On Lineage


"Most of the time when people speak and write of Old Guard values and protocols, a heated debate ensues, with one or more of our kinfolk ending up feeling insulted and no one finding consensus about the topic. Basically, we agree to disagree and we go back to our own lives creating more memories, adding to our journeys. Leather Culture is an endless amount of experiences that are developed from many rituals, traditions, scenes, and learned skill sets, many of which have been passed down from person to person. I think the one thing that many will agree on when it comes to Leather and our defining of Le Olde Guarde, is that we want to identify those aspects that individuals can hold on to and proudly say that, “Yes! These things are what made me who I am as a Leatherperson!” We want to give and pass down our most coveted items and memories to those deserving Leatherfolk so that our cultural carbon footprints are not forgotten, so that some tiny part of us lives on. But what is it really that we are passing down and preserving? And thus, I want to talk about lineage."
