ONYX Pearls NY-Northeast holds a variety of public events in the New York Metro area to help Educate, Explore, and Empower those in the lifestyle including: Educational Events, Munches in NY and NJ, and Bar Nights. Unless specifically stated, our Public Events are open to all allies regardless of gender or race. In fact we welcome our allies! Our events often include fundraising activities for charitable non-profit organizations that align with our mission. In addition, ONYX Pearls NY-Northeast is involved in a number of larger events throughout the region including Folsom East, NJ Pride Parade, NYC Pride Parade, Black Pride, and NJ Leather Contest.
As a broader Leather Community made up of many different clubs and chapters, we continue to strive to create Safe Spaces. In these Safe Spaces (see list below) we are free to express ourselves, our interests, our sexuality, our kinks without judgement no matter sexual or gender identity, race, religion, or kink interests. This full acceptance—not often found in our vanilla lives—creates a sense of freedom and a shared experience with one another. Each of us are responsible to help cultivate a space of acceptance for our Leather Sisters and Brothers.

Munches & Socials
Get to Know ONYX Pearls NY-NE
Vanilla-type meetups typically held at a restaurant or bar that is open to the general kink community. Munches are meant as a doorway for newbies and other leather/kink members to socialize with the host organization and get to know the organization’s members, values, and goals.
