Get your passport stamped because the Kink Kloset is going abroad for it's Eighteenth episode!
Taking a big booted step into the Kink Kloset is the ever so lovely, Gael Leung Chong Wo! Gael is a Belgium based kinkster who identifies as a late bloomer to the kink community. When growing up he knew there was a hidden part of him which turned out to be kink. He always thought of himself as "strange" due to being a French speaker with Asian roots in a Flemish neighbourhood, so it was no surprise to him when he developed a curiosity for kink. From his first kink experience 5 years ago, Gael has wasted no time exploring his kinks and discovering the community. Earlier this year, Gael put himself out on the line during Darklands 2020 in Antwerp and competed in their Mister Leather Belgium competition where he was awarded Mister Leather Belgium 2020!
Going outside of your comfort zone was never easy for Gael, yet they have always resulted in powerful and special moments of growth for him. Just stepping through the front door of a kink store was a hard thing for Gael, yet once he did, he knew had walked into the right place. Beyond that, Gael unpacks the conflict between feeling like you belong yet also not loosing who you are as an individual and kinkster. His experiences at Pride events where he met such diverse kinksters, sparked a project from him to increase visibility of all kinks and kinksters. #Wearefetish was launched by Gael as an online social media platform for the promotional of all kinks, with a special focus on those kinksters who view themselves as a minority. He is so happy with how well it has been received by the community and hopes it helps others get out of their comfort zone so they can feel confident with their kinky selves.
