Description: The Defenders Leather Levi Club is a group who value and wish to celebrate both their leather “lifestyle” and their Christian spirituality. Contrary to common belief, the two are not mutually exclusive. The Defenders believe that the leather experience can, when integrated and spiritually informed, actually produce a richer spirituality, and help the Church. The club strives to provide a space that leathermen and leatherwomen will find welcoming and familiar, yet unique in its spiritual dimension.
