Mission Statement and Overview
Blackout Leather Production‘s primary purpose is to promote the welfare, health, and education of those communities that fall under the LGBTQ+ / Leather/ SM / Fetish umbrella and to eliminate prejudice against those communities.
Formed in 1997 by a prominent group of Portland Leathermen to revive the Oregon State Leather titles, BLP has returned to the community tradition of serving and supporting Oregon’s expanding sexual minorities communities through fund-raising and other events.
Blackout Leather Productions is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization comprised of volunteers from Oregon & SW Washington’s leather community. We are not a membership-based organization. BLP is honored to own the Mr., Ms., and Mx. Oregon State Leather, Oregon State Bootblack, and Oregon State Puppy titles and we are a proud participant in organizing Oregon’s Leather Pride Week in August of each year.
