Exactly one year ago the worldwide fetish community fell silent with the news that Daniel Dumont had passed. Daniel was known by many for his commitment to the fetish community. He supported many new clubs and was the strong man behind the Mr Leather Europe election. For many years Daniel was secretary of the ECMC, European Confederation of Motorcycle Clubs.
Remembering a giant
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic there hasn’t been a moment yet to commemorate Daniel properly. It is expected that, if they take place, Folsom Europe and Nice So Fétiche will organise a gathering to do so.
The Darklands Festival in Antwerp where Daniel was closely involved has announced to host a memorial dinner on Sunday evening where close friends will speak a few words and everyone who knew Daniel is welcome to join the dinner in his honour. Joining the dinner won’t require a Darklands entry ticket. All proceedings will go to charities that were close to Daniel.
Daniel will also receive a posthumous X-Award for his life long dedication to the worldwide fetish community.
Shortly after his passing, many people close to Daniel wrote about their memories of Daniel. Alphatribe has collected those memories. Click on the link below to see them.
