Sir Luke & His victor
Sexually liberated, radically rebellious, Master and slave. Sir Luke and His victor manifest a sacred exchange of will and surrender through sanguineous Leathersex, intentional structure and discipline, and shared personal truth. Though their way of life is quiet and discreet, they live in the margins and on the edge to uncover hidden purpose and empowerment. They answered each other's calling on the concrete floor of the dungeon, undeniably conquering fear and hesitation, and haven't looked back.
Sir Luke and His victor are Southeast Master/slave 2019 and Florida Power Exchange 2016/2017. They have presented internationally on the healing aspects of authority-based dynamics and advocate for pulling back the veil. When they're not doing work in the community, they enjoy their home sanctuary, where victor can sit at Sir Luke's feet in their dungeon and exist as Master and slave. Photo Credit: Mia Rose

One could say that Marialuisa Garcia, most affectionately known in the Leather community as Velvet-Storm, is a force that is authentic to their name: strong, frightening, ferocious, loud. And they would not be entirely wrong. There is a story behind their eyes. One of survival. A story that tells the tale of how a beacon of strength came to be.
With the support and encouragement of “Mama” Vi Johnson, it was then that they brought their mental health platform to the forefront, first running for and winning Ms New Jersey Leather 2017 and becoming the inaugural Leatherwoman of Color in 2019.
Beneath that tough as nails exterior, there is so much more. Velvet is a mother, grandmother, aunt, sibling, and friend. A survivor who became a champion of our community as a whole - who has no plans to quiet their voice anytime soon. Photo Credit: Flash Onyx
