Mr. San Francisco Leather 2020: Trey President, Onyx Northwest

Sometimes affectionately referred to as Dude Complex, Trey Onyx has been a longtime volunteer and advocate for the LGBT+ community at large. He initially established his own leather roots by volunteering his time with the Knight Hawks of Virginia. With the support and early guidance of the Knight Hawks, his personal journey into Leather commenced. In the Bay Area, Trey was a past member and volunteer for the Alameda Country Leather Corps.

Before retiring as a veteran of the United States Coast Guard, he was a forerunner in his career as one of the first black trans men within the Coast Guard. He helped pave the way for other Coast Guard Members that identified as LGBTQ+ were serving, by coordinating various events such as speaking panels and a variety of official Coast Guard Pride festivities.

Early on, he had decided to use his position within the various communities to elevate the voice of others by becoming a featured speaker for the LGBTQ Speakers Bureau, as well as continuing his role of being a longtime outreach leader for black trans men nationwide. Trey’s desire to create a visible home for him and other gay/bi Leathermen of color lead him to become one of the Founding Fathers of Onyx Northwest where his is currently serving as President.

At his core Jawn is a kinkster and supports safe spaces for enjoying kink and BDSM play. You may recognize him as Mr. December in the Bare Chest Calendar and currently Mr. Daddy’s Barbershop Leather 2019.

Jawn is involved in community service and outreach. He assisted the coast guard after hurricane Katrina by going door to door searching for survivors. He seeks to be a positive light, educating on suicide prevention and promotes inclusivity and diversity for all.
