Judge Mark Frazier 

Just your usual perverted "kinster' who loves life, friends and exploring my own never endng journey.

I really fit no self-imposed mold: Cowboy, Leatherman, sadist, masochist, top, bottom, activist, educator, Businessman, Gay-man, and yes, honorary Lesbian are all applicable.

Most see me as an edge player with little tolerance for people who become complacent with their own evolving sexuality. I have no time in my life for BS!

Judge Neko 

Neko is a kinky leather man who started his journey in 1996. His travels and learning began as a collared slave. After almost 2 years, his Mistress felt he was on the wrong end of the flogger and spent 3 years training him to provide the proper care and feeding for his own slaves, as well as building upon Leather history, traditions, and ideals. He is the head of his leather house, the House of Blood and Ice, which follows the Code of Bushido. Currently he owns two slaves, koneko, who has been with him since 2002 in a 24/7 relationship and for the past three years, slave raven. He's also been a Daddy for the past 3 years to Siren and an Owner of his property, Sweetsalt. 
Through his training, Neko discovered a desire to educate others -- helping people to understand the darker parts of themselves, dishing out his own variety of sadism, teaching about the connectivity of a Master/slave relationship, as well as being an active part of the community. He has been a part of the New York & Texas communities. In New York, he presented, played, and did fetish and rave photography. In Dallas, he's run various groups such as DFW Bound, the Bound Rose Society, NLA-Dallas, staff at the Dallas dungeon Sanctuary, Lead security for Beyond Vanilla, and was a Co-Producer of the Great Plains Olympus Leather. Since 2007, he's been an active part of the Mentors Program. Now he not only presents and mentors in Dallas, but owns the Mentors Program that is in Austin and Dallas with his slaves. He also teaches and judges at a variety of events in our community and currently, he is the Co-lead of MAsT: Dallas, a Co-Producer of the Mr. and Ms. Texas Leather titles, and a regular on a panel to teach graduate students in counseling about what we do.

Honored to be the 2017 Heartland Person of Leather 
I am a relative newbie to the Leather community however the more I learn about it the more I realize I have abided by Leather ideals my entire adult life.
I have met some amazing people through my recent journey being a title-holder, I have grown as an individual through Leather in many aspects and I strive to give back when the chance presents itself.
In my time as a title-holder I have had the privilege to teach, Learn, and serve my community and I will continue to do so. 
I am a lover of rope bondage and everything to do with it. I have learned from Osada Steve, Graydancer, Barkas, Okienawa (as part of KCKinbaku) among many others and I will continue to learn and grow as a rigger.
