Manu Roussel, Mr Leather Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur
Mr. Leather Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur

A friend described me once as "brave, welcoming, strong, humble." Without any pretension, those words define me quite well. Originally from the North of France, I have been living in the South for 30 years. I have lived my passion for leather for 8 years as I began to travel and attend leather and fetish events.

In 2016, I was elected Mr. Leather Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur and second Runner-up to the Mr. Leather France. As a titleholder, I travelled a lot throughout Europe to represent all kinds of fetish. I have lived very intensely this year, enabling me to meet all my leather friends and fellow Misters.

My goal as a Mister was to create a fetish Club in my region, which was really a desert fetish-wise. In 2016, I created the association "Evidence" with my husband, Roby Leather, and our friend, Stéphane Lederdoss.

We work daily with our members, offering them fetish and leather meetings, fetish aperitifs, dinners, parties, and pool parties in our house and travel plans abroad (including to Israel Mr. Leather)..

For the last 3 years we organised a 3-day fetish weekend "Nice so Fétiche" at the end of November. That event reflects family, associative and fetish spirit. 

We are also very involved with prevention; working every day with 2 French associations for prevention: SIS and ENIPSE.

In November of 2016, my husband and I opened a gay fetish store in Nice--the first and only one in the South of France. I now work with my association to know, promote and help leather and fetish people to assume proudly what they like and who they are.
