Defender’s Mass on January 15

The Defender’s Philosophy

We believe that Christian LGBT persons, who are into
Leather/Levi, can express their sexuality in a manner
consistent with Christ’s teachings hence the name
“Defenders.” We represent another
face of Catholicism and defend our right
to express ourselves in a variety of ways.

Leather is an integral part of our being as well as our spirituality.
We believe it would be hypocritical to deny our affinity for leather and the
images connoted by it.

It would be just as hypocritical to ignore
our spiritual side when we wear
our leather. Just as Jesus challenged the traditional limits
of religion in His day, we believe
our role challenges the traditional
concept of religion today.
