History was made this year on April 3 at the Off Sunset Festival in Los Angeles, CA. The first three years of the festival saw exclusively men’s groups sponsoring booths and activities, but 2016 was host to a more inclusive festival as Off Sunset welcomed its first women’s group into the fold.
The Southland Title Sisters (STS), a group of female-identified titleholders from los angeles County through San Diego County, were out in force to support the festival along with Ms LA Leather 2016, Moon O’Neal, Ms San Diego Leather 2015, Annette Suarez, and Ms San Francisco Leather 2016, Stela Furtado, among others.
The festival, founded in 2013, is produced by the Off Sunset Association, “a group of individuals who work, live, and play in the Silver Lake area” of los angeles.
Shae Flanagan, founding member and President of STS, had this to say, “It was an honor to join our brothers this year and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again next year. This first year out, we were still getting the lay of the land, but with the incredible support of the Southland Title Sisters we had an amazing time keeping folks hydrated with lemonade and water balloon fights and will back with more of both. If you don't know us, come say hi, we look forward to meeting you!”
