Get your deviance on for the Twenty Sixth episode of the Kink Kloset!
Coming in hot to the Kink Kloset is Dublin's very own Genial Miscreant, Fionn Scott. Fionn came to Dublin in his teenage years after spending his early years in Malaysia and the USA. To him, it felt like he was entering into a predominantly conservative culture compared to what he was used to. Fionn states that this feeling was fuelling his inner deviant at a young age and motivated him to question everything. His inquisitive nature lead him to seek out avenues and outlets which helped him explore his queer side. It comes as no surprise for Fionn to discover the kink clubs of Dublin early on in his young adulthood. Over the years he has put his deviance to good use and he took on the Mr Leather Ireland title in 2019, to which he took the title to the 41st International Mr Leather competition and placed 2nd runner up.
In this episode we talk about the importance of queer spaces and the success which comes from unifying the community. Over the years, Fionn had noticed the decline of queer spaces in his city and started to recognize how the spaces were being taken for granted. This situation became the platform for his titleholder project, to which he was able to arrange all of the key stakeholders, clubs, and events, to get together to share their experiences and learnings. Fionn talks in great depth on the outcomes from that meeting, yet it was due to this gathering, all of the kink community in Dublin marched together as one in pride that year for the first time ever. Fionn is hopeful that communities listening to his story can learn from his experiences and how important it is to come together as one, oh, and to question everything like the deviants we are!
