As if it wasn’t difficult enough being gay, his kinky thoughts and feelings led him to think that something must be really wrong with him. That frustrated feeling lasted until April 2008 when "D" attended his first true leather event, Beyond Leather in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It was there that he received the answers to his questions through seminars and much more.
