Ed & Thomas Edward
Edward is an international make-up professional who is believes beauty on the outside starts with beauty on the inside.

“I have always been interested in the leather community. I am not into pain, but I like the adventure that leather can take you into, if you have the right person to take you there. I am still very much the vanilla guy with the kink side to him!!!”

thomas thought it was a huge compliment to be asked to be a part of SAFER+SANER, and got involved because he strongly believes that men of color need to see each other in as many spaces in the community as possible…including leather, bondage, safer play, and kink. He wants his involvement to help keep black men in the open rather than in the margins of the community.

“Some of my personal interests include foot play, masculine odors, verbal sex, role play, kink, ws, fisting, exhibitionism, leather, and bondage…but watersports would have to rank near the top of my fetish list right now; just under having a man on his knees begging for my…humm...attention.”

Talib invites you to stop by feel his vibe.

“I am new and still exploring the leather scene, and respect the diversity and honesty of the community. I am honored to be a part of SAFER+SANER because it’s a unique and exciting opportunity to promote safer sex best practices, sexual health resources, and offers resources for those new to the scene, especially for men of color where ignorance is destroying us. As men of color, it’s critical that we promote the importance of our sexual health, sexual education, and access to treatment among our friends, lovers, and within our community.”
