Put Your Best Facebook Forward

I started using Facebook in 2013. Prior to that I stayed away because I was working for the State of Maryland Department of Public Safety & Correctional Services and we fired employees as a result of information posted on Facebook all the time. Felicia is a corrections officer and her new boyfriend just got out of jail yesterday. Bye Felicia. Joe is really sick and can’t come to work today, but he is really having fun in Ocean City. Enjoy the time off Joe – you’ll now have lots of it. Sir Steve and I once missed a local leather titleholder’s charity event because we didn’t know it was going on. When we asked an organizer about it he replied, “It was all over Facebook!” Guess he didn’t want people who are not on Facebook there.

Springtime for Leather

There are so many leather events coming up in the next few months that I don’t know where to start! Don’t get me wrong. That is a really wonderful problem to have. I’m sure other parts of the country wished that they had so many leather events on their schedule that it is impossible to list them all in one article. I’ve always considered myself fortunate to live in Baltimore, in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic region, and have a spring bouquet of leather contests, fundraisers, and leather club’s bar nights all within a short drive. Allow me to list just a few of the leather events coming up in the months to come. You will want to circle these dates on your calendar.

The Pennsmen Celebrate 40 Years

In January 1977, 13 men got together in a small apartment on 2nd Street in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to talk about forming a leather social club for folks in the area. Some in the group were familiar with other leather clubs that had been formed in the Mid-Atlantic region, such as Washington’s Centaur MC (founded in 1970), the Philadelphians MC (founded in 1974), and the ShipMates Club of Baltimore (also founded in 1974).

Into the Woods

On Saturday, February 18th Mr. Woods Leather 2017 Todd Apple and Ms. Woods Leather 2017 Alyssa Durnien hosted “Ladies of Leather,” a drag show and silent auction at “The Nest” at the Baltimore Eagle to benefit the Lehigh Valley Renaissance Transgender Association and the Leather Heart Foundation. Afterwards COMMAND MC hosted the first of what will be monthly bar nights (on the third Saturday of each month) in the Baltimore Eagle’s “Code Bar.” It was a really fun night.
