Thorsten
Bostandzic

🇬🇧
Hi my name is Thorsten Bostandzic. I am 48 years old and was born in Hamburg. I am a typical nordish guy, with all edges and curves. My mom was a close friend in the 70’s to the famous “Domenica”, who was not only a well known Domina, she was also in her latest years really active on the street, to get young girls and boys back into social life. When I was a very young boy, she taught me to be open to everything, never say no when it’s just a way to be unsure if it might be right – this is still my personal philosophy.

When I was a child, I lived in St. Georg straight to the “Lange Reihe”, a part of Hamburg where still of the gayscene is alive. When I became a teeny, I moved with my parents at the border to Hamburg, where I grew up. I felt ever being a part of my hometown, even though I am living now not so close to, but I come regularly to visit my family and friends.

Since I was eighteen years old, I had my first steps to the leather scene- When I turned 21, I had my official coming out, with all exceptions by family and friends. With 22 I was nearly every weekend out at the gay leatherclubs in Hamburg and had a very welcome time, found many friends and a few years ago, I became a member of the MSC-Hamburg.

2018 I lived two years in Wales. in 2019 I was a contestant for the Mr. Leather Cymru, and I won second place. When I lived there I found out, that the gay szene is in same age, aas we had it here in the nintess. But it comes open to the people step by step, and I am a bit proud to be a little part, which was there at the right time. I am active on many groups on facebook. 5000 so called friends and many followers who also asked me many questions about leather and bdsm. I have plenty of youngsters and newbies, who text me on several topics, mostly to get some advice for their coming out or also about fetish and living with them. I do my best to help them.

Leather is not only a fetish for me. My work takes it, I have a leather Online Shop, I live with ist, I enjoy it and It’s also a part of myself now. The question that everybody asks itself is, what might be my results, when i won the contest. What can I do better, what is my way against the other ones, who also want to be the winner?

As a leather fetish community we are still fighting against prejudice, hate and too often lack of understanding in society, may the reasons be religious ideology, the lack of knowledge or certain fear and angst, due to lack of understanding and lack of support through family and friends. Even within the LGBTQ+ scene and community racists situations appear.

For some time now, I have been noticing that our leather scene is ‘weakening’.The community’s social interaction suffers through the modern tendency to communicate mostly online and anonymously, thus pushing social get-togethers into the background.

I believe that those holding the title should use their status, combined with the associated increase of public perception, to sustain and foster tolerance in our society and to reduce prejudice. Our leather community needs newcomers and younger members and the acceptance of the older campaigners which should not just offer their support, but also promote, embrace and implement new thoughts and ideas for everyone’s advantage. If you think I might be the right one, I will do my best to be so.

Roni Jäppinen

🇬🇧
Let me introduce myself, I’m Roni Jäppinen Suonenjoki, from a small town, in North Savo. Suonenjoki is also known as the strawberry capital of Finland. Hard of hearing guy with cut inner ear implants.

I am a practical nurse by training and no, I do not work the leather, multi-pea pull the nose for it. In fact, I would think leather could be invigorating compared to the age-old sister of thin whites. Leather lasts better and nowadays you get color than color.

What about my world of values? It is guided by the double commandment of love: Love your neighbor as you would love yourself, do not judge not to be judged.

What comes in myself, I always idealise cowboy .. As I approached puberty, the skin of my interest first began to interest in boots, chapss and cowboy hats. From leather pants. Everything happened to me gradually. Dare and deed are things you have to face. The road eventually took me to Helsinki, where I lived for about 20 years. The years included good and bad.

I rest of the acts of sexuality btm and submissive. My fetish: I admired cowboys romantically, leather: would you find a sharper grip? And Boots. I also like U.S. police uniforms. My role models are mainly Oberli Werner and Marcus Kapp.

Why do I want the title of Mr Leather Hamburg? I want to do my part for MSC Hamburg. We are part of the EU and the rest of the world. It is time to give MSC Hamburg more international visibility. The boundaries are starting to disappear and we in the Leather / Fetish family know no boundaries. We are one big family.
The fact that I am Finnish, may even be an advantage.

Those who are elected Mr are front-line soldiers. Our task then is to give information to the ignorant. We are like anyone else. We eat, sleep, cry, laugh and love where everyone else does. We are not much different from the others. The mission of the Mr is to dispel prejudices, unnecessary aggression, and to provide information to those who do not have it. We are also pioneers and role models for anyone who appreciates the same things today and for those who come after us.

Darek Kraft

🇬🇧
My name is Darek Kraft and I’ve always had one dream: to be Mr Leather. I am 46 years old and Spanish. I’ve lived in Hamburg for seven years and love this city. I am the father of a daughter and by profession I am a personal trainer and manager in a Spanish restaurant: I am also a bartender and waiter myself, I am a trainer and instructor for bartenders and waiters. Hamburg gave me a new life and also awakened my love for leather as my fetish.

In addition, I am a porn actor, which I actually always wanted to be. Hamburg made a new person out of me; here I have grown as a person.

I’ve always had a dream: to be Mr. Leder. But not for my ego: rather for Hamburg, for the MSC association, which was the first aid for me and gave me my first colleagues in Hamburg.

And, yes: I had a dream: to be able to help lgtb people as a positive example and to be able to help lgtb colleagues who were not lucky enough to help people who are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation, race or religion.

I had a dream: to be Mr. Leather, TO HELP. And when I am committed to something, I feel that it is right, honest and true because I put my soul and my heart into it. I wish MSC can be proud of me.
