Remembering Daniel Dumont

The fetish community lost one of its great men in 2020, Daniel Dumont. 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.

Daniel was also one of the people who was active for many years at Leatherpride Belgium and later Darklands. He helped organising the first Mr. Leather Belgium Contests and used his network and knowledge for so many other activities at the event.

Darklands has organised several moments to remember Daniel.

Posthumous Honorary X-Award

Daniel will be commemorated with a posthumous honorary X-Award for his life long  dedication to the world wide fetish community. The Award will be given on Sunday afternoon at the end of the 2022 X-Award ceremony.

Memorial Ceremony

Sunday 8 May, 6pm-7pm – Outdoor area at Darklands
We invite everyone to join a brief serene moment to pay last respects to the wonderful person that Daniel was. 

The memorial service is a moment for everyone to come together to say goodbye to Daniel. A serene ceremony where we will reminisce.  Guests who join the ceremony can lay down a flower at Daniels picture. Close friends will speak a few words in Daniels honour. Don & Dirk bring an acoustic muscial intermezzo after which we give a final greeting.

Memorial Dinner
