You only know your future, when you know your history
The words written above Fetish Underground’s Entrance were translated and printed on all invitations for the Grand Opening of Amsterdam’s brand new fetish store. The event itself took place on Wednesday, November 2nd, and was part of the Get Ruff – Amsterdam Leather Pride program. Male and Female, gay and straight customers, colleagues and friends joined the owners and staff for a festive evening to celebrate the opening of a new addition to Amsterdam’s fetish scene.
For the future of the foundation
In the week leading up to FU’s opening and fundraiser, the LeatherHistory.eu Foundation suffered a backlash with its website being hacked. The timing couldn’t have been worse, as Pieter travelled to Hamburg to discuss leather history and the foundation the week before:
“Last week I was amazed by how support for the foundation and its work has grown on an international level over the past year – our first year! This week I’m amazed by the support from the community at home. As a foundation, we owe much to the owner’s of Fetish Underground and all those who donated to our cause. With this money we can implement the changes we discussed in Hamburg such as, deepening our content and strengthening relations within the EU fetish community, and take the next steps towards improving the preservation of European leather history.”
