Photos from the Superhero Meet Up at MAL 2015

Mid-Atlantic Leather in Washington DC is renowned as one of the best leather and kink events in the U.S., and with reason. It brings together wonderful people from all parts of the world, it’s intimate yet large enough to feel big, and it’s hot as fuck! Here’s a gallery of some of the sights we caught this year. This year Pablo Greene organized MAL‘s first Superhero Fetish meetup, and we have included those photos, too.

Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend 2015

 

Packages and Hotel Rooms are still available for MAL 2015.   The hotel rooms at the host hotel tend to sell out towards the end of the year so it’d be smart to make that reservation now.  While the event is 3 days long, the majority of people leave on Monday which is a holiday.  I’m fond of arriving on Thursday. It’s sort of the quiet before the storm.  All my bondage gear and fetish clothes are all unpacked and I don’t have to deal with an early morning flight into DCA (preferred over crazy IAD!).

This is one of my more favorite Leather Events to attend. It’s social, laid back and has the feel of a family reunion of sorts.  The Centaurs MC put on a great event every year.  

*THIS* Weekend in Washington DC

MAL 2014

A few early-birds will trickle into DC this Wednesday when the faintest scent of leather accoutrement and cock rings are detected by curiously aroused TSA agents.  Traveler destination: DCA, IAD and BWI for MAL.  On Thursday, more early-birds arrive and it will be impossible to miss or ignore the palatable energy that signals the approaching countdown and commencement of 2014 Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend.  Finally, on Friday, January 17, the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill will teem with both MAL veterans – those who have attended the event for a number of years – and several hundred MAL virgins who by all accounts are filled with (I can see you shiver with antici — “say it!”) ….pation.  #MAL2014 emails, tweets and Facebook posts confirm #MAL2014 is a source of much excitement and chatter among many weekend virgins and most striking are the sheer volume of questions about the event itself.  “Where to go?  What to do?  Who to do?”  Not surprisingly, cadres of selfless, noble MAL veterans have placed themselves front and center responding to a large percentage of virgin inquiries.  Moreover, weekend veterans exemplify the altruistic nature of the leather community that is again proven unparalleled.  It is expected that over the next few days MAL veterans will increase all efforts that serve to confirm that for every single virgin in attendance, there are a minimum of two experienced hands waiting to welcome him, or her.   It is worth noting that friendly couples are in many cases, offering more than the minimum.

If you have not yet purchased a full MAL Weekend package, you may still do so, but only at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill on Friday, January 17 and only until 7pm that same evening.  The full package permits access to the leather exhibit hall; Saturday evening’s Leather Cocktails; Sunday brunch, Mr. MAL Contest; the official MAL Weekend closing party at 9:30 Club, Reaction Dance; and weekend shuttle service between Green Lantern, DC Eagle and 9:30 Club during published shuttle service times.  Separate day passes are also being sold – however, Leather Cocktails, Brunch and shuttle bus access are only included in the FULL package purchase.   Seasoned MAL attendees advise that you do your homework and go to www.leatherweekend.com for detailed information about everything from A – Z.  There is also a Weekend FAQS page at http://www.leatherweekend.com/faqs/
Q: Is there a dress code for Leather Cocktails?
A:  Indeed there is.  In maintaining the time-honored tradition of Leather Cocktails, we request that you dress in your best formal leather, boots, jeans, etc.  NO BARE CHESTS AND NO EXPOSED BUTTOCKS WILL BE PERMITTED IN LEATHER COCKTAILS.  Individuals baring chests and buttocks will be denied access to Leather Cocktails.  For more information about the origin and tradition of Leather Cocktails please visit our history page. In addition, the menu for Leather Cocktails has been leaked (by us so we’re fine with it) and may be viewed at http://www.leatherweekend.com/leather-cocktails-menu/
REACTION Dance: 3 DJs, 3 Levels, 3 Day Weekend
DJ tim ē (Tim Morse) has been added to the REACTION roster and will provide music in the Backbar at 9:30 Club.   DJ tim ē has been electrifying DC dance floors since 2006 spinning his own style of HiNRG pop, diva anthems and tribal beats.  He has performed at CHERRY here in DC opening for DJ Abel and Market Days at the Cellblock in Chicago; while also spinning several DC Capital Pride events. His weekly residency for the last 5 years is at Secrets (DC) where his INFERNO parties are always sizzling HOT!  Timmy has played most dance venues in DC: Town, Cobalt, Green Lantern, Apex, Nellie’s, and Motley bar. Look up DJ tim ē on Facebook.
