Oregon State Bootblack

Oregon State Bootblack 2017

Jax Black

It isn’t when you show up, it’s how you show up. Jax found home in the Leather and bootblacking communities a year and a half ago, and has been making up for lost time ever since. A member of PDX Bootblacks, they love any opportunity to black at public events, but are equally passionate about finding all opportunities to offer leather care, from fixing a femme’s heels at IMsL to guiding someone through their first shine poolside at Desire. When they’re not bootblacking, Jax operates a monthly queer dungeon party that raises money for LGBTQ+ organizations, is a patched member of Portland’s chapter of Dykes on Bikes, and can be found baking, woodworking, or enjoying a fine cigar. If they can’t be found, they’re probably on a long motorcycle ride with their partner, Morgan. Jax flags black, grey, and red on the left, and loves boot play, from both sides.
