Leather Pride Amsterdam 27 – 31st October 2016

Come and celebrate with us the 20th Anniversary of Leather Pride Amsterdam 2016!

My name is Frank van Schie. I am 57 years old and I was chosen to represent Amsterdam as Mr. Leather Amsterdam 2015. I am a Proud Man and in October we will choose the new Mister Leather Amsterdam 2016! It’s a privilege to welcome you in Amsterdam which is celebrating its 20th edition of Leather Pride (Since 1996).

This year was filled with many ups and downs and of emotions. We welcomed Gay Care Amsterdam, a Home Health Care Service for the LGBT community and said goodbye to the The Warehouse which closed its doors on March 2016. But in addition, many things happened inside- and outside the borders of the Netherlands. We all know that!

Socialize with friends and other wonderful individuals and talk about our lives and experiences. At the moment I am attempting to initiate some nice gatherings, but with good music and in a nice atmosphere, where the social aspect of meeting has priority. Meeting without telephones but having interest in each other as men, not on the telephone.

Frank, Mr. Leather Amsterdam 2015
