I’m Jack, although many in the scene know me as Buster.
I’ve been involved in activism and community building in the LGBT+ community since I was a teenager, and I grew close to London Leathermen as I read the clubs history, heard the stories of its members, and developed a deep respect for the fellowship that the older members have built over decades.
I’m proud to follow in the footsteps of giants and represent the club as it’s President. As we approach our 50th year, I’m excited to be a part of helping the club reflect, grow and celebrate our history together.
Before joining the leather community here, I’d always been a bit antisocial. Not in a malicious way – just a little awkward, unsure of myself and uneasy in a crowd. That all changed when I was encouraged to try a night at the backstreet, and discovered the warmth of the London leather scene. The friendship and support I experienced over the subsequent years made me the man I am today, and I want to help pay that forward to the next generation of fledgling kinksters. I greatly look forward to serving the club as its Secretary, and providing logistical support to the rest of the committee.
Hi! I’m Bob, and I was elected treasurer of London Leathermen in October 2021. I live in Canterbury in Kent, but am regularly in London, and attend lots of London events including the London Leather Social at Compton’s every month without fail. During the Covid-19 pandemic I ran the social online via Zoom, and once the pubs reopened, started LeatherclubONLINE – a monthly online social event for the leather community around the world. Outside of the leather scene, I work in education, and in my spare time I sing with a semi-professional chamber choir.
Hi, I’m Craig. I have been a fixture of the London Leather Social as the on-duty bootblack for the past 5 years. As a bootblack and leatherboy, Duty and service are my watchwords.
I have worked as a kink educator, doing both classes for the masterclass and hosting the Kinkyboys podcast. As the webmaster for the LLM I hope to build the club’s social media presence and keep up the good work of managing the club’s website.
