Mid Atlantic Leather Weekend (MAL)
Hosted by the Centaurs Motorcycle Club, the Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend (MAL) is a three-day long party and event held every MLK weekend in Washington, DC. ONYX events during MAL typically include a Friday Meet and Greet, the now infamous Cocktail Party and Gear Show on Saturday afternoon and a Fellowship Dinner on Sunday. This past year’s Cocktail Party and Gear Show raised nearly $5000. Join us for the next family reunion January 13 – 15, 2017!
Cleveland Leather Awareness Weekend (CLAW)
CLAW Corp is a certified non-profit corporation dedicated to fundraising, education, volunteerism and all other charitable needs of the adult leather community. They are dedicated to the principle that people into leather are normal, happy and healthy, and that they teach each other the truth of that principle. They produce an annual convention (the Cleveland Leather Annual Weekend) in Cleveland, Ohio every year, and smaller CLAW Nation events around the country throughout the year. Come out and join the fun April 27 – 30, 2017!
International Mister Leather (IML)
International Mister Leather (IML) is one of the world’s largest gatherings of leathermen and BDSM aficionados. Held every Memorial Day weekend in Chicago, IML spans several days and includes the International Mister Leather competition in addition to other events, such as workshops, socials, themed dance parties and a leather vendor market.
During IML, the men of ONYX typically host a Meet and Greet on Friday evening and a People of Color Caucus in the afternoon followed by the world famous ONYX IML Dance, definitely one of Saturday night’s highlights. We’ll be there May 25 – 29, 2017!
BLACKOUT is the anniversary celebration of ONYX. We gather all our members, family, friends and supporters to celebrate yet another year in the leather community. Originally held in Chicago, BLACKOUT has since been held in other locations such as Atlanta and Augusta in GA, New York City, Fort Lauderdale and most recently Washington, DC. 2015, BLACKOUT came home to the Windy City as we celebrated 20 years of DOMINANCE. Mark your calendars for 2017 as BLACKOUT invades the Big Easy (New Orleans) Sept. 28 – Oct. 1, 2017!
