GearUp Weekend is an annual retreat where the next generation of kinky/kink-curious guys and leathermen can socialize with, learn from, and play with other men of all ages in a safe and friendly environment.
Our goal is to create a community in the San Francisco Bay Area that welcomes all men, including trans men, of all levels of experience. In addition to the annual retreat, GearUp hosts play parties and other events throughout the year.
We use “Leathermen” to mean all kinks and fetishes! At GearUp Weekend you’ll find guys into all kinds of gear (such as leather, rubber, sports gear, uniforms, spandex, underwear) and all kinds of kinky activities – pup play, bondage, domination and submission, S&M, mummification, flogging, fisting, chastity, roleplay, and more.
