The Dignity Washington Defenders LLC Leather/Levi Club is a fellowship of gay men and women who share interest in leather, camaraderie, outreach, and Christian spirituality. As part of Dignity, the Defenders were formed to provide Leathermen and Leatherwomen, who are interested in spirituality, with a place for fellowship and support. The Defenders LLC of Dignity/Washington celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021.


Our Defenders LLC promotes leather, social, spiritual, charitable, and recreational activities for the Metro DC and Baltimore LGBT community. In the spirit of service and community building, the club raises money for and makes donations to worthy charitable causes such as Damien Ministries, Brother Help Thyself, and the Northern Virginia AIDS Ministry. The club holds its regular monthly meeting on the 3rd Thursday of each month, at 7:30 PM, via Zoom.
