Berlin church worships leather fetish with inclusive, kink-positive celebration
A Berlin church held a leather fetish event, bringing together the queer community, the fetish world, and classical music.
The Twelve Apostles Evangelical Church is nestled in the heart of Berlin’s gay neighbourhood Schoeneberg, is home to the city’s first-ever gay male choir and even runs a queer youth group.
Part of the Evangelical Church in Germany, on Thursday (9 September) it welcomed a congregation of around 100 people, all dressed entirely in leather.
The event kicked off the Folsom Europe festival, a four-day kink event culminating in the world-famous Folsom Street Fair.
Tyrone Rontgagner, who has organised the “Classic meets Fetish” church concert, is a translator and LGBT+ activist who has twice been named “Mr Leather Germany”.
