It promises to be a very busy October month this year. With of course next to our normal activities we participate for the third year the ADE. With this year a very special edition with the name GayDE "We All Dance Together" from Thursday the 17th of October till Sunday the 20th of October. More about it in our next newsletter or visit the ADE page here.

And of course during Leather and Fetish Pride 2019 your favourite bar will organise more than enough activities from Thursday 24th of October till Sunday the 27th of October. With off course as one of the highlights our anual Fetish Flea Market. If you have got something to sell you can apply here or just check our special LFP 2019 page.


What a great Gay Pride we had in Amsterdam. The highlight for our scene was of course our street party "Crash" on the Beursplein, which had a huge crowd of people who wanted to celebrate Pride with us and in such a way that there was a long queue. So there was no

shortage of interest. I was in The Web at the time and suddenly I was told that there were all police cars and ambulances at Crash, I was shocked and I wanted to know what was going on. "Crash" stage was built directly in front of the Bijenkorf entrance and one of our DJs wanted to try out the smoke machine as well with the result that there was a huge smoke development, which also got the entrance to De Bijenkorf and set off the fire alarm, after which an evacuation of this department store started, luckily they soon knew what the cause was and they could prevent the fire brigade from turning up. The shopping could continue quietly and of course our street party too.
There has also been another big prize in our scene: Suzanne Van Der Laar "Miss Leather Netherlands 2019" was honored to be chosen as the winner of "the Pantheon of Leather 2019 Award." This award was created to help men and women and organizations that give recognition to the "Leather community" in a positive way. Suzanne has succeeded in this. She shows herself everywhere and conveys her message of acceptance of the Leather Community and fights for the rights of groups such as transgender people or lesbians and gives everyone a warm feeling of belonging. With an enormous dedication, warmth and love she has conquered our hearts and we can only be proud that she was awarded this "Pantheon of Leather Award 2019".
Well I get a busy month myself because together with Suzanne van der Laar I have been honored to be a member of the jury for the "Mister Bear World 2019" elections. For this honor we travel to Cincinnati (Ohio) in the United States. Not only is Mister Bear World 2019 chosen here, but also "Mister Bear Cub 2019" and also the "Miss Bear World 2019".To be honest, we don't know much about this last title, but who knows we could introduce it to the Netherlands with this experience. I am proud to be able to sit on this jury together with seven important leathermen such as the International Mr. Leather 2019 Jack Thompson and International Mr. Leather 2018 James Lee. I was asked, among other things, because I was the first European with an International Bear title, which I won in San Francisco in 1996
When writing this column, it is not yet known who the other three jury members are. I can say that in Cincinnati two Dutch candidates are trying to win the Mister Bear world title: Henk Heijenga (Mister Bear Europe 2017) and Marcel Van Doorn (Mister Bear Netherlands 2017).
In short it promises to be a very exciting weekend and I will tell more about it in my next column, I would say ...... see you then and keep it safe
