California Drummer, California Drummerboy and California Drummer Bootblack are fetish titles — celebrating the diverse range of sexual fetishes of gay men. Titleholders network and do outreach to help educate individuals and the broader gay community about gay men’s fetishes, erotic expression, traditions and history — and of course, encourage fetish and gear play, BDSM and hot kinky sex. Contestants are judged in four categories: Interview; Speech and Image; Physique; and Fantasy Scene that highlight their fetishes and play.
California Drummer contests are designed to better reflect the reality of gay men active today in the fetish/kink communities. Each title is open to the broad spectrum of fetish identities celebrated by gay men — from rubber, uniforms, skinhead, Leather, to sports kit, military, punk, puppy play and more — and reach beyond any one specific power dynamic. Eligible contestants are gay-identified biological or transgendered men in the fetish/kink communities, age 21 or older, and residents of California or Baja California Norte, MX.
