History

TightRope was an East Coast leather/alternative sexuality members-only social club officially registered in 1997. Membership was made up primarily of men who enjoyed wearing leather, denim and uniforms. The society promoted a safe and consensual environment in which to explore gay sexuality, holding bar nights and fundraisers as well as organizing activities such as camping, hiking and Biker/Leather runs. TightRope sometimes fielded a candidate for MacLeather. It held its final AGM and meeting in November 2007. The society's "colours"—a banner made of leather—was framed and hung at MenzBar and later transferred to SeaDogs, which became TorpedoSaunaAndSpa.
