From October 5 to 7, seventeen clubs from Germany, Austria and Switzerland came together in Berlin for their annual Fetish Unity Weekend. This year’s host club was BoG (Biker ohne Grenzen e.V.) Berlin. Together the clubs form the ‘LFC Leder und Fetisch Community’, an alliance of german-speaking clubs representing around 1000 members.
Highlight of the weekend was the Mr Fetish Germany 2012 contest, which was organized for the second time this year. Only regional titleholders can take part in the competition: Bavarian Mr Leather, Mr Fetish North-Rhein Westphalia, Mr Leather Baden-Württemberg, Mr Leather Hamburg, Mr Fetish Biker, Mr Leather Hessen, Mr Fetish Austria and Mr Leather Bremen. Out of eight possible candidates, only four took part in this year’s event. The eventual winner is expected to represent the german-speaking leather and fetish scene.
The contest was held during a Gala-dinner, attended by 120 guests and involved interviews and performances by the candidates. The show was presented by Mother Katharina and Sister Daphne of the Order of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Peter Hausdorff of Spike Hamburg.
This year, the attending public chose Claus Wagner – Mr Leather Hessen 2012 as winner. Karsten Kornacker – Mr. Fetish NRW 2012 became first runner-up with André Werner – Mr Fetish Biker 2012 as second runner-up.
“We are absolutely sure Claus will be an excellent representant for our community. During his titleyear he has the full support of all member clubs”, Klaus Kirschner, spokesman for the LFC, told the press.
