REFLECTIONS OF A TEXAS LEATHERMAN - Hardy Haberman

  • Mr. S Studio 385 A 8th St San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

An evening with one of the most celebrated leathermen of our time. Hardy will reflect on his coming-up in leather, on the distinctive regional traditions of the Texan men's community, on the four decades of progress and peril he's witnessed in our national organizations; and will give a demonstration of the gifts that made him the man who literally wrote the book on CBT.

HARDY HABERMAN has been active in the leather community since the mid-70's and a member of many BDSM/Fetish organizations, including Dallas Motorcycle Club, Leather Rose Society, National Leather Association (NLA)-Dallas, the (Dallas) Discipline Corps, and Inquisition-Dallas, of which he is a founding member. Considering himself a "Pain Technologist," he specializes in CBT and has an unusual fondness for clips, clamps and clothespins, as well as more esoteric SM play.

Professionally he is a marketing specialist and filmmaker. His 1995 documentary on the leather lifestyle, "LEATHER," has won numerous awards and appeared in festivals around the world; and his latest film, "Out of the Darkness: The Reality of SM," is currently being used by health care professionals around the world. (Frameline has recently posted "LEATHER" for viewing: View on YouTUBE)

Outside work, Hardy is a gay activist, author and speaker on aspects of the SM/Leather scene. His books "The Family Jewels: a guide to male genital play and torment" (published by Greenery Press) and “More Family Jewels”, "Playing With Pain” And “Soul of a Second Skin” (published by Nazca Plains Publishing) are available at bookstores everywhere.

He is a regular columnist for the Dallas Voice, commenting on politics, leather and the LGBT community.

He was awarded NLA-International's "Man of the Year" award in 1999 and the NLA-I Lifetime Achievement award in 2007. In 2010, Hardy was honored with the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force's Leather Leadership award.

Since April of 1995, he and his boy Patrick have been living together in Dallas with their feline Mistress Elvira and troublemaker Jack-The-Cat.
