It is with no small degree of sadness that I announce the unanimous decision by a quorum of members at tonight’s Special General Meeting to disincorporate Victorian Leather Inc. after over a decade of service to the community.
Our website and social media platforms will be deactivated in three weeks, and our remaining funds will be donated to the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives, along with some organisational ephemera, including photos and banners.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the past founding committee members, particularly those who founded the organisation, and the colleagues who have served alongside me over the past 18 months - thank you for your support, energy, enthusiasm, hard work, insight, knowledge, generosity, and example; it has been an honour to work with people who live their Leather values every day, through thick and thin.
Yours in Leather,
Tara Nipe, President
On behalf of the 2019/20 VLI committee
