Laird Hotel Melbourne, Australia

The Laird invites you to AWOL 2024 – A Week of Leather and Fetish, undoubtedly Australia’s premier series of geared-up and stripped-down events for same-sex attracted CIS and Trans males.

Between 5th and 12th August, AWOL 2024 will provide an array of events which appeal to the leather and fetish enthusiast, as well as those on the curious side.

It’s a week jam-packed with events, kicking off with Meet Market, and featuring two great parties – AWOL Jock Party (gear down) and HUSTLE – Commit to Kink (gear up). The week is rounded out with the Hand Jobs Art Exhibition, Eagle Sessions, High Shine, Kink Wars and Happy Ending.

AWOL would not be possible without the year-round support of our family of Laird Leathermen, Boot Blacks, Ropers, Buzz Cutters and all the kinksters who make The Laird a haven for guys into gear.

A huge shout out to Kenny aka originalkendolll on Insta for the awesome AWOL 2024 graphics.

Cheers, Brett and Mark, The Laird
