The National Leather Association - Houston was established for the leather/BDSM/Fetish community to have an organization dedicated to service. This service comes in various areas including education in order to dispel stereotypes, misconceptions, and media misrepresentation about the Leather/BDSM/Fetish family in the community at large. We are here to build, strengthen and defend individuals, organizations, publications, and businesses within our community against threats to their freedom of expression, freedom of the press, the right of free association and right to equal protection under the law.
NLA-Houston does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, handicaps, or other minorities who have been traditionally discriminated against or poorly represented in the Leather/BDSM/Fetish community. We also fight for the decriminalization of all sexual acts between consenting adults and preserve a record of our history, traditions, and culture.
Above all: Safe, Sane and Consensual.
