Girl Complex

Complex is a self described petty, black feminist and womanist. A product of their environment, Complex has been able to define what it means to be proud, black, kinky and leather on their own terms. As International Ms. Leather 2017, their title year was dedicated to making sure black girl magic could thrive in all forms, allowing both their tomboy and femme adjacent presentations to be shown fluidly. Pantheon of Leather 2018 Woman of the Year and proud official handler of Pup Luck from Iowa, they have started building a pack of pups that they love called the Unpack Pack. If they have to be embarrassed about something, it is that their girl Vivian belongs to them as well. They maintain a hard stance against false allies and anyone else who "perps the fraud", that is old people speak for “they have no time for fake ones”. You can catch them sunbathing and listening to Yacht Rock, or watching anime in Oakland, CA, or you can lowkey stalk their Instagram (Girl_Complex), Twitter (IMsL2017), and/or on Facebook (Girl Complex).

Victoria 

Victoria has been an avid student of all things leather for more than twenty years.

First as a girl (the service sub kind), and then as a slave for many years (some of them collared), and now as a Ma'am to *the* best boy.

Early in her journey she demo bottomed as much as she could, and volunteered behind the scenes for leather clubs including the Alameda County Leather Corps. She later became a member of Exiles, MAsT-Alameda, and MAsT San Francisco.  She believes in the magic and the mystery of obedience coupled with devoted service, and one of her most cherished memories is serving as a house submissive for the brief-lived San Francisco Leather Service Salon.

Now focused on domestic pursuits, she spends her time feathering the nest she shares with her boy, a human teenager, and a variety of furkids in East Oakland. She remains a fan of excellent service.

Zane

Zane, the artist formerly known as Azalea, is a femme trans guy who is madly in love with San Francisco. They were Ms San Francisco 2017, which is getting more amusing to tell people the further along in transition he gets. He hopes to get totes swole, bro, and looks forward to becoming a musclecub. Nothing makes sense anymore, everything is in flux, and really they just want to be happy and help other people be happy too. ...Ice cream and cuddle?
