A Town Hall Series:  BLM Movement and the Leather / Kink Community

A monthly, Multi-Part Virtual Town Hall Series by ONYX Mid-Atlantic, running from July through December 2020.

This series takes an in-depth, no-holds-barred look at what it means to be Black in Leather and the issues we encounter as a result.  Our series is facilitated by ONYX Mid-Atlantic’s Education Chair, Lynx ONYX.

On Saturday, July 18, 2020, The Men of ONYX Mid-Atlantic held its first in a series of Virtual Town Halls to discuss the Black Lives Matter movement as it relates to the Leather Community.

Panelists for this first session included leatherfolk from throughout the community, including: Tyesha Nicole Best, Graylin Thornton, ThatSandy, Sir Wu & slave deedee, BlackKat (BK), Kai Anderson and Spec Black.

BLM & Leather Culture – Across the Generations.  Join us for Part 2 in the series, scheduled for September 12, 2020.   Information regarding panelists, time, and links to Facebook / YouTube will follow.

In keeping with our policy promoting inclusivity, ASL Interpretation Services will be provided for each town hall event.
