Dan Falkenham (contact him)
Eastern Canada Leatherboy 2004

Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Dan found the leather community in Ottawa in 1998, where he met his current partner and Daddy, Brandon. Since then, he has experienced the leather communities of Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Chicago. As he explored and learned about leather culture, his visits to International Mr Leather, International LeatherSIR/Leatherboy and Mid-Atlantic Leather impressed upon his what leather brotherhood and family are truly about.

His political views lean leftward, especially in the realms of sexual liberation and freedoms, and censorship of related expression. His interests include photography, reading, art, music, and flagging. Dan sits on the Church Street Fetish Fair organizing committee, and has volunteered with Folsom Fair North.
