who've been using the logo we created on their publicity.
We've now also made a small change to the BLUF website which I hope will help people find events to attend more easily. Most of the content on the BLUF site is only visible to members, and until now that's included our Events Calendar.
I'm pleased to say that we now have a public version of that, which you can view at www.bluf.com/events. This calendar shows all our public BLUF events, as well as other events that we think our members may be interested in, though its focus is strictly on community-based events with a strong leather interest, not big commercial parties.
The events featured are primarily those organised by BLUF members themselves, alongside such staples as IML, Folsom Europe and CLAW. If you have an event that you think ought to be included, please do drop me a line.
We've also added a gallery of event posters alongside the listing, and details of some events are available in German and/or French too.
Obviously, it's impossible to create a comprehensive calendar of every leather event, but I do hope that people find our list useful - and hope to see many of you, whether BLUF members or not - at some of the BLUF events organised around the world.
