About ONYX Mid-Atlantic
ONYX Mid-Atlantic (ONYX MA) educates Men of Color about the Leather/BDSM/Fetish community. We provide a safe space for exploration, empowering all to live their leather journey more freely, safely, and happily. For many, we are an introduction to Leather/BDSM through our Bar Nights. Our in-house education programs help others expand their fetish skills with demonstrations on Bondage, Electroplay, Spanking, Fire Play/Cupping, Flogging, Assplay, Sounding and others. Our long-term partnership with Widener University’s PhD Human Sexuality Program exposes future clinicians and educators to the Leather community. ONYX MA has raised more than $20,000 for Mama’s Family, SMYAL, Ali Forney Center, Scarlett’s Foundation, Eagle Wings, MAST, and Brother Help Thyself, St, Joseph’s House, and the Community Cares Project. ONYX MA includes International Mister Leather 2014, American Leatherman 2017, 5 Mr. DC Eagles, 3 Mr. Maryland Leathers, 3 Leathermen of Color, an International Leatherboy, a Mr. PW Leather, a Mr. Mid-Atlantic Handler, and a Mr Mid-Atlantic Leather. Most importantly, we are a family, proud of our record of community service and philanthropy.
