Member of the homosexual male subculture that grew out of male-only motorcycle clubs formed by homosexual veterans returning from World War II, stressing masculinity in contradiction of androgynous and effeminate gay stereotypes, characterized by a fetish for leather gear, a sense of hierarchy and a fraternal code of protocol and behavior, and often sexually involved in BDSM (bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism).
Pride in masculinity, honor among brothers and a bent for rough-and-tough sexuality made the leatherman the butch male icon of homosexual machismo.

Tom of Finland's drawings present the leatherman in his finest form.
