OH WOW! It’s a big week for leather events! Check out what’s going on and make it a point to come out to support good causes, get good gear and skills, and have some fun with your brothers.
First up on Thursday, Feb 10th, from 7pm-10pm is the charity event LOVE & LEATHER hosted by NYC’s Mr. Eagle 2011, CB Kirby (*swoon*, he’s so dreamy!). This is a leather/fetish gear and erotic art sale (two things one can never have enough of) that benefits House Works, an organization who’s mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS. The event is happening at Housing Works Thrift Shops
143 West 17th Street (between 6th & 7th Avenues). My insider information tells me there’s some SWEET gear for sale at insanely reasonable prices. Imagine how great you’ll feel when you’re strutting around like an image from Tom of Finland knowing you got a great deal AND you did some good in the world.
Also on Thursday, the 10th, from 8:30pm-10pm is the NYboL (New York boys of Leather) educational session on HYPNOSIS! This is the second session in their education series and will be held at the LGBT Center at 208 W 13th Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues). New York Hypnotist and NYboL supporter, Neil, will be leading the event (and from his Recon profile he’s seems like a great guy, professional about his work, and a handsome devil).
Then, on Saturday, Feb. 12th, from 7pm-10pm at the LGBT Center is the exciting “A FETISH FOR FASHION” event! This fashion show and charity auction will feature some of the city’s fiercest leather/fetish/kink-wear designers as well as a silent auction to benefit The Center. And just to give you a bit more incentive to attend, I will be strutting down the catwalk at this event in my modeling premiere (expect a recap blog entry next week).
So you can wear the gear you bought on Thursday to the fashion show on Saturday and hypnotize a boy there with the skills you learned on Thursday. Everybody wins! See yall there.
