Carter/Johnson Leather Library starts Leather Bar History Project

By January 14, 2014

Carter Johnson Library Web 325It is my distinct honor to join the Staff of the Carter/Johnson Leather Library for a very specific project. First, let me say - don't ever post on any social media site where Mama Viola Johnson might see it and read that you are bored and just have too much time on your hands…LOL - just saying.

The project that I am going to undertake is to begin to log the history of our Leather Bars, both past and present. No matter who we are, I think we can all relate to how valuable it was to have a place for groups and clubs to gather. Before more time passes and we lose the memories, I would like to catalog these special places that you remember and know the following:

1. How many Leather Bars are there? (Both past and present).


2. Where are they now located; or where were they located (addresses if you have them).

3. What is your recollection of how you or your club used this space; a few words about what it was like to be there.

In order to best do this, I am hoping to get one person from each state to be the gatherer of their state information. How that one person handles their own state either by personally doing it or delegating out sections of a state, is totally up to the State Rep. I just want to work with one person from each state for efficiency sake.

So if this little project tickles your interest, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I am also interested in collecting Leather Bar posters that you may have access to. Certainly the actual poster is great, but if you are not ready to part with it, a high resolution JPG would be just great. Maybe the state reps can also canvas the bars that are still around and see what treasures they might have on the walls or stored away.
