SCLG was founded by pug with the aim of providing an opportunity for bdsm and leather folk to interact in a relaxed atmosphere, have fun and raise awareness about the size and diversity of the leather/bdsm groups within Southern California.
The actual idea of the picnic was first suggested when pug, inspired by an online discussion, mused about a "Leather Day in the Park" in a message she posted to the BDSM_West Yahoo message group in January 2002. Tremendous support and assistance was offered from others on that message board which gave pug the impetus to move forward with planning the event.
With the help and support of numerous people, the first SCLG took place on June 8, 2002 at Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas and had approximately 290 attendees.
Over the years SCLG has continued to thrive and grow while still retaining the relaxed, fun atmosphere it first started with. Come join the fun!
