Founded in October 2014, Drummer North America (DNA) rekindles the Drummer tradition of self-identified masculinity of gay men, at an annual family reunion where history is honored and diversity respected. Drummer California is one of twelve regions that compete currently for the North American title. And the California region is the whole state, plus Baja California Norte, MX.
Alongside social and educational events, Drummer California weekend features three fetish contests for gay men: Drummer, Drummerboy and Drummer Bootblack.
Unlike contests restricted to only leather or rubber, or a specific power dynamic such as Master/slave and Sir/boy, DNA contest titles are open to a broader spectrum of fetish identities of gay men — from rubber, uniforms, skinhead and leather, to sports kit, military and punk. DNA is as diverse as your DNA. DNA contests are open to all gay-identified men in the fetish/kink communities, who are residents of Canada, United States and Mexico.
While DNA is a celebration of gay masculinity and the contests are open exclusively to gay male contestants, DNA weekend embraces and welcomes our kinky sisters and queer family to join the celebration and participate among the ‘Women of Drummer.’
The diversity celebrated at DNA weekend also makes a welcoming home for fetishists that migrate across a wide range of gear and play, and gay kinksters who are equally comfortable exploring power dynamics at both ends or anywhere along the spectrum.
