An active member of the San Francisco Leather Community, she has done extensive fundraising and has been groomed and mentored, Leather titleholders both locally and nationally. She is a graduate of the Journeyman 3 Academy, a member of the Exiles, a member of Mama’s Family, a former member of the Leather Forum and she currently serves on the board for the IMSL Foundation. She was an original member of the SF Bootblack Studio, later known as the NorCal Bootblacks. She was responsible for bringing back the International Sir/boy, California Community Bootblack Title back to Northern California. As the first woman to bootblack in Leather bars in San Francisco, she was determined to seek more opportunities for both female identified Bootblacks and for Bootblacks of color to apply their craft. By breaking down barriers, Ms.V has paved the way for many other Bootblacks. She became the resident Bootblack for both the Powerhouse, and Chaps II/Kok Bars. She enjoyed a long tenure as the Bootblack to the former SF Stompers Boots store, servicing and restoring hundreds of boots. She presently co-hosts the Queer Leather Happy Hour and continues to foster community in Leather. She is spiritual in her Leather journey. To her, Bootblacking is religion. It is a deep and soul satisfying process which is an expression of love and joyful devotion to her community and her people, which requires dedication. Her journey has taken her from trying to shine and perfect every boot to finding beauty in imperfection. Her process is simple, slow, and uncluttered and it reveres the authenticity of the boot above all. It’s about honoring the intrinsic beauty and function of that boot, appreciating all of its imperfection, impermanence, and incompleteness. Simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, sensuality and appreciation. She continues to preserve the tradition of “honoring stories” by supporting the next generation of bootblacks and by spreading the gospel of boots. She is spiritual in her Leather journey and she shines in her artful Leather care.
