EA206 - Earned Leather, Gifted Leather, Leather Identity

Half of the leather community seems to be wanting to “earn” their leathers, and the other half does not feel qualified to “gift” leathers. Scotty Thomson and Katie Fulcrum join Lee Harrington in this passionate discussion about what leather means, leather identity, and getting turned on amidst a culture of tribal customs. Along the way the council of elders votes on a few issues, laughter is shared, and hearts are poured out for the world.
