My name is Henk. I came out when I was very young, and a few years later I found my place in the leather/fetish scene. I got to know the leather/fetish scene in the 1980's where brotherhood was more than just a word we use often on social media.
I opened my own leather bar “The Hanky Code” in 1995 in Antwerp, which became a home for fetish events.
For the last 7 years I have been living in Barcelona. In 2017 with 5 other friends, we founded the Spanish Leather & Fetish Community to show the real meaning of brotherhood. As Secretary of the SLFC, I confront the challenges and changes of the new fetish/leather generation.
I am honored to be on the jury for the Israel Mr. Leather contest. See you in Tel Aviv!
