Leather Perspectives is a monthly event sponsored by NLA-Dallas. NLA-Dallas is a DFW based organization focused on the education of those interested in and/or living the leather/SM/fetish lifestyle. As a gateway leather club, NLA-Dallas is open to people of all walks of life regardless of orientation or identification. We invite you to join us for a General Membership meeting on the first Tuesday of each month, a Leather Perspectives on the fourth Saturday of each month, or an Advanced Workshop each quarter.


Ms Boots has been involved in the BDSM and Leather lifestyle for well over 30 years, and started her journey as a submissive, or as she later learned the distinction, a bottom. It was this start that gives Ms Boots a greater insight into the different perspective of the submissive/bottom mindset. Ms Boots feels that one needs a strong mind and perhaps a few wicked thoughts to successfully lead a submissive on a wonderful journey. “It takes a strong man to know himself well enough to get on his knees before me.” This is the basic principle that Ms Boots follows in her interaction with the male submissive.

Ms Boots has been active in the DFW area Leather and BDSM community for many years. She is Ms. South Central Leather Woman 2007 and also NLA-International Woman of the Year 2008. She has served on the Executive Committee of NLA-Dallas for several years as Social Director. She was Co-Director for Beyond Vanilla 15 and 16 and served on the board for several years. Ms Boots founded The Bound Rose Society, 16 years ago, which has evolved into a hands-on educational organization. She has also served as a mentor with the Dallas Mentors Group mentoring both submissive and dominants. In the past she has held several elected positions which include Social Director for NLA-Dallas; Vice Chair for The North Texas Council of Clubs (NTXCC) and member-at-large for National Leather Association-International (NLA-I). She was a member of the Awards Committee for NLA-I and the first organizer of the Silent Auction for Women’s International Leather Fest.

As a proud member of Mama’s Family, Ms Boots is a crusader of getting more lifestyle/leather people involved in their local communities. Ms Boots feels that if we don’t give something back to our community everything our elders have worked for will fade away. This community was available for us when we began our journey, and we need to do our part to help sustain it for others to enjoy in the future. “We must share our knowledge with those coming into the lifestyle so that this way of life will continue to grow.” With this thought in mind, Ms Boots has shared her knowledge and expertise through numerous demos and classes on a variety of topics. She has personally mentored many to help them gain a better understanding of their place in the culture.

Ms Boots resides in Fort Worth, Texas, living in the house her boy of many years, Randy, left for her to live out her life. Her favorite play toy is the violet wand, followed close with mind fucks and sensory deprivation. When all three components come together in one scene it is a hot time in the city. She has taught several classes; Cupping; Violet Wand; Negotiations; Kink for Dinner; Duct Tape; The Development of Bodily Senses, and Perverted Penny Pinching.

She is currently focusing her energy on personal health issues and is on a volunteer staff for The Sanctuary of Lifestyles Art. Walking in both the Leather and BDSM lifestyles has many different rewards, each unique with their own protocols and attitudes.

On a personal side note, I would like to thank all the people who have supported me over the years. My outspoken opinions were not always the popular responses, but I am gratefully to be associated with people who believe in diversity and freedom, not only of speech but of actions. The Leather community has evolved from my first ‘biker’ experiences to a group of people that support others to be true to themselves and to live what some people only talk about. Thank You! Ms Boots
