Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend, better known as MAL Weekend, an event that attracts thousands of leathermen, kinksters, fetish-lovers and curious spectators from all over the world, returns to Washington, D.C in 2022!

For the first time, the Centaur Motorcycle Club (Centaur MC) is partnering with some of the hottest producers in DC: Dougie Meyer of Dougie Meyer Presents, JMar Productions’ Jimmy Martin, La Fantasy’s Jesus Quispe, and Zach Nalbone of Takeover Presents – who, collectively, are the team of KINETIC.

They will produce five official events that will feature eleven of the world’s leading DJs: Alex Acosta, Ben Bakson, Brett Oosterhaus, Cindel, Conner Curnick, Dan Slater, GSP, Isaac Escalante, J Warren, Onyx, and Tom Stephan. KINETIC: MAL Weekend takes place January 13 – 17, 2022 at various venues throughout Washington DC.

Tickets are available HERE.

“Whether you're a jock, bear, wolf, otter, or any other member of our community, all are welcome to unleash their urges on the largest dance floors MAL has ever seen,” says Dougie Meyer.

“We have secured the city’s best and most colossal venues for KINETIC: MAL Weekend,” continues Jesus Quispe. Because last year’s weekend was canceled due to Covid, they are anticipating larger crowds than ever. “There will be lots of dancing, cruising, and sliding into one other,” Quispe laughs.

The weekend kicks off on Thursday, January 13th with the BOOTCAMP party where men will have their first chance to meet their fellow revelers, get geared up for the weekend and grab their complimentary dog tags. DJs Onyx and J Warren will provide the beats designed to prepare all for the next three days of debauchery.

The first Main Event takes place on Friday, January 14th. That is when DC’s popular UNCUT party becomes UNCUT XL and KINETIC: MAL Weekend debuts a brand-new warehouse space with state-of-the-art sound and lighting. The Friday night bacchanal continues into the wee morning with INSOMNIA, an after-party with DJs Cindel and Alex Acosta that starts at 3:30 am and doesn't end until well after the sun comes up.

The Saturday parties begin with the TeaBag Tea Dance at 3 pm when Dan Slater takes men on a musical journey as the sunsets. Then, at 10 pm, is KINETIC: MAL Weekend’s spotlight extravaganza: the Saturday night main event taking place at Echostage, recently voted the #1 Club in the World by DJ Magazine.

Headlined by Ben Bakson and GSP, KINETIC: KINK will be the first LGBTQ+ Saturday main event at the multilevel space and will feature live fetish acts, epic performances, and more chains and whips than can be imagined.

“This is Ben Bakson’s debut in Washington, D.C. and we could not be more excited to have him at the largest main event in the history of MAL Weekend,” says Zach Nalbone.

General admission and VIP tickets for KINETIC: Mal Weekend are available now at MAL2022.com. Proof of vaccination or negative COVID test within the previous 5 days will be required for entry to all events, no exceptions. Vaccination proof can include an original vaccination card or copy, a digital photo of the card, or a digital vaccination record on your phone.

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.
