Southern California Leather Productions announced that the SoCal Drummer, SoCal Drummerboy and SoCal Drummer Bootblack Competition will be held the weekend of April 22-24.

SoCal Drummer will include social and educational events.

During the Southern California contest, Drummers and Drummerboys will be judged on speeches, stage presence, interviews and a fantasy. Bonus points will be awarded if the contestant performs a fetish or kinky demonstration; Bootblacks will be judged on speeches, image, technical ability, chair management, and interviews.

The SoCal Drummer competition is a feeder contest for Drummer North America to held in Las Vegas, NV.

Drummer was the most successful of all American Leather magazines and also sold overseas. The publication had a major impact of spreading gay Leather as a lifestyle and masculinity as a gay ideal. And gave birth to such famous San Francisco social events as the California Motorcycle Club Carnival and the Mr. Drummer contest.  
SoCal Drummer is a region of Drummer North America (DNA) which rekindles the Drummer tradition of self-identified masculinity in gay men, at an annual family reunion where history is honored and diversity respected.

Unlike contests restricted to only Leather or rubber, or a specific power dynamic such as Master/slave and Sir/boy, SoCal Drummer contest titles are open to a broader spectrum of fetish identities of gay men — from rubber, uniforms, skinhead and Leather, to sports kit, military and punk. SoCal Drummer is diverse.

SoCal Drummer contests are open to gay-identified, biological and trans-gendered men in the fetish/kink communities, who are residents of Southern California (including the counties of San Luis Obispo, Kern, San Bernardino, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside San Diego and Imperial).

The diversity celebrated at SoCal Drummer weekend creates a welcoming home for fetishists who migrate across a wide range of gear and play, and for gay kinksters who are equally comfortable exploring power dynamics from both ends of the spectrum.

After 25 years and after raising over $350,000 for local and national charities, the Key West Wreckers have disbanded due to lack of= participation. In the words of J.T. Thompson, the former president of the 25-year-old organization, “The Wreckers were down to eight members and sometimes with only had two active members to run events, so it was untenable.

From the looks of things here [Key West, FL], people socialize online, not in person, and not in clubs. The Knights d'Orleans and other clubs are gone for the same reason. I wish I had better news from your Leather brothers in Key West, but the times are a-changing!"

The Key West Wreckers Leather/Levi Club was founded in 1991 by men in the Key West community who shared a similar interest in Leather and Levi. They shared a brotherhood of friendship, a commitment to contributing to their Community and an ongoing effort to educate Leathermen and Leatherwomen in their pursuit of safe, sane, and consensual adult sexual expression.
