The Christmas lights are down, the tree’s been picked up by the recyclers, and the living room furniture is finally back in its normal configuration. That means the holidays are officially over and it’s time to pack up the gear and head down to MAL. The annual party and leather contest hosted by Centaur MC drew an estimated 3000 participants to Washington D.C. last weekend.
Squirt, Dawg, Blackkat, Nubius & Leon at MAL 2008
As usual Saturday was the busiest day. The vendor mart filled up early with shoppers looking for the latest and hottest gear and the lobby was soon packed with people making new friends and reconnecting with old ones, all while people were still checking into the host hotel. There were parties going on every hour throughout the day at venues all over the neighborhood, leading up to Leather Cocktails at Almas Temple and the big RECON-sponsored dance party at Apex Night Club near Dupont Circle.
One of the highlights of the weekend was the party co-hosted by ONYX and Forbidden FUNK Media Saturday afternoon. ONYX is a club for leather people of color with chapters in Chicago, New York City and Atlanta. Forbidden FUNK Media is a unique new porn company owned and operated by leathermen of color that creates products specifically for and starring leathermen of color. ONYX is already famous for throwing the hottest parties at MAL and IML, and the addition of Forbidden FUNK – which previewed its first two feature length releases on a big screen HDTV – truly made this party one for the record books.
Sunday kicked off with brunch at Almas Temple and was immediately followed by the Mr. Mid-Atlantic Leather contest. After the votes were tallied the winner was announced as Mr. Connecticut Leather Chris Grasso with first runner up Mr. Double L Leather Karl Hornberger. Chris will go to Chicago to compete in International Mr. Leather XXX as Mr. MAL 2008.
Entertainment this year was again provided by the inimitable Varla Jean Merman, who performed her new show, “Varla Jean Merman Loves a Foreign Tongue.” Varla Jean was also the entertainer at last year’s contest, but that didn’t seem to bother anyone as she kept the politically incorrect laughs coming. Legendary NYC circuit DJ Warren Gluck also returned this year to spin at the REACTION dance on Sunday night, the official closing party of the weekend.
One thing that didn’t return and which was sorely missed by many was last year’s unseasonably warm weather. Wind chills in the single digits reminded many people of the frigid MALs of the past and had more than a few wondering if maybe global warming wasn’t such a bad thing after all. It’s hard to be noble about the environment when you’re trying to find a cab at two in the morning and Al Gore isn’t around to make you feel guilty about it.
