FAQs

What should I wear?
We love to see leather, but feel free to wear what ever you would like. 

Who is welcome to come?
We welcome everyone from the leather and kink communities to join us for our monthly L&L socials. You don’t have to be a member of a club.

What is the cost of the Event?
There is no cost to participate in the virtual social. Seeing our friends is all the currency we need.

Black Lives Matter

To our communities,

The Atons of Minneapolis are in solidarity with everyone demanding justice for George Floyd, and fighting generations of systemic racism and police brutality. We firmly believe that Black Lives Matter. We encourage everyone in our LGBTQA+ and leather/kink communities to take a visible and tangible stand against racism today. 

As we begin Pride month, we reflect on the rights we have won and lost in the last 51 years since the Stonewall Riot. We know painfully well that no battle for equality is ever complete as long as there are people who wish to oppress others and deny our shared humanity.

We hope that everyone is at least ok today. It has been an extra tense week, and whether you were protesting the murder of George Floyd by four officers in the Minneapolis Police Department in person or watching the protests from afar, the toll on our minds and bodies can be intense. Please take a moment for yourself every day to recenter and gather energy for the work we all need to do.

Yours in leather,
Andrew Bertke
President, Atons of Minneapolis

Pandemic Update

All of us in the Atons hope that our members, associates, and friends are safe and healthy during this COVID-19 pandemic. At our April Atons teleconference meeting, we discussed what this crisis means to our club.

It is hard to be a social club during social distancing. Because we can’t foresee when it will be safe for us to gather again, we have paused all plans for any social events through at least the end of summer. This pause means no L&L dinners, no Cigar Smokers, and no EROS party. We also anticipate other more significant leather events rescheduling for the fall that may conflict with our dates. Unfortunately, this means that we have canceled our plans to host a leather run in September.

As a result of our decision to not host any social events for the foreseeable future, we have reduced our membership and associate dues to $0 until such time that we can resume hosting social events. Any member or associate dues already paid will be prorated.

We look forward to seeing all of you again soon when it is safe to do so.

Yours in leather,
Andrew Bertke
President, Atons of Minneapolis
