Master of the media tells secrets of success!

Daniel Radcliffe once said, “Any actor worth their salt wants to show as much versatility as they can.” Actor and model Nic Detorie embodies this sentiment. Detorie’s work runs the gamut from commercials, print, live events, TV, and film. He recently sat down with me to talk about his life in entertainment.

Filling the Holes

There has been so much going on in the leather community the last few weeks that I really don’t know where to start. I want to finish up some of the stories of the last month or so. It seems that there are so many holes to fill.

Meet Destiny Amber

Destiny Amber, a Philadelphia resident who grew up in the small town of Pittston, Pennsylvania, may be young but is known to be wise beyond her years. She has already started making her mark in multiple ways, including serving as the current titleholder for Philadelphia Fetish, sharing her graphic design skills with many organizations and events, reading tarot cards for charity, leading the Philadelphia TNG (The Next Generation) a group for kinksters aged 18-35 and their partners, as well as volunteering and collaborating whenever possible. Whether behind a microphone or behind the scenes, Destiny puts her all into whatever she does and brings positive energy to it.

Meet Bianca Spencer

Mid-Atlantic Leather Woman 2017

In the history of women’s leather, one of the most important groups is Lesbian Sex Mafia, the oldest continuously run BDSM support group in the U.S. The group is coming back to the forefront and kicking some ass in N.Y.C. and beyond. I met Bianca Spencer last year during a women’s history panel with LSM members. I met her again when I had the good fortune and honor of marching with LSM in the N.Y.C. Pride Parade. The Brooklyn resident made an amazing impression on me, seeming to have a quiet strength and desire to help the group flourish and the dedication to help make that happen. If you have not met her yet, I hope you have the opportunity sooner rather than later.

Diversity Doesn’t Divide

I have always been proud of the diversity of the leather community in Baltimore. Maryland’s first leather club, the ShipMates Club of Baltimore, was founded in 1974. Although originally a club for men, currently the ShipMates counts both a female and a transgender person among the club’s full members. The Baltimore Eagle was the first of the “eagle bars” to add a Ms. Baltimore Eagle titleholder – and did so in 1992 when after founding a leather club called “Lesborados,” Glenda Ryder was selected Ms. Baltimore Eagle 1992. In 1993 Glenda went on to start a leather club for women called FIST (Females Investigating Sexual Terrain), which is still a big part of Baltimore’s leather community today. The Mr. Maryland Leather Contest began in 1991 and in 1993 Tony Hash became the first African-American Mr. Maryland Leather titleholder.
