What we're about

Due to the guidelines released by the CDC and the state of California, the SF Citadel cannot, in good conscience, continue to keep our doors open. At this time, we are cancelling all events until further notice. In the coming week, we will be releasing more information about our closure, ways you as a community member can help keep local event spaces and other kink/leather community business afloat, and ways that we are hoping to help keep our community members virtually supported, connected, entertained and educated during this indeterminate period of social distancing, sweeping closures and quarantine. Please stay safe, be gentle with one another and do your best to keep the spirit of our community alive.

The SF CITADEL's mission is to provide a safe space for alternative lifestyles, cultural and leather events We also provide other resources to individuals, associations and communities who identify with having different ways of expressing their proclivities. We want to create a safe place to meet, explore and share enjoyment, happiness, laughter and pleasure within these communities locally and nationally.

Inclusivity

We are open to all human players. We warmly welcome everyone regardless of race, creed, color, sexual orientation or gender identification. This is a place for all individuals to gather with other like-minded individuals to explore alternative aspect of their identities. We strive to provide a safe space and will continue to do the best that we can to create, promote and enforce safety and freedom to personal expression.
