Even though the core of Leather culture is social life, COVID-19 will not be the end of Leather culture, because Leather is permanent. Leather folk who know their history realize what it takes to make it through an epidemic. Hard work, self-sacrifice, generosity, patience – those are some of the human qualities needed to get through this. When social life resumes, Leather folk will find their ways to be safely, consensually themselves. Leather List will be there to continue uniting us all.
