A Royal Wedding Rodeo Style

Scion of Irish royalty settles into Country-Western matrimony

Once upon a not-so-very long time ago, in the arena of the Inaugural Keystone State Gay Rodeo, two cowboys declared their love for each other. As the glittering assemblage of cowboys, cowgirls, and rodeo royalty looked on, the wedding of Floyd and Mark Zwiers was celebrated with thunderous applause. Chatting exclusively with Baltimore OUTloud, both Floyd and Mark reflected on how they met, their ties to the Keystone State Gay Rodeo (KSGRA) and their recent June nuptials.

Join The Club

Times have changed. People don’t shop at malls, they shop online. People don’t meet in bars, they meet online. People work at home online and go to college online. Even during those rare times when people are out in public they are staring at their online devices. It makes me wonder. In the internet age are leather social clubs even relevant? As someone who has been the member of a leather club for over 20 years, my answer is a resounding: yes!

And Another Thing

A few weeks ago I told you about some of the leather events that are coming up in the next few months in our area. Since then I’ve heard about even more events that you’ll want to add to your schedule. So here’s another list of coming events.

Meet Kristine Raye

When I was first getting to know Kristine Raye, a New Jersey resident, I found out her platform running for Mid-Atlantic Leather Woman was for people to love themselves. I thought that was so damn cool for a title platform as it’s so simple yet so deep. I also knew she stood for bisexual visibility. That’s not at an easy road to traverse with so many biases in leather and greater society about bisexual folks, but I never saw her back down or falter from this message. She was one of the people who helped found one of the first Team Friendly chapters. She speaks openly about mental health, including her experiences living with dissociative identity disorder. She loves her family fiercely and will champion her partner, J, and children as often as possible.

On Thursday, July 13th Megan (DeJarlais) Martin, International Ms Leather 1998 and Ms. Baltimore Eagle 1993, donated her IMsL title vest to the Carter Johnson Leather Library and Collection (Mid-Atlantic Annex) for long-term loan to the Baltimore Eagle’s trophy case. More than 60 leatherfolk from FIST, COMMAND, Mid-Atlantic girls of Leather, Onyx, and many other local groups “showed up and showed out” to welcome her back to Baltimore and celebrate all of the contributions she has made to our community through the years. Two of Megan’s IMsL sisters, Jessi Ahart (IMsL 2005 / Ms Baltimore Eagle 2005) and Lascivious Jane (IMsL 2016) – were also in attendance, along with her Ms. Baltimore Eagle predecessor, Glenda Rider– Ms. Baltimore Eagle 1992.
