About Dominion

Eagle chair

Born in Washington, DC, Dominion ONYX is an out, proud, Black Gay Leatherman and Kinkster who loves other Black and Latino Gay Men (hell, ALL MEN!!). He is a writer, a blogger, and all-around bon vivant who loves good conversation with good friends over good food and drinks. Dominion is also a Sadistic Leather Daddy and a Bear, into all that kinky shit that you are afraid to talk about, but always wanted to try.

He is a past President and co-founder of the Mid-Atlantic chapter of ONYX, the leather fraternity for Gay and Bisexual Men of Color, and is a delegate to the ONYX National Council. Dominion has written about and taught classes on Spanking, Flogging, Nipple Play, Electro-Play, Torture, Humiliation, Sadism, and Assplay, and lectured extensively on Sex Positivity and Diversity in the Leather Community. Dominion spearheads ONYX’s partnership with Widener University’s PhD Human Sexuality Program, which exposes future clinicians and educators to the Leather community. He has helped ONYX raise over $25,000 for a number of charitable causes. In 2016, Dominion was honored to be a Tallymaster for IML 38. He flags Black, Red, Pink, Fuchsia, and Yellow, among others, all on the left side.

The first story Dominion ever wrote was called “Super Fats”, the somewhat true tale of a chubby young Black boy and his adventures in the world. As his classmates and even the teacher roared with laughter, he knew he had found his calling. On through his melancholy teenage years, his writing continued to reflect his observations of the world around him, sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always truthful. Not afraid to poke fun at himself, Dominion prides himself on revealing the world as it is, uninhibited by the rose-colored lenses of our perceptions. Considered shady by some, Dominion prefers to offer cruel observations, and if his observations cast a shadow over the foolishness of the world, Dominion suggests that you address the darkness, not curse the light.

He offers these cruel observations on the world of Black and Latino gay men, dating, and life in general through his blog, Dominion’s Opinions. He is the author of Alex and Alonzo: A Love Story, the erotic/romantic/pornographic tale of two men who meet one night on train to work, available on Amazon. A lifelong believer of the power of the written word, Dominion conceived Alex and Alonzo as a response to one dimensional portrayals of Black and Latino men as Homothugs. More than just erotica, Alex and Alonzo is the adventure of two men who meet and fall in love, and having mind-blowing sex along the way. Check out the Alex & Alonzo page for excerpts from upcoming chapters of the Love Story!

Dominion co-hosts The BGKH Show, a weekly video podcast recapping of pop culture, the world of kink and fetish, and general shenanigans with his good Brista Epic every Wednesday at 8pm EST live on YouTube. Tune in and join in the discussion of all things Black, Gay, Kinky, and Human.
