The primary purpose of Tri-State Leather*Pup*Rubber is to bring together the Leather /Kink, Rubber and Pup communities of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky to promote a positive image of the Leather/BDSM/Fetish lifestyle, specifically in the Tri-State area. It brings together the leather communities in such a way as to exchange ideas, promote events, provide support and education to the leather clubs and groups within and outside the region. Our goals are: 1) To increase awareness about Tri-State Leather and its mission, 2) To educate those within and outside of the Leather/Kink Community about safer, consent based sex practices, 3) To raise monies for local, state and national organizations and or service providers that provide for the needs of the LGBTQ community and its supporters, 4)  To generate funds for the Tri-State Contest Weekend
