South Virginia Pups and Handlers Association (SVA-PAH) is a group that is dedicated to those that human-pup, and those that love them. This is a place for pups, handlers, and people curious about pup play on the East Coast. We are a group in the Tidewater Area of Virginia that was formed to fill a void for those into the Pup and Handler Lifestyle with no organized community to call their own. SVA-PAH is devoted to educating people about what pup play is, as well as providing a close-knit family feel for all members to feel free to be who they are!
SVA-PAH is an LGBTQ-Friendly social club that is open to members who are at least 18 years of age. You can join the Pups and Handlers at MJ's Tavern on the 1st Saturday of the month! We usually have a mosh pit and sell Jello shots!
The Imperial Court of Washington, DC (ICWDC) mission is to raise funds for organizations, including but not limited to those supporting just the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender community: HIV/AIDS services organizations, social service organizations, and youth enrichment programs. We seek to provide a safe, social environment for people with the same interest as those of the membership and to create and promote positive community awareness of the ideals of the International Court System.
Our members are dedicated to the causes and charities chosen by our organization. Our two-fold mission encompasses both social and philanthropic arenas. Moreover, as serious as we are about our role in our community, we cannot deny that many of us also participate in the frivolity and creative outlet the Court encourages.
“From the Heart, Through the Court, For the Community!”
VIRGINIA LEATHERWOMEN UNITED's mission is to establish a group that reflects a diversity of all women and non-binary individuals, interested or involved in the Leather culture and BDSM, and to provide a safe atmosphere where members can gather, play, communicate, be empowered, exchange ideas and varying perspectives and socialize while nourishing a sense of siblinghood and camaraderie within the Club and the community.
Our mission extends to the community at large, in that VIRGINIA LEATHERWOMEN UNITED seeks to foster a better understanding and appreciation of the lifestyle among the members of the Club and within the community, through attending social, charitable, and educational endeavors and activities, and to provide support as a siblinghood, when possible, to local and regional Leather/BDSM community-based organizations or events.
The Virginia House of Trans Is a community-based Leather and Levi group founded by Trans people for Trans people with loving support from our allies. We give the community a true sense of “Home” and “Fellowship” from all across the LGBTQ+ spectrum with a primary focus on Trans people and their evolution of truth, and core values of the Leather and Levi lifestyle.
We aim to build Equity and Equality within our community while giving people a safe space to breathe and call home If they’ve never been provided one. We’re Activists, Advocates, Educators, and ever Evolving community partners!
We aim to be as inclusive and diverse as the spectrum allows while providing support back to our community which helps us stand together.
