Danny P. Kaylor-Hawkins – Judge
Danny P. Kaylor-Hawkins is a proud native Washingtonian. Soon after coming out he started working in many of the local gay bars and other gay establishments. Like many of us, the leather and bear community immediately felt like home. As a bearded bear and leatherman, that is where he focused his attention and soon began producing club events to bring people together. The originator of go-go bears, Danny’s events gave the bear and leather community someplace to go and have fun in a welcoming atmosphere.
He has spent his year raising funds for several organizations including HIV Smart, One Orlando, and several local causes. He developed many treasured friendships around the country as Mr. DC Eagle, and sees his leather journey as far from over. He looks forward to continuing the work he began and to bringing people together for a drink or a cigar and a laugh.
