The Manchester Leathermen team

The Manchester Leathermen community is a voluntary organisation run by a number of dedicated, friendly leathermen. We love new members and everyone is more than willing to show you the ropes. Take a quick glimpse of our core team.

President – Daddy T

Daddy T started on the leather scene at the age of 21, the legal age of consent at the time. Now he’s proud to say he’s a Daddy with an amazing Leather Family. Daddy T loves passing on what he knows and learning even more. His favourite leather is his Langlitz breeches, jacket and gloves, “they feel like a part of me when they’re on”.

Daddy T was elected President in March 2017 and is responsible for the overall vision and direction of Manchester Leathermen and of Manchester Leather Weekend. He also takes the lead in relationships with other clubs in the UK and abroad. One of his priorities for his time as President is education, and has put in place a partnership with the LGBT Foundation to run workshops before our monthly socials. Keep an eye on Facebook for details. You can contact him at president@manchesterleathermen.org.

Secretary – Ed

Ed’s interest in leather goes back a long time though now it’s become a large part of his life. It’s only recently that he’s started wearing it out and on the leather scene, ever since moving to deep south of Yorkshire, originally hailing from the far north of Scotland. Ed finds the feel of leather very relaxing after stressful day at work. 

Ed is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the Club. You can contact him at secretary@manchesterleathermen.org.

Treasurer – Michael

Although Michael had a fetish for leather before he was even old enough to know what a fetish was, it was thanks to the encouragement of his husband that he took the plunge and bought some gear. “I’ve never looked back!” He loves everything about the leather itself and the brotherhood of the men that wear it. His favourite item is his gauntlet gloves, he loves how tightly they fit and how soft they feel.

Memberships Officer

Our Memberships Officer is the main point of contact for new and existing members, and runs our Buddying system. We’ll be looking for a new Officer at the AGM, so if you’re interested get in touch.

For more on our memberships and benefits, email memberships@manchesterleathermen.org.

Business Manager – Rob

Rob calls himself a late developer in the fetish world, but he’s made up for lost time over the last few years. Since joining MLM he has discovered that he was not alone in this journey. Many guys develop this side of themselves as their confidence grows. “We all have private and professional lives, and this is something that MLM has always fought hard to preserve. Saying that, dancing around in a pair of chaps, boots and a harness provides a welcome release after a long, hard day in the office!”

To discuss the business of Manchester Leathermen Ltd, email Rob at accounts@manchesterleathermen.org.

Volunteer Co-ordinator

Our Volunteer Co-ordinator role is currently vacant. If you’d like to find out more about the role, and to stand for election at the AGM on 3 March, why not contract our Secretary?

Marketing & Communications Officer – Martin

Martin is the Marketing and Communications Officer and a self confessed social media whore. He has been into leather for as long as he can remember, first having his head turned by TV bad boys, bikers and pop stars who all wore leather. His passion is leather and he has a genuine desire to normalise the wearing of Leather and wants to be part of a forward thinking and inclusive club that welcomes all leathermen no matter how they choose to wear it! Although he is rarely seen without leather jeans on his favourite thing is actually skin tight leather gloves.

We’re keen to partner with other organisations for marketing and promotions. Email Martin at marketing@manchesterleathermen.org.
