After a 5 year break, GearBlast:UK will be taking place in Birmingham on August 23rd and 24th, and I’m looking forward to being there for the weekend.
For me, GearBlast:UK is special, and not just because it’s hosted by three of my closest friends (Boots, ZX6Rlad and Scubaccs) – the original GBUK in 2009 in Preston was the first pervy event I’d attended.
Despite being shy and still fairly new to the whole gear scene, it was a friendly, welcoming and non-intimidating event, and a place where I met some of my now closest friends in person for the first time. I even met my boyfriend Rubberwulf there (though at the time didn’t talk to him enough to get to know him – how things change!). Being able to be in full rubber and in the company of others in full gear made for a very fun weekend, and helped me form friendships I’m still thankful for to this day.
I’ve grown up a lot since then, and while I still may be shy and don’t really go to events, this is one weekend I’m looking forward to. It’s a chance to be geary with my friends, as well as finally meet some people I’ve been chatting to online for a while – and that’s never a bad thing!
