In January 1977, 13 men got together in a small apartment on 2nd Street in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to talk about forming a leather social club for folks in the area. Some in the group were familiar with other leather clubs that had been formed in the Mid-Atlantic region, such as Washington’s Centaur MC (founded in 1970), the Philadelphians MC (founded in 1974), and the ShipMates Club of Baltimore (also founded in 1974).
Lucky Butch, a Pennsylvania resident, is a person who prefers being in the background. She doesn’t want the spotlight and shies away from being the center of attention. She assists in the leather community in so many ways – helping coordinate silent auctions, tending bar for the Philadelphia Women’s Leather Bar Nights she helped co-found, and attending various events around the region. Once you get a chance to meet her, you find an engaging person who cares deeply for her family, friends, and the communities she serves.
