About GearUp Weekend

GearUp is a primarily San Francisco Bay Area-based group of gay male kinksters and fetish enthusiasts centered around our annual retreat, GearUp Weekend. The retreat, at Saratoga Springs Retreat Center in northern California, is 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. We also host regular events and play parties throughout the year.

Our goal is to provide education and community in the San Francisco Bay Area that welcomes all men, including trans men, of all levels of experience.

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 – domination and submission, fisting, pup play, watersports, chastity, roleplay, and more.
