Patty was on the boards of the So You Want to Be Kinky educational series and the International Ms Leather Foundation. She ran the Surge Event Series for leather/kinky women and trans people in Toronto and created the “Surge: Images of Power & Pleasure” calendar as fundraiser. She has presented workshops on mummification and spanking and has co-hosted experiential “novice nights”.  Patty also co-developed and presented a workshop on suicide/mental health first aid for the puppy and kink/leather communities.

As IMsL 2014, she traveled and connected with leather, bootblack, rubber, puppy, pony and kinky folks of all persuasions. She continues to work on behalf of Rainbow Railroad raising funds to help lgbt individuals find safe haven from state sanctioned violence, murder and persecution.

Patty was awarded the 2012 Heart of the Flag Federation Volunteer of the Year Award, the 2015 Heart of the Flag Federation Leather Pride Award, and two Pantheon of Leather Awards (Woman of the Year 2015, Community Choice Woman 2015).
