Trinity describes herself as an evolving femme switch with service top attitude. A single parent and hard-working leather woman, Trinity's interests include service, education, artistic needle play, D/s, leather history, rope and florentine flogging. She is described by some as kind, trustworthy and ambitious; a busy woman with a knack for filling her dance card way beyond capacity. Trinity believes that staying busy, building bridges and fundraising have their rewards.
Prior to her involvement in the leather community, a series of events caused her to question her path. She decided to shake off the confines of society's mores in favor of living her life her own way and on her own terms. It was then that she discovered the leather community and opened a delicious new chapter in her life.
Trinity's community service includes emceeing, fundraising, volunteering, judging and tallymaster. She has produced events in support of charities such as the East Bay Children's Book Club and COLAGE. Whether she’s working behind the scenes or putting the fun into fundraising, Trinity continues to lend her time and energy to projects that effectively serve the LGBTQ community.
Trinity is proud of her titles, Ms. ACL2010 and American Leatherwoman 2011. Her title responsibilities have afforded her national recognition, she has enjoyed traveling to various events and meeting new people. Even though she has much to learn, Trinity has no doubt she will find her niche while staying spiritually grounded and forming lasting relationships. She is intrigued by how much the leather community has to offer and looks forward to continuing to serve in the community.

Shad Cruz is a second-generation San Diego native, who grew up in North Park and graduated from San Diego High School. When he came out at 16 he marched in the San Diego Gay Pride Parade, carrying a banner at the front of the parade with that year’s theme, “PROUD.” Less than a year later he bought his first pair of handcuffs at the Crypt on Washington, which he still carries today.
Shad was awarded the title of Mr. SoCal Leather in 2012 and was First Runner Up for the Mr. Los Angeles Leather 2012 Contest. At the request of his contest producer he has continued to carry the title of Mr. SoCal Leather for 2013. He was a judge for the Mr. Christopher Street West Leather 2013 Contest and the Mr. Los Angeles Leather 2013 Contest. He is an active member of the SoCal Bondage Club and the Communications Officer of the Los Angeles Band of Brothers. Shad is very proud to return to San Diego to take part in the celebration of ROMP and the combined Mr and Ms San Diego Leather 2013.
