UK Leather and Fetish Archive

The UK Leather and Fetish Archive is dedicated to documenting and celebrating the history and heritage of the leather, rubber, kink, BDSM and fetish community in the UK.

The Archive started in 2016 with the deposit of the records of numerous gay/bi male UK leather clubs and has since expanded to hold the archives of organisations, clubs and individuals of all sexualities, gender identities and kink persuasions. We also hold an extensive collection of books, pamphlets and magazines documenting UK fetish history from the early 1900s to the present day.

We are always looking to develop the archive and welcome donations of archival material, ephemera, magazines, photos...anything that you feel documents your kink history! Do get in touch.
