Angel is honored to be the 2013 Women’s International Leather Legacy (WILL) titleholder. The title’s purpose is to document, primarily through interviews, the women’s community and our histories. She has enjoyed her travels to numerous events, meeting many woman, and having a chance to add to the work already started with the Women’s Leather History Project (now Program) through more than 50 interviews.

Ms. V, International Ms. Bootblack 2007 was the first woman of color to win that title. She has been a Bootblack for well over 12 years. She is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. An active member of the San Francisco Leather Community, she has done extensive fundraising and has been groomed and mentored, Leather titleholders both locally and nationally.

She was an original member of the SF Bootblack Studio, later known as the NorCal Bootblacks. 

She was responsible for bringing back the International Sir/boy, California Community Bootblack Title back to Northern California. As the first woman to bootblack in Leather bars in San Francisco, she was determined to seek more opportunities for both female identified Bootblacks and for Bootblacks of color. By breaking down barriers, Ms.V has paved the way for many other Bootblacks.
 
She continues to preserve the tradition of "honoring stories" by supporting the next generation of bootblacks and by spreading the gospel of boots. She is spiritual in her Leather journey and she shines in her artful Leather care.

Blink is a switch in the BDSM community. They are a heavy sadist and soft, service oriented submissive. They are a Handler and a Chihuahua. They love to clean and have been helping the community with that skill. They have cleaned Catalyst in the past and are currently assisting Wicked Grounds. Last year, they volunteered from start to finish at Leather Alley. They talk to people about mental illness in the community and fight for non-binary rights. They also educate people on asexuality in and out of the community. They have no preference on pronouns, but prefer to be called Sir when topping someone.
