Jennifer Deese - 2018 Historian

Ms. Southeast Leatherfest 2015


Jennifer calls Monroe, NC home for now. Also known as Orange, she has been out and about in the community for over a decade. Founder and/or cofounder of several different groups including The Charlotte Traveling Munch and Carnival of Madness, she believes in the if you build it they will come approach to leather and kink, especially if ones needs aren't being met.
