Ep 149 – Switching Gears

Michael shot off to Adelaide for GEAR’d, Adelaide’s annual multi-day event hosted by Adelaide Leather & Fetish Inc (AL&F).

GEAR’d has become recognised across Australia, and internationally, as its own community haven and an event not to be missed on any kinky calendar. As well as hosting Mr and Ms Leather and Adelaide Rubber titles, a week of workshops, kinky cabaret, and fetish markets was on display.

Thanks so much to the GEAR’d team for throwing a fantastic series of events, and congrats to Mr Leather Adelaide – Storm, Ms Adelaide Leather 2022 – Delinda for your continued reign, Adelaide Rubber 2023 Miss Behavin’, and to the newly sashed Australian Bootblack Soveryn.
