It is hard to put into words how extremely exciting my year was. There were so many highlights, including having had the honour to raise the rainbow flag in front of the town hall in Berlin-Schöneberg, travelling to Scandinavia, experiencing Canal Pride in Amsterdam from a magical perspective and, of course, meeting so many fascinating people.
The most important thing for me was being able to communicate with people, especially with those outside of the fetish world. Creating points of contact, eliminating prejudices and maybe even arousing an interest in some people for leather. There were numerous gratifying conversations that left a positive and lasting impression on me. But I’m also aware that there is another side to the coin. Before we are fully accepted in society, there is still a lot to do. That’s why it is important to stay visible and open for dialogue. The time for goodbyes always comes around and thus for me also the moment to pass on the sash. Do you want to be the next Mr Leather Berlin? Then use the opportunity during this Easter Berlin week to give us your application, and with a little bit of luck you could be Mr Leather Berlin 2020!
Of course, I want to thank the BLF and Mister B (especially Mairis)! Without your support, none of this would have been possible!
There a few people who I’d also like to mention by name: Tommy, who’s always active and full of energy; Tyrone, who shared so many wisdoms with me; Stefan, who helped in making my vision become reality; Nelson of Mister B; Norbert Bethke, Leena from Finland, Ivo, Max Schmal, Kim Bärly, Roberto and Frank from Amsterdam, Petra and Doris. I bow in gratitude to you all.
It goes without saying that it is also really important to me to thank all the helpers at so many events of all kinds. Your commitment deserves the highest appreciation and recognition. I feel honoured to have been allowed to wear the sash.

Berliner with body and soul. He started being into leather in his youngest years.
Oh boy, what a ride! My year as Mister Leather Berlin 2018 might be over – but my experiences are hard to express with just words or numbers. My year as a titleholder was more than just 108.322km of traveling during 27 trips on 52 flights, 205 hours on board of planes and 59 parties – my year was first and foremost one thing: A year in which I met amazing people worldwide and acquired friends for the rest of my life. During all of my trips I always packed my leathers, my humor, and the desire to represent a community that actually deserves that name: A place of tolerance, understanding, and listening to each other.
Born in Scotland but a European at heart. 40 years Germany, 10 years France and in Berlin since 2009. Apart from Mister Leather Berlin 2010 he was also German Mister Leather 2011.
