nefmrNefarious: Mr. SouthEast LeatherFest 2009


On December 30, 2013 Nefarious, Mr. SouthEast LeatherFest 2009 passed away.  His memorial service took place in Spartanburg, SC where many of his friends and family gathered to say goodbye.

As a part of the SELF titleholders family, we would like to take a moment to remember Nefarious and the many ways that he touched and contributed to our communities. The following is an excerpt from his title column journal January 2010 during the second half of his title year. He did 30+ events and fifteen states during his title year. He continued to represent SELF and bring others to the event. He felt opportunity and education was important. It is with this in mind that we have begun a scholarship in his name. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Nefarious, you will be missed by many. Thank you for always reaching out a hand to others.
