Social & Meet-Up Groups
The KC Bear Mafia was started in 2009 as a way to get bears in Kansas City together for fun and good times. Since then we've formed an Official side to the Bear Mafia in order to have a greater opportunity to build and bring better resources for the bears and our allies in the Kansas City metro area.
If you think you're a bear, or you just like hanging around bears, this is the place for you! Everyone is welcome to join regardless of age, gender, body type or sexual orientation. While some events may be age restricted there are many that are not.
The Kansas City Pioneers Leather Levi Club was founded in 1975 as a social club for gay men. We are the longest active gay club/organization in Kansas City.
Promoting the leather lifestyle through :Community Service, Education, and Socials.
Early Kansas City Pioneer events included Leather Runs, which started in 1975 and is a tradition we continue to carry on today, campouts, and group motorcycle trips. The KC Pioneers responded to the AIDS crisis in the 80’s by focusing on fundraising to help our brothers and friends.
Through the years, the club has contributed to the local gay community by raising funds for local charities that support LGBTQ+ youth, HIV services, and anti-violence groups in the gay community. We have also worked with the bear community, MGRA rodeo, and KCPride on various projects and community outreach events. We look forward to helping out at future LGBT+ community opportunities.
In 2017, our group added a brand new educational program to our events in an effort to reach out to people who are just discovering and exploring their interests in the Leather and BDSM communities. The Kansas City Pioneers are focused around the needs and desires of the LGBT+ community in this world of straps, boots, and floggers. We welcome everyone to our events and group memberships.

Prime Timers Kansas City (PTKC) was founded in October 2002 with about 20 members. Members are older gay or bisexual men and younger adult men who admire mature men. We have grown to now enjoy the camaraderie of 52 members.
Despite popular opinion, the joys of the gay lifestyle need not stop at age 40, 60, 80, or older. We are men who choose to have their social lives enriched by participating in the diverse activities offered by our chapter. PTKC members come from all walks of life and get involved in the KC community through volunteerism, gay issues, arts, entertainment, and every other facet of healthy living. Some members work and others are retired, some are always on the go, and some enjoy the quiet company of others at home. Our members are business men and professionals. Some are fathers and caregivers. One thing is true of all PTKC members, they enjoy the opportunities and friendships they develop with Prime Timers locally and throughout the world.
Prime Timers of Kansas City is a member chapter of the Prime Timers Worldwide (PTWW) organization.
