POC Titleholders

For People of Color (POC), the Leather and Kink community has not always been easily been accessible and welcoming.  While that has begun to change in many ways, and we certainly value our allies across the entire LGBTQ+ community, it’s important to examine our rich history.  One aspect of this history can be found in our representation in Leather and Kink titleholders.

The list below highlights POC titleholders throughout the years.  As this list is ever expanding, if you know of a POC we inadvertently omitted please email the relevant information to papa.onyxma@gmail.com so it may be included in our historical record.
