Ejay: Mr SouthEast LeatherFest 2011
His bio: EJay Session aka “Uncle EJay” is a native of Los Angeles, California. He left Los Angeles in 1991 to continue his education at Morehouse College in Atlanta, and has made Atlanta his home ever since. His leather life began in Los Angeles at the age of 18, but did not truly develop until his former partner introduced him to the Sanctuary Family in 1995. It was at this time, his journey into the leather community began.
In 1998, EJay found yet another outlet to explore the community that he now called family. He joined, Onyx, a national organization for men of color, an organization that was founded in Chicago in 1995. In 2004, after several years of being a full associate of Onyx EJay joined with four others and founded the Southeast chapter of Onyx.
For the past 12 years, since joining Onyx, his mission has been to educate people about the leather community, whether it be one or one hundred. In 1999, Onyx was invited to host a seminar titled: “People of Color in Leather.” The seminar became one of the largest attended seminars during Atlanta’s Gay Black Pride Weekend. Due to the success of the People of Color In Leather seminars, Onyx was asked by the International Mr. Leather committee to begin hosting the seminar, during the International Mr. Leather Weekend. EJay was a presenter, and participant in the panel discussions and demos.
Ejay’s personal philosophy is: “Giving Back Begins With Me” In 2010, he decided to put this philosophy into practice by volunteering to recruit men and women for the LifeForward program, a program sponsored by Emory University to recruit men and women to participate in the HIV clinical trials program.
Throughout the years, not only has EJay been involved in the leather community, he was a semi professional D.J., performing at several venues in the Atlanta area, most notably, Phase I in Decatur. Described by some as a big kid at heart, most Saturday’s EJay can be found at Six Flags Over Georgia, exploring his passion for rollercoasters and amusement parks or playing Sim based computer games. However, his greatest passion is cooking. Ejay attended the Art Institute of Atlanta in 1998, and still continues baking cakes as a hobby and side business.
Ejay believes that life is a journey, not a destination, and as a “switch” EJay has had the opportunity to explore many fetishes including spanking, whipping, flogging, fireplay, cigarplay, fisting, bondage, wax, sensory play, cbt, nipple play, hoods, gags and gloves. He states that his favorite toy is a boar bristle wooden hairbrush. Extremely effective, easy to handle and you can still brush look good in the dungeon.
