We've been chatting with the leather clad Joe King as he approaches his six month anniversary of being crowned Mr Leather Europe. Follow the discussion below.
It’s now been over five months since you were crowned Mr Leather Europe, has it changed your outlook on the leather scene at all?
It has, for the better. It's given me a unique opportunity to spend time with other communities in Europe which has been fantastic. Everywhere I’ve gone I’ve been moved by how consistently fantastic each community is. I bang on about it all the time, but I think our community is very, very special. It’s a strange thing winning a title like this as the one thing you don’t expect is for your own fetish life to go on hold, but nevertheless, it’s a brilliant experience.
We’ll be seeing you at Belgium Leatherpride in February, what events are you looking forward to?
You certainly will! Well, as leather royalty (joke) I’ve got a really hectic schedule of things to do which take priority over the events, so I’ve yet to sit down and plan what I can fit in. This year I’m a judge for the Mr Leather Belgium 2017 contest which will be fantastic, so this year I’m going to see where I end up. I’m looking forward to the parties, so I’ll definitely be at those.
