Unicorn boy, or U.b., is a bootblack - bootslut - leather boy - with a penchant for all things service. Ub can be found volunteering for virtually any event they show up to, bootblacking on the back patio of the SF Eagle, or caught in some compromising position in a dirty back alley of SOMA. His drive to grope as much leather as possible within his lifetime has led to his primary service to our community being bootblacking. Whether it be projects at home, at a stand in a bar, alongside a rockstar lineup of bootblacks at Folsom, birthing a bevy of baby bootblacks from his leathery loins, or licking his Sir’s boots clean after having come on them.... boots are Ub’s passion, and the most joyous way they know to love on the community that he finds a home in.
