Rhode Island Pride Weekend started on Friday night for the Northeast Leather Family when the Leather Boys of New England hosted Boys Ahoy at the Providence Eagle Block Party. There were raffles, demos and a cookout. Fun night for everyone in attendance.
On Saturday, the Pride street fair was in full swing despite the excessive heat and humidity, in addition to a plethora of events and activities to take in throughout the city of Providence.
As daylight began to fade, the main event was taking shape…
The Northeast Leather Titleholders and other current Titleholders from around the area were invited to ride the float sponsored by The Providence Eagle. Sir Seth, Bootblack Pup Philthy, and Northeast Leatherboy 1st runner up, Nelson waved to the enormous crowds throughout the parade route. They were joined by Mr Boston Leather, Matt Morse, Mr Connecticut Leather, KJ Nichols, Mr FLAG, Cory Gra, and Mr Oneida Leather, Boy Ken.
Immediately following the parade was the block party at the Providence Eagle.
The crowd was phenomenal!! It was one solid mass of bodies inside and outside of the Eagle, but everyone was enjoying themselves. There was a slave auction, food and drinks, and Pup Philthy was blacking all evening.
None of the Title family made it to The Providence Eagle on Sunday for Tea Dance. The earlier weekend events had taken their toll on us, It was a weekend none of us shall soon forget!
