The Central Canada Drummer contests are designed to better reflect the reality of gay men active today in the fetish/kink communities. Each title is open to the broad spectrum of fetish identities celebrated by gay men — from rubber, uniforms, skinhead and leather, to sports kit, military, punk and more — and reach beyond any one specific power dynamic. Eligible contestants are gay-identified biological or trans men in the fetish/kink communities, age 21 or older, and residents of Ontario. (Age 21 is the legal age to compete at the DNA contests held in the United States.)
