Mama’s Big Screen

ReflectiveMama’s Big ScreenSeattle, WA — Friday night at the Cuff during the Seattle Daddy/Daddy’s Boy contest Meet & Greet, I was surprised by a very special honor. Apparently, I had been nominated by members of Mama’s family here in Seattle and adopted into Sandy Reinhardt’s fold. Many of members of Mama’s Family who call Seattle home were on hand to present me the unique brass name tag that christened me as one of Mama’s own. The significance of this may be lost to many of you reading my journal, but I can assure you that I am more than honored by this recognition… I am humbled.

For those of you who do not know, Sandy Reinhardt is a legend and her family, an institution within my community of family and friends. Mama Reinhardt’s leadership has benefited more people than I can count and her service to our community has made her the subject of a National Leather Emerald Award. Mama’s family is comprised of some of the most active and involved I have ever met, because Sandy’s adoptions are based upon an exceptional demonstration of commitment. The gentlemen pictured with me above are a testament to that level of service. Gene Romaine, Puppy, Jim Drew and Daddy Jeff have been long time activists in Seattle’s leather community and tremendous impacts on my own life. I am filled with humility to be counted among these men.

On Saturday night I joined friends at the Cuff for the Seattle Daddy/Daddy’s Boy contest and had a good time visiting with everyone although it was rather strange being there without a boy at my side. Christopher had to work and neither of the other boys was available that night, but Christopher was able to join me for the SML Brunch at Martin’s Off Madison on Sunday before heading off to work.
