Former Mr SF Leather Den Daddy
Erick has volunteered for the Imperial Court for many years and has held various titles with the Ducal Court, including Royal Daddy 2015. He was part of the original 6 founding members of the YLDG, has done the Leather walk for the past 7 years, and has volunteered for Real Bad, Magnitude and various booths at Folsom Street Fair. He has written articles for Instigator Magazine (an Alpha Male fetish magazine) and for the past 5.5 years has been producing CODE at The Edge, which focuses on bringing leather and gear back to the Castro.
Mr. Lopez first started in the SF Leather contest scene as den boy back in 2011. After three years as den boy, he became Den Daddy where he stayed for another 4 years, for a total of 7 years in the den. After his first year in the den, learning how contests run, and working at The Edge Bar, he decided to revive the Mr. Edge Leather title which had taken a 4 year hiatus; he then continued producing that contest for 6 years. Erick has also taken part in helping start other titles such as Mr. Sober Leather & Mr. Chaps Leather, and has been den staff to other titles such as Mr. Daddy’s Barbershop Leather and Mr. Bolt Leather in Sacramento.
Last year he stepped up to a new role for the SF contest as the liaison between feeder contests producers and city contest producers. Contrary to popular belief, Erick has never held a leather title and likes to be a prime example that you don’t need one to do great community work.
