Statement of Purpose
We gay men and lesbians of Panther L/L, Inc. are all members of the leather subculture and choose to stand together as brothers and sisters.
We strive to represent community and exemplify fellowship & harmony between the genders.
The supporting of charitable causes is fundamental to the existence of Panther L/L, Inc. We support others in time of need.
We stand for integrity of individuals and gay & lesbian families.
We support only safe, sane, and mutually consensual adult activities.
We value honor and take pride in who we are.
Panther L/L, Inc. is a leather/levi club consisting of men & women primarily of same sex orientation who have the same goals & interests and gather for fellowship & community service.
We spend time providing community service work and gathering for social activities. We have a monthly bar night at the Atlanta Eagle the fourth Saturday of each month from 10:00PM – 2:00AM. We have a monthly business meeting at 7:30 PM the Monday after each bar night at the Atlanta Eagle. Everyone is welcome to attend our business meetings.
The money that we raise from selling jello shots & bar tips at our bar night goes back into the community throughout the year. We select multiple charitable organizations each year that benefit our community as our beneficiaries. We have an annual Christmas toy drive in the fall each year.
Panther L/L was formed in May 1988 by members from the Charlotte Tradesmen who had moved to Atlanta. Since there was no leather levi oriented club they formed Panther L/L.
In the early 1990’s Panther L/L had a bar night at the Heretic twice a month. Panther L/L moved to the Atlanta Eagle in 2009 and started having a bar night on the second Friday of each month. In 2013 the Panther L/L bar night was moved to the fourth Saturday of the month.
In 2013 Panther L/L received the Pantheon of Leather Small Club Award for the year. Panther L/L was also honored by Positive Impact & the Mister program. The first Nightmare on Ponce haunted bar night was held in 2013. Panther L/L raised and donated more money than ever before in 2013 during the 25th anniversary year.
Over the years Panther L/L has donated to (in alphabetical order): Ahimsa House, Alphabet Soup, American Veterans for Equal Rights, Chris’ Rainbow House, Grady Pediatric AIDS Unit, Hearts Everywhere Reaching Out for the children (H.E.R.O.), Hurricane Katrina Victims, Jerusalem House, Lost & Found Youth, Pets Are Loving Support (PALS), Pets Are Worth Saving (PAWS), Project Open Hand, Shepherd Pathways, & The Names Project.
Panther L/L holds a toy drive in the fall with toys being donated to Dekalb County.
