The first time I met Daniel Dumont was 2009 at the AGM in Rome. I had just become President of LMC Vienna a few month and it was my first trip to such a big fetish meeting like this.
I didn’t know anything about meetings like this and I remember it was a big chaos. Lots of discussions, the bookkeeping was a mess, and talks went on for hours…
On that day Daniel Dumont was elected as the new ECMC Secretary. He brought back structure to the ECMC, had new visions for the leather community and tried to promote new clubs in regions where no new leather clubs were especially in the eastern bloc countries.
Over the last 10 years we became friends and I will always remember him as a great leather friend who was always there to provide me with help and advice.
