In March I gave speeches about the Spanner Trust at SM Gays and the London Alternative Market. I tried out several forms of suspension at Just Rope, and the following weekend flew to Tulsa to be the Master of Ceremonies at the Tulsa Mr Leather contest. The weekend ended with a trip to Outback Steakhouse, where I explained my food allergy to the waiter and he said "oh - you need to see our gluten free menu!" (which is also available for download as a .pfd from their website). One three course, gluten free meal later I was ready to fly home.

One of the beneficiaries of the Tulsa Mr Leather contest was the Openarms Youth Project. As part of my weekend in Oklahoma I was given a tour of the project by Board President, Tim Gillean. He kindly agreed to be interviewed for this column:

Have fun, look after yourselves and the people you play with.
