The Club is an organization of gay or bisexual men who wear leather, subscribe to and promote the leather lifestyle, and engage in BDSM, which includes a variety of erotic practices involving dominance and submission, role-playing, restraint, pain-pleasure and tactile play, and other interpersonal dynamics. The purpose of the Club is to provide an atmosphere of fraternization, mutual emotional support, and friendship, and to create a safe space to learn, to watch, to engage, to ask questions, and mostly to have fun! The Club also provides a means of communication among its members and members of the leather community in general. We educate members about the leather lifestyle and make them aware of safe sex practices.

We meet publicly for "Bar Night" the last Saturday of each month at Club XYZ in Knoxville starting between 8 and 9 pm. Many of us will have our "colors" (Gryphons' club patches) on our vests. Join us wearing your leather, harnesses, uniforms or other fetish wear as you dare! Sunday May 5th is our next free monthly cookout (but donations always welcome!) at Club XYZ starting at 7 pm.

We meet privately each month at a member's home, usually the night of the second Saturday. Attendees are the members, their guests, and people interested in the club whom we have met and who attend as a guest of a member they know. Attendees may also engage in other BDSM activitie after the demos, all of which is voluntary and consensual.

We have two events at Timberfell Lodge each summer. We help host Camp Bear in June and our "Deliverance" event in July.
