Guilty Pleasures Evening:

The Lonely Xmas edition

Friday 13th of December more than a week before the holidays your favourite bar will turn again into an old fashioned dutch styled bar with the possibility to hear all of your guilty pleasures. WARNING if you want to avoid Last Christmas or All I want for Christmas this probably won’t be your evening.

The music will be played by D. J. Bassz and requests are more than welcome. And off course there will be more enough fingerfood and sweet things.

And if you turn up into a Christmasy outfit you can expect a nice surprise from the bar.

Sinterklaas & zijn roze veeg Mietjes

The 6th of December The Web Bar celebrates Sinterklaas again! But after all the commotion the “roze Mietjes” caused last year in some of the gay community the Sint decided to only use “roze veeg Mietjes” this year. Times are changing! So come and join us. 

From 8.00 pm D. J. Bassz will play his special beats to celebrate this dutch tradition. And around 8.30 pm the Saint will pay us a visit.

And off course there will be presents (if you have been good) and lots of sweet food.

So come over and celebrate this typical dutch tradition with us.

What a special and festive month October was. It started after I was invited to come to the "World Bear Weekend" in Cincinnati (USA) to sit on the jury of the "Mister World Bear 2019" elections. I thought it was an enormous honor and I didn't hesitate for a moment.


 Before I knew it, I flew with Miss Leather Netherlands 2019 (Suzanne Van de Laar, who was also a jury member) to this world event. We had a great week. Not only with the assessment and interviewing of the candidates, but also with shopping (which Suus was very good at) and sightseeing in Cincinnati.

The highlight was of course the gala evening (with the final of the elections). After an emotional farewell to the previous title holders, the moment came when the new Mister World Bear would be announced. We (Suzanne and I) had no voting rights for the Dutch candidates. These were chosen by an American jury. I was very pleased Marcel Van Doorn was chosen as the new "Mister World Bear 2019". The title "Miss World Bear" went to Nikki Wireman from Columbus, Ohio and the title "World Cub 2019" to Christopher Gonzalez from Atlanta. A nice fact is that Christopher is planning to visit the Amsterdam Bear weekend (March 2020).
After the hot days in Cincinnati (the temperature had risen to 40 degrees Celsius) we flew back to the cold Netherlands, where the next big event was already planned, the Gay Dance Event (part of the much larger Amsterdam Dance Event). For The Web, this meant that a different DJ could be heard every hour, culminating in a performance by the world-famous group "The Weather Girls". Singer Martha Wash and her daughter rocked the house with their hits. In short, a party that is worth repeating.
And as was stated in the previous newsletter, the following weekend was another big event: Leather & Fetish Pride Amsterdam. The elections for the new Mister & Miss Leather were long awaited. The Miss Leather election has experienced a stormy success since its introduction, which can mainly be attributed to Miss Leather Netherlands 2019 (Suzanne van der Laar). Not only has she introduced this title in the Netherlands, but she has made it into a powerful institution through her many actions and unbridled commitment. She has clearly demonstrated that it is not only about wearing leather proudly, but also that it can be important for everyday social situations. For example, she spent a lot of time and attention on transgender people and, as a highlight, she organized the first "Winter Pride Walk" in her hometown of Almere, in which many more people than expected participated. At the end of this Pride walk was the deputy Mayor of Almere not only a "Gay crosswalk" (a crosswalk in colors of the Gay flag), but also the first transgender path in Europe opened. This pedestrian crossing is of course in the color of the transgender flag. This also gives transgender people an image-defining face in society.
Back to the Miss and Mr Leather 2020 elections. Five enthusiastic ladies and four gentlemen fought for this title. The ladies' fight was won by my girlfriend Karin West. And with the men it also became very exciting. On a very busy party evening in "Aknathon" all candidates gave a good show. Our colleague Kevin achieved a nice second place (Runner Up) and Stephan Metzlar-Rudolph became the new Mr Leather Netherlands. The Web congratulates these two winners and wishes them much pleasure and success in the coming year.
The other highlight (the annual Fetish Flea Market) was visited more frequently than previous editions. The bar had completely changed into a Leather & Fetish paradise with a wide selection of clothing, gear and toys. Our visitors could offer their leather articles in their own booth or have them sold by the fantastic bartender Jacques. Who has done a great deal of work in a grandiose way, for which he certainly deserves praise and gratitude. It was also possible for the first time to donate clothing and toys. The proceeds from this (a nice amount of 640 euros) would be donated to Rainbow Railroad (a Canadian charity that helps lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to escape violence and persecution in their home country. More about this organization you can read at https: // www .rainbowrailroad.org /)
Finally, we can state that this year the Netherlands is top supplier of titles, because Adalberto Rubbadam was named "Mister International Rubber 2020" in Chicago during the annual MIR weekend. For him, of course, our congratulations. And after all the titles, which are important for visibility and acceptance of the scene, our own "Miss Netherlands 2019" Suzanne van de Laar has a chance to win the title during the IMSLBB 2020 Weekend (16-19 April 2020 San José (CA)) International Miss Leather. We wish her every success of course! So it all remains exciting and we will keep you informed. Until then I wish you a lot of pleasure and ..... keep it safe!
Greetings Jacques Zonne
