Happy Puppy: Harley's Crew
Back in the day, when HappyPuppy heard about SouthEast LeatherFest, curiosity got the better of him, so he attended and found his home. His involvement with SELF has ranged from party host, sound tech, and emcee torturer. Away from SELF, he co-hosts demos and play parties, helps lead a hugely successful munch, and continues to be engaged in service for the SouthEast region as is possible.
He primarily identifies as giving yet devious service top, a daring and inventive player, and an active and engaged promoter for his regional community. HappyPuppy is always looking for intriguing music, off-beat sound bites, audio equipment, and bold new ideas. He actively encourages all of the attendees to give their opinion, suggestions, and/ or advice for the show and the parties. He is always looking for ways to grow, and he cannot wait to provide the musical backdrop for his “family reunion” at the next, and every, SouthEast LeatherFest to come.
